The Best of Growth Report
The Growth Report #71
Congrats my friend,
Another year is (almost) over and you and I, we’ve made it through.
So high five to that 🙌
This newsletter has been sent to your inboxes 40 times this year, including 20 podcast episodes with the movers and shakers of the marketing world.
So today I am here to thank you.
Thank you for being part of this journey and taking the time to read these words every week. And thank you for sending me your honest feedback. Your emails, calls and text messages are what inspire me to keep writing.
Now, for the last newsletter of the year I did a little digging and surfaced the most popular articles, links and podcast episodes of the past 52 weeks.
So if you have missed a few editions here and there, this is the perfect time to catch up on some reading over the holidays.
This will be the last time you hear from me this year.
I'll be back on 28. January with the first edition of 2021.
Enjoy your holidays. 🎄
