[BAWD #64] #MakeItShoppable and O$$ Programs
Hello there 👋🏾,
I trust you had a blissful last week? Sorry, I’m sending the previous week’s letter so late. I got some lemons, and I was busy making some juice with them :). Anyways, I hope this arrives timely, and you still find it useful. Btw here’s a friendly reminder that you can’t give more than you have. Normalize being a junior at several things and follow due process to grow.
