Error with top-level await while running data migration script

Last updated: May 26, 2023
Hello! I am trying to write some data migration scripts and started with something basic and am running into an error that, while it is not really a Sanity issue, it is while I’m running through
sanity exec
and was not sure if that had anything to do with it. I’m running my command as such from the root of my Sanity project
sanity exec ./scripts/migration/migrateBlips.ts --with-user-token
and my code which is pretty straight forward gives me the error
Top-level await is currently not supported with the "cjs" output format
Here is my code

import { getCliClient } from 'sanity/cli';

const client = getCliClient().withConfig({ apiVersion: '2023-05-24' })

const loadCategories = async () => {
    const categories = await client.fetch('*[_type == "category"]');
    categories.forEach(category => {

try {
  await loadCategories();
} catch (error) {
Thanks for any pointers…..

Looks like wrapping in an IIFE helps

(async () => {
  await loadCategories();
