Su Sanni: We created WeDidIt because we wanted to wake up every morning doing something that was tied to making other people's lives better.
SS: Bryan Liff would be played by either Chevy Chase or Bill Murray, Ben Lamson would be played by Matt Damon, and I'd be played by a young Wesley Snipes. It'd somehow be a comedy/action movie....and probably terrible.
SS: Facing adversity and uncertainty every day, but being motivated enough to deliberately overcome those challenges. "Jumping out of a plane and building a parachute on the way down" is great analogy for this experience.
SS: For the first 18 months of our business, Ben and I moved in together, renting an apartment deep into Brooklyn. We literally ate rice & beans every day until we were making enough money to pay ourselves a decent wage. Although we loved the journey we were on, we certainly sacrificed the six-figure jobs we left, cushy apartments in Manhattan, and tons of time with friends and family to launch WeDidIt.
