5-Whats Fridays! (54th Edition) Billion Dollar Deck, Billion Dollar Loss!#5WFs(54th)

1. What I’m inspired by: The feedback from our 1year anniversary post! Thanks everyone! I was particularly elated to see that our “premium content” per Sharon Okeke, ACCA had inspired others to birth new writing. Congratulations Faith Ogedengbe who sent me a link to her “10 Things This Week” which I found really interesting, cool, and subtly evocative of the beautiful, honest writing of the blogspot era. Take a look here: https://bit.ly/38maaIF

2. What I’m reading: “5 Books My CEO Read to go from $0 to $30million”. Read here: https://bit.ly/3MjACkM

3. What I’m excited about: 2 things! i.) Textio. Call it a Grammarly for business writing. This augmented writing software ensures your corporate communications is on-brand, on-objective and delivers! A gender inclusive email, employer branding brochure, culture change policy document? Whatever. Textio fits your language for purpose. Learn more here: https://textio.com/

ii.) Elon Musk’ Twitter pitch deck; slash dependence on ads., 5x revenue to >$26b by 2028 and more! https://bit.ly/3Me4DlP Fasten your seatbelts and prepare for takeoff, the blue bird is finally going to the moon…!

4. What I did: Moved around a bit to get things done! Are you one of us? Those who move from kitchen table to living room to… anywhere that enables us achieve specific work objectives. This time I upped and left, then returned with some hitherto lingering to-dos tucked under my belt. Feeling stuck? Perhaps what you need is to get away, get it done and then get back. Rooting for you. Good luck!

5. What’s up: Peloton selling off 20% of its stake! The Peloton story is one for the books. See rise and fall here: https://bit.ly/3LdYpRT . A case of making permanent (and rapid) business decisions on temporary high market demand, this time, with billion dollar repercussions; factories, product lines, employees and now, a minority stake divestment.

Investors are counting on big names like Apple and Amazon to buy this dip. To be or not to be? We’ll let them decide. You, on the other hand, please have a great weekend.

Enjoy!

Every Friday-ish, I do a quick round up of 5 things; What I’m Inspired by, What I’m Reading, What I’m Excited About, What I Did and What’s Up! These are my takes on 5 significant, sublime and sometimes silly stuff! Follow me on Medium so you don’t miss this! Feedback’s great so don’t forget to clap, like, comment and share with others. Again…enjoy! #5WhatsFridays
