🎉 We're at +1,000 members, side-hustles, founders course, coronavirus preparedness, metrics, and more

This is a bi-weekly newsletter offering helpful life and work updates/resources for founders, funders, family, and friends.

Hi all! Welcome to all new subscribers of our newsletter. We are now +1,000 members! Grateful for all of you. And because many of you are curious and asked for it, I’ll share bi-weekly helpful life and work updates/resources for founders, funders, family, and friends.

On that note, about a month ago, I asked Twitter if a first-time founders course (FTFC) was needed and I got +300 people saying yes. So, I’m giving the course a go with Josh! We have full-time day jobs so this side-hustle will take a bit to 100% materialize. That said, we’re devoting our weekends to FTFC and working on module one. We expect to launch a beta with 10 volunteers soon.

Stay safe, coronavirus prepared, and share your ideas on how to keep making this newsletter better!

Funders

Whether you’re raising or not. It’s awesome to know that there is a rising number of women investing!

Founders

There’s a lot of talk about whether the people launching businesses are the right ones to do it. This helps put things in perspective.

Operators

Whether you have a full-time job, a side-hustle, or any kind of business, it’s important to focus on the metrics that matter.


Friends

Yeah. I make friends on twitter and show my appreciation by sharing their projects, articles, and quotes. Twitter a powerful tool for relationship building with awesome people.
