failories newsletter


👋 Hey Failories! It’s Nico over here.

On Monday I sent an email asking you for feedback on Failory’s new project, which consists of launching our first digital product. 93 people have replied to it and it’d be incredibly helpful if you do it if you haven’t yet 😉 Here’s the link. I promise it won’t take you more than 1 minute!

Besides that, this week we published two new interviews and carried out our monthly report, which you can find at the bottom of this email. The report was well-received last month so I’ll keep sending them 😉

This newsletter is sponsored by NerdPilots.
