Your Jet Pack is Ready (Finish Strong! Issue No. 2)
Elevating Your Game
Issue No. 2
February 3, 2012
One goal I have for this newsletter is to make it better every week. That’s why I decided to ask rising design star Aaron Scamihorn (aka @ronlewhorn) to transform my rudimentary design into something worthy of this classy audience. Thank you, Aaron, and congratulations on the new gig as Director of Design for LiveNation’s TourDesign Creative. His amazing body of web, poster and print designs has earned him a ticket to a bigger stage, so I thank him for helping us elevate our game.
First, You Need to Get in the Game
Yes, you. Don’t think you can hide behind your email server! I know you’re not fooled by the newsletter format – this is a digital jet pack designed to give you a boost. You can use this newsletter as a weekly pep talk, a source of inspiration, lining for your bird’s cage, and/or a reason to spend Friday afternoon clicking links.
Rules of this Week’s Game
Didn’t know there was a game? Don’t worry, most people go through life thinking the same thing. Fortunately, you made the right choice and signed up to Finish Strong! Not only does that prove you are smart, but also that you’re willing to be in the arena instead of sitting in the stands. So let’s get to this week’s game:
- Choose one of the topics below, read the links, and send me your thoughts, ideas, and counterpoints by hitting reply to this email.
Everyone who does this will be recognized in next week’s newsletter and one lucky person will be featured as the Jet Pack of the Week. I’m not sure what that means, but I’ll figure it out before next Friday.
