Today is my last day as a Data Scientist...

At 5pm I'll become a full time solo startup founder ๐Ÿคฏ

So excited! But also...

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! ๐Ÿ˜…
Outsourcing my newsletter advert sales process

- He messaged me
- He offered to work for 50/50 commission

Bad idea...?

Will see how this plays out ๐Ÿ˜…

Trying to find space to squeeze the company logos in...

Too cluttered?

Might have just got shadow banned on LinkedIn lol

Changing the blog to 2 columns to allow space for more internal linking

e.g. "related articles"

Should hopefully give a small SEO boost ๐Ÿคž

I've got a Zoom call with a potential customer at midnight tonight

The hustle is real.

After 1.5 years of avoiding shiny objects...

I've given in ๐Ÿ˜…

I've been working on new project / startup over the last few days ๐Ÿ™Š

Here's the plan to go live:

#buildinpublic
"Isn't a 4 day week just 4x10 hour days?"

"Isn't a 4 day week less pay?"

There's a lot of confusion around the 4 day work week...

So I'm trying to be as clear as possible ๐Ÿ˜‡

#buildinpublic
SEO keyword identified ๐ŸŽฏ

โœ… URL structure
โœ… H1 tag
โœ… Title
โœ… Relevant content

Surely I'm in with a chance ๐Ÿ˜…

p.s. this is programatic SEO

So I should really say *keywords* identified ๐Ÿ˜‡
