Great to see you again! I hope you had a kick ass month.
In my last email, I decided to make a few changes. One of those included moving this newsletter to Substack. As you can see, it’s now complete. 🙂
I also mentioned proof submissions would be removed moving forward (excluding this one). That doesn’t mean you can’t still do the challenges on your own. In fact, I encourage it.
Finally, for the past month I’ve been thinking about this newsletter and what we stand for. I came up with a tagline:
Life's biggest moments happen outside of our comfort zone.
What do you think?
Alright, let’s jump into this week's challenge.
This challenge also includes a reward for those who complete it.
