I’m Sam and welcome to my once-a-month newsletter. Each month I share the latest digital products, fascinating articles and resources from some of the best new and established online creators and makers.
🆕 Personal Updates
I’ve been toying with the idea of creating a Telegram group for some time but have been reluctant to potentially add more distractions. However, after chatting to a lot of subscribers I’m blown away by the diverse talent and unique interests of the Creator Club subscribers and feel there is a missed opportunity to connect with one another outside of this newsletter and share content, side projects, ideas, wins and foster connections with other curious minds. If this is something you are interested in just hit reply and say ‘hell yeah’.
Right, let’s get to it - time for this month’s roundup 👇

This month I want to give a shout to the Weekly Filet. You know it’s a good newsletter when it’s been around since 2011 and is trusted by thousands of readers. David’s a journalist, and a curious generalist and publishes his newsletter every Friday with carefully curated recommendations on what to read, watch and listen to. Basically less news, more new insights. Expect to be surprised. Check it out!

Brian Bourque parts some fantastic insights and wisdom working at a startup. There is no doubt that working for a startup can be an incredibly accelerating experience and propel your learning to new heights in a condensed amount of time, however, it can come at a cost. Having spent 8 years working with well over 20 startups at all stages I’ve found his observations to be incredibly insightful and also made me feel some of the struggles aren’t just particular to my personal experience. Certainly worth a read if you’re currently working at a startup or considering it.

6 years ago I joined a 20-person startup.

I wanted to quit after my first week, but didn't.

Now our company is worth over $1B and has 200+ employees.

Here's what I've learned about succeeding at a startup:
⚡️ Flashback
This month I’m going to leave you with this 1988 cover of ‘Computing Across America’ by Steven K. Roberts (AKA the original digital nomad). Steven sold his house in 84 and set out to explore the US on his custom-built bike or as he referred to it as ‘The Winniebiko’. His mission was to explore 18,000 miles of the USA as proof of the concept of online connectedness. He couch-surfed and blogged long before those words/phrases became a common vernacular. It is also worth noting that this was almost a decade before the Web. Let that sink in for a minute 🤷‍♂️
That’s it for this month!
