Partner League Round-up
Welcome to Partner League Round-up #9
Hey PL'ers
I hope you and your clients are having a successful BFCM. I know we’re in the thick of it now, so thanks for opening this newsletter and reading. Check out the great pieces of curated content below.
Some community news and asks this week:
  • We’ve updated our website and have included a vendor marketplace/listing section to highlight top vendors for Shopify Partner businesses. It’s a paid placement opportunity for vendors. Our request to you is to write a short review if you used any of the services/apps and recommend vendors we can potentially add to the marketplace. Just reply to this email or catch me on Slack with suggestions.
  • We’re looking for more members to interview for our spotlight feature on our blog. The written interviews are a great way to introduce yourself to the community and our network beyond the community. Take a look at the questions here - and send your replies to me on Slack and we’ll publish and syndicated in the next couple of weeks.
  • 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.

A line that I’m sitting with this morning…

“Don’t be an extra in your own movie.”
Photo of the week
This week I put a new destination/project on my bucket list. I was chatting with a young Irishmen who was working as a brand ambassador fro Jamieson, serving/promoting Irish Whisky at a party in Spain. Nice branding play, right!
Anyway, we got to talking about Ireland and what to see outside of Dublin, and he mentioned the Wild Atlantic Way. I’d never heard of it, so I did a bit of research. Stretching from Cork right through to Donegal, the Wild Atlantic Way is Ireland’s showcase scenic route and the ultimate road trip you can have on the island. Wow! Now planning this for 2022 (hopefully). If you’ve done this route, please share your experience with me.
