I went to a fabulous MoMonday event yesterday, organised by the lovely and accomplished Stephanie Staples. Sprawled across the stage, right in front of the speakers, was this giant stuffed lizard. I kid you not.
You can read the newsletter I wrote about it here, but I wanted to make sure that you had the right links – I put the wrong ones in the newsletter, and unfortunately MailChimp won’t let me edit it after the fact. I will put this erratum in the next newsletter, too.
So much learning in such a short time! I hope your week is full of fun and learning, too!
So this week my newsletter was about coffee. Specifically, it was about Noah Kagan‘s Coffee Challenge. In short, you are supposed to go into a coffee shop, order a fancy coffee, then ask the barista for a 10% discount. I go into the reasons for this in the newsletter.
I got a couple of interesting reactions to the newsletter, which I will quote in next week’s edition, with permission. But I want to extract one statement:
I actually think its not fair to the barrista – why have to make her or him have to confront a customer?
I asked one friend who actually worked as a barista at Starbucks, and she didn’t seem to think it was an issue. But I’d love to know what you think.
Another brief newsletter plug. I decided to give the lizard metaphor a rest, so this week I talked about the monkey mind. Have a look at the archive and see if you want to sign up! I’d be so delighted if you did.
Nutrition is a really complicated, nasty, multi-layered issue. So I had a few things to say about it. Go see in the newsletter archives what’s missing from the picture. Sign up for the newsletter so you get it every week. Hit reply and talk to me. If this whole thing isn’t about conversation, what is it about??
It’s another newsletter edition! Click on the image to see a larger version. I’m talking about ways in which we can convince our screaming inner toddler to go to sleep already. Not with coercion but with love.
If you are interested in a conversation about the ways in which we can calm that toddler and learn and grow, sign up for the newsletter – there’s a form right in the sidebar. You can see the ones you missed in the archive, but it is more fun to get your own! Especially as we can then converse by email rather than having to post a comment here on the blog. Just easier and more personal.
You’ll also get a roundup of the week’s blog posts, in case you were relying on Facebook or Twitter to let you know when a new one comes out. Apparently Facebook is now only showing content to about 7% of a page’s followers.
But I think that’s the subject of a whole other rant … nu, so join the newsletter already.
