Thousands of marketers are graduating from typical email platforms or overhyped marketing automation tools and making more money with Drip. Book a 1-on-1 tour with one of Drip's in-house nerds, and see why so many are graduating.
The best thing I can recommend this week is a book, not an article. I just finished up Endurance and couldn’t put it down. I actually binged so hard that I strained a muscle in my neck and couldn’t turn my head to the right for two days. I’m getting old (but it was worth it).

The “Masters in Business” podcast with Barry Ritholtz is really, really good. This episode is a must-listen. Barry’s daily newsletter is also a good read.
