YEN 3.0 — Goodbye and Hello, Again!

I won’t lie — finding the energy to sit down and pen this post has taken a lot longer than usual, mostly because I’ve spent most of what little energy that I do have crying all over myself.

Don’t worry, I’ll be okay. We all will.

Nothing Without Our Community

September has been a busy, but celebratory month for us at YEN and we couldn’t be happier. We upgraded our platform last week, we are officially larger than Tokelau, and our first ever Global Community Meetup is taking place this Saturday.

And although we love building this platform, we are not building it for us, we are building it for our community! Besides, they all have been doing some amazing things recently — they deserve to be recognized!
