Hey friend 🙌
I've just hopped off our monthly Happy Hour call. Among other things, we talked about fun company newsletters, so this is me trying really hard not to make this a dull one.
(Yes, I'm thinking very hard about adding a gif here, but I think I'll hold off.)
We've also talked about product roadmaps, the struggles of not being a non-native English speaker, Wendy's Twitter account, and more. You want to join us next time? I think you should.
Here's what we've got hot off the press:

Brand archetypes are formed by the combination of a brand's identity, voice, public persona, as well as how your brand corresponds to its target market.
Travis Dillard this week goes over the 12 brand archetypes and analyzes the archetypes of companies like Notion, Linear, Stripe, Klaviyo, Zapier, and more.
In December on BDTP, Claudiu Murariu (remember him from the onboarding roundtable?) taught us a lot more about the role email plays in a product, how to track the impact of your email, and the two types of impact from sending a message.
