Happy Tuesday, friends.
✨ UPDATE ✨
In my efforts to provide you with LOADS of value, I might have gotten carried away…
Last week’s newsletter had more links than you knew what to do with. My bad. Let’s refocus.
So this week’s newsletter is going to have fewer links so you don’t get link overwhelm1 and can truly benefit from the quality links here. I’m always striving for improvement, and thanks to friend & long-time subscriber, Andrew for the honest & timely feedback.
So with that, let’s get into it ↓↓↓↓↓
