OK, let’s dive straight into today’s newsletter. We learn something new every day, right? It’s an old maxim, true. But in a world where innovation is pervasive such a concept becomes more appropriate than ever. This is one of the reasons that drove me to write these biweekly newsletters: to share with you those new things … Continue reading July #1
