Thank you to everyone who provided feedback last week! I was so surprised and thankful for the amount of thoughtful replies that I received.
Nothing is changing with the newsletter. Going to stick with the status quo of 2x week for now and try to be as transparent as possible with future guests regarding the growing backlog.
As always, reply to these emails with any thoughts or feedback. I love to read and respond to them.
