🎉We're at +2,000 members, pancake cereal, chicken coups, stress relief, money, hand-shakes
A fun bi-weekly resource-rich newsletter for founders, funders, and friends.

🙌🏽 Thanks, for joining in! We’re at over 2,000 newsletter subscribers ( 🔼 38% MoM) and now you can become a paid member and get more benefits!
Paid members will receive the bi-weekly newsletter, get monthly invites to group ask-me-anything Q&A sessions, and pitch deck feedback. Non-paid members will only receive the bi-weekly newsletter.
As states are starting to reopen, consider that we’ve had 1.3 million COVID cases and that countries that opened up again are seeing resurges of COVID. So, maybe to be safe, stay in and make yourself a bowl of baby pancake cereal. After that, you can do a DIY haircut ( 🔼 +750%), attend a virtual wedding, take food production into your own hands and set up your very own chicken coup ( 🔼 +250%), and relax to Yo-Yo Ma’s cello (or join a distance disco). If you do go out, please keep 6-feet of physical distance from others, wear a mask, use hand-sanitizer, and wipe things down with disinfecting wipes. Josh and I will be doing all those things on our flight back to San Diego today!
I’ll share notes on our coast-to-coast flight experience on Twitter. To distract ourselves from the stress of travel, we’ll listen to this stress relief playlist and discuss startup-fund matching tool improvements (we’ve had +120 submissions from underestimated founders and 1 founder has already gotten an investment offer! 🎉). And I’ll also reflect on two questions. How can my sales team more efficiently sell on-demand software-developers (day-job-joy)? Should I launch a Patreon page to support founders (weekend-pondering)?
P.S. Twitter may have just made WFH a forever thing. Yes, please.
