Things Lately: Newsletters I always open

With social media and everything else, I feel that email is still the best way to connect. It feels like a more intimate space that's not as cluttered as a social feed is. I have since trimmed down my emails to the barest essentials.

Why I want to get Drop the Ball by Tiffany Dufu to as many women as possible

I came across Tiffany Dufu's book many times before.
