Newsletter: 035 | Two-Thirds There
We set a goal 35 weeks ago to produce a newsletter and original content every week for a year. There are obvious business reasons for putting out content on a regular basis, but the benefits have gone beyond that. There's a lot to learn from testing the ability to stick to a plan for that long. Lessons of determination, perseverance, and sacrifice are front of mind. Whether big or small, business or personal, setting specific goals with regular targets has become a new normal for us.

About our Newsletter
We decided to launch a weekly newsletter with the simple goal of cultivating community. Our newsletter covers (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 created during the previous week, 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.
