🙋🏻♂️You’re looking at an entry for TKer Notes, a new offering I’m currently exploring for subscribers. TKer Notes would be a place where I’d compile all the eye-catching, thought-provoking stuff I come across. It wouldn’t necessarily come with the context you get with TKer’s main newsletter offerings. Writing a whole newsletter takes time!
If this were something I moved forward with, you’d be able to subscribe to it separately (because I know the last thing many of us need are more emails). As always, everything I do is informed by your feedback. If you have a second, check out TKer Notes. And share your thoughts with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
