Newsletter: 052 | Fifty-Two

Newsletter 052.png


What started on a whim became a weekly staple for a whole year.  In October 2017, shortly after launching the law firm, I set out to publish a newsletter every Sunday for 52 consecutive weeks.  Not missing one week has been a proud achievement.  It's not so much the newsletter itself as it is the ambitious goal behind it.  Researching, consuming, summarizing, and creating quality content on a weekly basis while running a professional services business is no small feat.  It was never easy getting the newsletter done, and there was always a good excuse for skipping a week.  But I looked at the newsletter as I do most other things – a test of work ethic, character, and perseverance.  It's been a fun ride over the past year, and I look forward to sharing the next iteration of the newsletter.
