Partner League Round-up
Welcome to Partner League Round-up #8
Hey PL'ers
I took a couple weeks off of the newsletter but we’re back. We’ve been busy behind the scenes with a few big community updates which will get us off to a great start in 2022.
Here’s what’s new and coming:
  • We’ve migrated our subscriptions away from Subbly - a subscription management software - and directly onto Stripe for now. We currently don’t have a member portal to manage subscriptions so all changes/updates or cancellations requests need to go to hello@partnerleague.net OR members can message Lidia on Slack (our community manager), and she will promptly make the changes for you.
  • We’ve updated our website and will push it live on Monday. The biggest changes are around clarifying the copy and we added a vendor marketplace to help our members make better choices when choosing software and service providers. This marketplace will also give the opportunity to top/vetted vendors (companies that serve Shopify partner businesses) to promote their offers to our community.
  • We’re preparing a layer to the community that will enhance the experience on Slack by adding community-oriented features that aren’t native to Slack. This will be rolled out mid-December and really enhance the networking/learning possibilities within the community.
If you’re not a Partner League member yet, join us or book a call with me to learn more about how our community is helping members accelerate growth through networking, partnerships, and peer support.

Remember diversification is how you preserve wealth, not get it.

Find something you’re obsessed with and go all in.

Diversify once you make it.
Photo of the week
Photo of Dresden Christmas market - Germany’s oldest Christmas market, traditionally called Striezelmarkt, has a Centuries-old history dating back as early as 1434. Photo credit: unknown
I’m a big fan of the holiday season and love the festive and entrepreneurial energy these markets.
This photo also prompted me to think consciously of where I will be spending money this holiday season. A much as possible, I will try to spend it locally and with smaller retailers, online and off.
