Now that we’re approaching 15k subscribers, I thought it a good time to A) say thank you for not unsubscribing and B) ask you to share with me 1 thing you like or dislike about this email. DM me. We spend 2-3 hours each month putting this together, so we might as well do it right. Right?
And C) give you the lay of the land of this monthly email…
