Happy birthday, Polina! Congrats on 7 years of writing. Any advice for those who are just getting started?

thank you so much!! I would say "make sure you plan for the unexpected" in order to stay consistent week after week. So have a few newsletters in the bank that you can send at the drop of a hat in case there's an emergency/last-minute thing you need to tend to. Doesn't have to be perfect, just consistent

I've read your book and maybe half (?) of all your posts on this site. This is my favorite thing you've written.

Happy Birthday Polina. But I thought for sure you were going to share 32 lessons. So how about 22 more while you’re blowing out the candles 🎂

Wise words from Colette. Most humans need the reminder to get started before we feel ready. Happy birthday Polina!

After 7 years, I’d love to see what happens if you took a week off writing and reflected on whether anything shifts, changes, is completely the same.

Happy birthday! I turn 24 in 5 days and I hope that the work I’m putting in today will result in a similar magnitude of success as you when I’m 32. You’re an inspiration 🚀

Wishing you a much greater magnitude!! Keep going. I loved my mid-20s, and it was probably the greatest learning stretch of my life so far!

Happy Birthday! Solid post. This quote specifically resonated with me and is sooo true.

Aldous Huxley: “Man has an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted.”

Thanks for posting!

Best regards,

Dustin
