Tyler from Less Annoying Business here. Here's what's new:
What's the right format for this newsletter
I started this newsletter about six months ago, and I'd like to think it's been going well! At the same time, I don't want to assume that my first attempt was 100% correct.
I've been considering two ideas for changes:
- Switch from a weekly schedule to a monthly schedule. This way I could batch more content into one email and write a more detailed update each month. Right now, I don't feel like I have interesting things to share every single week, and I hate sending filler just to maintain the schedule.
- Send the full content of blog posts, but nothing else. I write roughly one blog post per week. I could potentially keep sending this "newsletter" on a weekly schedule, but it would just contain the full text of that week's post. This way you wouldn't have to click a link to read the post, but it wouldn't include any of the other stuff.
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK! If you have a preference on the format of this newsletter, please reply to this email and let me know. You can also feel free to suggest other approaches I haven't thought of.

As a leader, communicating change to your employees and customers is one of your most important responsibilities. Here's a trick I use.
The final episode [Podcast]
We've got some bittersweet news. Rick has accepted a new job which isn't really a fit for the topics we discuss on this podcast. Because of that, we've decided that this will be our last week recording. We'll dive into all of that during this episode.
What I've been working on
As I mentioned above, my podcast with Rick has come to an end. That's a bummer, but now I'm starting to think about what's next. I'm definitely going to take some time off podcasting, but I'm considering whether or not I should try to start a new one, or even see if I can join one that's already running. Starting new projects is so tough because there are endless possibilities. I want to skip ahead to a point after I've made the decision so I can focus on execution.
