You can definitely get a job elsewhere! Employers relish in the failed entrepreneur in many ways (well, not "too fail-y.") Definitely consider reaching out to any kind of network or just polishing up a resume on LinkedIn. Quitting is for winners!

Can we please not get so fucking rape jokey? Does anyone actually understand the shit they're saying? 

"All Heyward and his team had to do was not screw the pooch.
