1/ Funny story about this room.

This is where @MorningBrew started.

Every AM @businessbarista and I would get up early and flyer every single table.

Every day, for months.
2/ Later, we wanted to raise a little money.

As undergrads, we reached out to the MBA Venture fund to invest.

We were a bit intimidated by the MBAs, but we knew they all read and thought they'd invest.

We were excited to have money to grow.
3/ Instead, they responded with this.
4/ I think they were excited to turn us down.

We missed out on their $100k check. They missed out on a 150% IRR investment.

5/ Feel free to RT this story. I dont know who sent that email, but I'd love for them to see it.

Update: believe I found who sent the email.

An important message on National Coffee Day:

A latte is not a coffee.
RT if you agree. Also RT if you disagree.
A latte is simply a glass of milk with a little bit of coffee in it

The power law in content creation is underrated.

- 80% of twitter followers come from your top 1% of tweets
- The most well-known newsletter writers are known for their top 5 pieces
The interesting thing is once the reputation is build as the "___ guy/girl", it typically sticks.

Wonder why so many people have it in their Twitter bio?
This is why GTM in the creator economy is so important.

If your first 5 pieces are bangers are get traction, you're "set for life".
