Barcelona's Weekly Tech Update
By Scott from Barcinno • Issue #430 • View online
Hello and happy Monday,
Today’s main headlines:
  • Revolut registered by Bank of Spain for crypto trading 📈
  • Barca gets €100M from Socios to expand web3 efforts 🌌
  • Heura’s turnover surges by 93% 🌿  
Phrase of the week: “Cerrado por vacaciones” ⛱😎
There’s been lots of articles & LinkedIn posts circulating about the internal battle of taking time off as a CEO, founder or other generally relied-upon member of staff. 
Some are feeling guilt, some admit they never really switch off even when on a tropical island, and some thrive on the non-stop entrepreneur lifestyle. Others are finding a balance to ease the angst: VP at Bumble Priti Joshi says she feels better doing a 5-minute email and Slack check-in every morning, even though she doesn’t respond. 
On the flipside, there’s Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, who always takes 6 weeks off a year to ensure a proper work-life balance.
So what’s the best way to go about it? 
Here’s our thought: it’s about building and training the right team. If you trust them, you’ll be less stressed about unplugging and more able to relax. 
Do you agree? What’s your approach? Let us know by replying to this email :)
