Hello! I feel like recently these irregular issues are more surprises for readers than managing to stay on a schedule. I hope that's ok for you! ; )
Well, since I last wrote, I got married! And on the day that corona restrictions relaxed here in Holland. What an amazing day! (proper photos from my friend Stephan de Goede soon!) It was a beautiful day & wonderful to have so many loved ones there for our special day!
As far as cute emoji annotated cliff notes list of lessons to share, this issue won't have one but the rhyming subject line is from senscommon's survey below. It inspired me look for links about apparel in my inbox and I found this from Hiten Shah:
"When I meet people who are building a startup, I often tell them to seek advice from entrepreneurs in other industries. Many of the best lessons about starting a business from scratch still apply. I was reminded of this recently when I listened to Lululemon Founder Chip Wilson on Tim Ferriss's podcast. The story of how he went from a pipeline worker to an apparel tycoon will blow you away."
I never was a Tim Ferriss fan per sé and certainly not a Lululemon fan, ha! But I love Hiten's tip to "seek advice from entrepreneurs in other industries". Give it a listen & let me know what you think!

I've been saying it for years: car is over!
In other news, The USA has eight parking spaces for every car...
"What does Peloton reflect about our current moment — and what ideas (about fitness, about lifestyle, about consumption) is it challenging or solidifying?"
Kind of a long read. And for someone unfamiliar with just how huge Peloton has become, it is quite an eye-opener.
Has the sense that you should love your job only made things worse for workers?
Well, quitting your job is apparently a sign of optimism after all.
spoiler alert: Facial recognition, route-finding software, and more have the potential for dire consequences and we have no idea how to make Tech work for society’s goals, rather than a company’s, or an individual’s. 😅 🙈
ah, maybe Azeem has the answer: “Exponential: How Accelerating Technology Is Leaving Us Behind and What to Do About It”
