A curated list of links and resources...
Remember when we were all isolated at home during the pandemic and we had all the time in the world for content?
We were consuming a lot of content. So much so, startups and content creators were booming and growing fast. Now, we’re all back in the world and living with little to no time to consume content at the same rate.

So here we are, despite all of those things, Joshua and I making content :) Perhaps we can crack the code and make meaningful content with insightful conversations, rewarding inspiration, and helpful resources.

A new episode with Joshua and me will drop next week. Until then, here are all the links, resources, and jobs that we found interesting this past month:
