[BAWD #73] Google Africa and Headless Commerce Summit
Hello dear friend 👋🏾,
I trust you had a blissful week? Sorry, I’m some days late. Btw, here’s a friendly reminder from Pillow Thoughts: “You can't skip chapters; that's not how life works. You have to read every line and meet every character. You won't enjoy all of it. Hell, some chapters will make you cry for weeks. You will read things you don't want to read; you will have moments when you don't want the pages to end. But you have to keep going. Stories keep the world revolving. Live yours, dont miss, out.”
If you love the content I share, please forward this email, share it on social media or invite your friends to subscribe. I’ll also appreciate your feedback or suggestion(s); thanks!
