🎉ONE YEAR ANNIVERSAY!🎉 Nº50– Cycling, Startups & Sales✌🏻️

In:

One year ago I started shipping weekly newsletters. I was inspired to do so by my friend Joachim Baan and local startup hero Nalden.

Back then, I was also writing about The Importance of Being Dropped and 6 months into working for myself again for the first time since 2009.

Now a year older & wiser I really see the return in spending time each week to share experiences, ideas and interesting content. Proud to say we're now featured on Revue's explore page: getrevue.co/explore

We're now up to nearly 1k subscribers!  Please help us celebrate by tweeting this or hitting the FB share at the bottom! : )

Now more than ever, thank you for reading!

This isn’t the first Breaking Away replica. BUT ITS DAMN NICE.

A Bicycle Camper Out of Campaign Signs

A Bicycle Camper Out of Campaign Signs

Paul Elkins is tinkerer/inventor who has built a number of micro-campers, peddle-powered vehicles, boats, and more.

This bike trailer micro-camper/micro-home made almost entirely of plastic campaign signs and zip-ties. So good!

Startups

"30+ interview later we discovered the best about the human spirit."

#StartupsUnedited Season One Trailer |  #TheRealSiliconValley

9 months ago, Jorge Soto was in town for Sales Hacker Amsterdam. He interviewed me before he headed back to SF.

Now, he and Tomás De Matteis set out to verify what it's like to be a startup founder in Silicon Valley in 2016. Check out the trailer for what they found 30+ interviews later.

"For starters, workplace learnability is far less structured and formulaic than college learnability, and employees must juggle the tension between the demand for the short-term efficiencies of productivity with the long-term quest for intellectual growth." A topic this week in the office. A task I'm taking seriously for our team.

Sales

Radness

Amsterdam's answer to Pókemon Go doesn't require a phone and is fun to play on your commute.

Parts of the world are going crazy trying to catch Pokémon through their phone with augmented reality game Pokémon Go. But that doesn’t mean you need to run around town staring at your phone chasing digital creatures to see some much-needed magic in the world.

Daniel Disselkoen, a digital artist with Rotterdam-based creative agency Headmade, used Gemeentelijk Vervoers Bedrijf (GVB), the municipal transportation company of Amsterdam, to bring a low-tech, analog augmented reality game to commuters on their way to work called GVBeestje

Here's to new routines & keeping 'em going this week!
