The blessing of trials.

WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg at the Lean Startup conference.

Fast-forward to 21:10 for his comments about the hiring process at Automattic starting with trials.

I wasn’t a fit for Automattic (and vice-versa), but I’m extremely thankful that I had the trial experience first *before* going all-in and finding out that it wasn’t for me.

Spoiler: I don’t enjoy working remotely. I like having a shared space with colleagues around. ;) I work better that way. Remote work isn’t for everyone.
