I realize everyone's twitter feed looks different. But I'll go ahead and subtweet two conversations that I see going by right now: a) How the heck did Shopify get so big this decade and b) You have to work 80 hours a week to be successful.

Re: Casper, it didn’t have to be this way. Look at Purple Mattress, $PRPL:
* Founded 2014, practically no VC raised
* Went public 2018
* Growing faster than Casper, seemingly with growing mktg efficiencies
* Just had a profitable quarter
* $570m market cap
* 1.5x TTM rev multiple
