Newsletter: 016 | 4-Year Process
The 2018 Olympic Winter Games kicked off this week. The Olympics are such a great reminder of dedication to a process. A culmination of four years of intense training for one opportunity to turn a dream into a reality. It's the kind of dedication we should keep in mind as entrepreneurs. Building a successful business is a process. The end result often gets the most attention, but it's the 1,500 days of hard work that gets you there.

Open Office Hours
Friday, February 16, 2018
@ Hub seventeen by luululemon
114 5th Avenue
(underground in lululemon's Flatiron store)
We're taking our laptops to lululemon's community space to work for a few hours and offer a chance to connect in an informal work setting. Think of it as open office hours for you to come by and chat about law, startups, crypto, wellness, etc. It'll also give you an excuse to buy some great workout gear.
You'll need to sign up online at the links provided for ticketed events. Attendance is at your own cost and subject to limited availability. No need to RSVP to us for any of these events, but let us know if you'd like to be kept in the loop on any last-minute scheduling changes. Also, keep in mind that these events are not firm-hosted or sponsored events, so we have no control over availability, pricing or any other matters associated with these events. Again, this is just our attempt at cultivating community by giving us all a chance to connect outside of the office.
About our Newsletter
We decided to launch a weekly newsletter with the simple goal of cultivating community. Our newsletter will initially cover (1) content relating to the startup industry that we liked from the previous week, giving you something to read, listen to, and watch; (2) content we recently created, keeping you up to date on news and insight from our team; and (3) events and activities we plan to host or attend in the upcoming week, providing our community of clients, partners, and friends an opportunity to share, support, and connect with each other.
