From the curator👨‍💻

Yo, Nic here 

It only took 6 months, but the newsletter has now surpassed 1000 subscribers! Thanks to everyone for your continued support, it's been a ride and a half 😘

To the 137 new subscribers this week, welcome to issue #23 of The Slice. If you missed last week's issue, you can read here  👈 

This week I read this cool manifesto. It centers around  the idea of making a tiny little business and how to do it. The idea is,

1. Attract a tiny pocket of people.
2. Create work that you are proud of that solves a problem for them.
3. Turn this small pocket of people into superfans.

BOOM, a tiny little business!

Here is an illustration to wrap your head the concept. 
Just a little reminder that I'm still running the promotion on NewsletterOS, which is a comprehensive Notion dashboard that helps you curate, write & grow your newsletter. All slice subscribers get a nice little discount too! 

Now for this week's issue. I hope you enjoy😘

Blog posts/Articles 📚

There is a lot of crap on the internet, so I rifle through it and pick out a gem or two that I found this week.
Do the real thing.
"Consider one person who wrote to me saying she turned down a job working in French. She didn’t feel her French was good enough yet. So instead, she planned to listen to podcasts at home every day until she was ready. You know what would have helped her get good at French? Working at the job in French." Read more
