Hi, I’m Jay Clouse.
I want to help you grow faster.

Every day, I share the lessons learned starting a company.

In April 2017, I left my comfortable job to start my own company. By following along on my journey in real time, you can someday better navigate your own.

Every day I share the knowledge, ideas, and insight that I’m gaining for you to apply directly to your own work. (Here’s an example).

Sometimes, I’ll even share opportunities to join in group projects or experiments through this newsletter – I’m a bit of a wildcard. In any case, I will:

  1. Accelerate your path to self discovery and understanding
  2. Inspire you to make active steps towards your goals and desires
  3. Provide you with the tools to manage your time and reach those goals
