Here in Issue 8, I wanted to say thank you to those who are still subscribed and reading. It’s an effort to write every week, but it has disciplined me into fostering a regular writing habit. I recognize not every newsletter is gold (or even bronze), but hopefully we’ll continue to do this together. The group here is small at just a little over 110 subscribers, but that intimacy permits me to write more honestly and for peers who care about what I have to say.
I am fortunate that my early-stage clients and a VC firm are still working with me and that two decades of operating independently have allowed me to weather the ups and downs of not only our industry, but also social and economic transitions at large. Despite my experience, I continue to learn. I have genuine interest in exploring new topics and am receptive to differing opinions.
In that spirit, I’d like to open up this conversation to get feedback and input, but also to offer guidance.
If you have an idea you wish to suggest, I can incorporate it into future newsletters.
If you have a specific inquiry and are amenable to having the answer shared, let me know in your reply — it could benefit others. Optionally, I’m also happy to attach a name and title to the question. Maybe we can all get to know each other a bit more.
Please send a reply if any of this is of interest.
