Community
If you see something in the markets these days that appears to make very little sense on the surface, or to be unsustainable given how incongruent it is with all of your prior ideas about the right way to invest, chances are there’s a community somewhere behind this activity. Feeding it and feeding upon it simultaneously. Tread carefully and try not to kick the beehive. The bees are highly invested emotionally. In many cases, their inclusion is literally all they have.

Decentralization Effects
This direct-to-consumer trend from major manufacturers obviously has huge implications for digital channel growth. That is because they are cutting out distribution through a physical retail intermediary. By moving their distribution to direct consumer sales, they dramatically increase their reliance on software delivery infrastructure to facilitate the consumer’s ability to browse products, place orders, receive delivery and get customer service.

The End Of The First Year And The Shape Of Things To Come
It was a year ago today that I created this Substack. A year of consistently building up a body of work, a year of refining my skills and growing my audience and experiencing for the first time the giddy thrill of making money online. Of receiving support and payment for something that I had created from scratch, rather than merely getting a monthly payday at an hourly rate from a job that has no real scope for me to slowly master a craft. The possibilities of scale, of Stripe notifications, of earning while you sleep, of recurring monthly revenue and all of those things that I had previously written off as smooth-talking guru patter became possible. Became true. The scales fell. I get it now.
