From My Inbox: Only Networks

I'm off to Lusty Beg this week. WTW is Lusty Beg? A 75-acre secluded island situated on Lower Lough Erne in Fermanagh, a quick 5-minute trip on the Corlougharoo ferry, and the site of AwakenHub's SheVentures summit - the first all-Ireland gathering of women founders.

So with community and connection and networks in mind, this week the πŸ’© from my inbox is really good πŸ’© from people who I don't simply admire or follow, they're people I consider friends (in the old school, circles of social connections, have dined or called or hung out or commiserated with them). I love to see what they've accomplished and what makes them tick - plus writing this newsletter is a little test of the range and novelty of my network.
