I hate paying full price for anything—but especially for software. I never wanted to buy a subscription product again, so I created AppSumo 12 years ago. Now it’s the #1 site for software deals for startups. Check it out—save money.
Three nights ago, my neighbor was playing loud rap music. I knocked loudly and angrily at 1 am.
KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK.
WHY ARE YOU PLAYING YOUR MUSIC SO LOUD?
Oh, sorry. I’ll turn it down… Do you want to come in for a drink, btw?
So I went in for a drink and now we’re friends.
Great reminder that being nice to others on both sides is nearly always more effective. Be kind.
Here's 3 fun nuggets for your week…
If you haven’t heard of Ludovico Einaudi, consider this Tiny Desk concert your crash course.
His style is a refreshing change of pace from traditional classical music. Every song’s ambience takes me to another world.
Great background music while working.
A light suitcase while traveling is a top priority for me so the stuff I pack needs to be multi-functional.
The Saturday Canvas shorts from Marine Layer are a staple. (I have them in the Bruschetta colorway)
Made of super comfy material that doesn’t wrinkle easily, I love that they can be worn casually with a t-shirt or leveled-up with a button down. Plus, the brand has sustainable practices so I feel good buying from them.
One of the best things I packed. (NOT a sponsored link, I just love ‘em)

Don’t let these lists fool you.
All of the super successful people I know were never on these lists. They didn’t need to be. From a recruitment perspective, if someone lists one in their bio it raises a yellow flag for me. I wonder if titles are more important to them than substance.
Remember that arbitrary lists are not an accurate measure of potential. Create success that speaks for itself.
