Hey 👋
What does success mean to you? 🦄✨
For a long time, I’ve been trying to figure out what success means to me.
I find the idea that hard work == more money to be a little out of whack, and after speaking to Jake and Jarratt, I realised defining personal success by “hustle” wasn’t in our culture at HelpDocs. We decided to try a different tack, defining success on how happy we are in both work and life, while maintaining a healthy company. 📈 I worked through these thoughts in a blog post, here.

I’ve also been thinking about how difficult habit forming can be—particularly after you’ve broken one—as I’ve been struggling to get back to a regular gym routine (read about that in here).

And on the subject of struggles, in this post, I come clean about how we’re breaking pretty much all the rules when it comes to marketing HelpDocs, but it seems to be working ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

In other news, we’re all super excited to be sponsoring MissingLettr’s 2-week Uppercase conference. It all kicks off at 2pm GMT today, and Jake will be speaking on Wednesday (12th September) on building a remote business without VC, so be sure to sign up to it 😄
As usual, I’ve thrown in a few great articles we’ve been reading, below. And let me know what you think of the posts. Leave your comments in the comments, tweet me or us all at HelpDocs, and share it if you like it 🙃
See you soon 👀
