Hope you're having a great week. Here are a few things I've been reading, writing and pondering lately. Enjoy!
1. The $100k Club
We're doing a new content series over at Superpath called The $100k Club. It features interviews content folks making six figures. We launched the first one this week and will have 1-2 week for the next month or so.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to join the $100k club?
Don't think of yourself as just a content marketer. You're more than your role. Zoom out. Consider all the areas of a business where you can be valuable: Marketing. Sales. Support. Retention. As the business needs change, where can you slide in to help?
2. What are the best marketing books?
I asked the content career growth Slack community and they responded. So many good recommendations.
3. Custom Avatars for a Cause
This is really cool. A professional artist creates an avatar and you pick the charity. I just ordered one.
4. Tweet of the Week
