Hope you're having a great week. Here are a few things I've been reading, writing and pondering lately. Enjoy!
Want a Free Video Script….
…from the folks who create videos for Uber, Square and Salesforce?
Vidico makes high-quality, affordable videos to explain your product and showcase your brand. If you want to see what it’s all about, they will write a video script for you—for free.

This is short, sweet and insightful.
Good ideas are easy to write, bad ideas are hard. Difficulty is a quality signal, and writer’s block usually indicates more about your ideas than your writing.
I thought this article was really interesting and have found myself thinking a lot about it as tweak Superpath to help it grow. Nathan Baschez's newsletter, where this post comes from, is worth checking out.
Businesses plateau for two reasons:
1. Their strategy is wrong (Wrong Strategy Syndrome)
2. They fail to execute any strategy at all (Fuzzy Strategy Syndrome)
Unfortunately, these two separate problems have identical symptoms (stagnant growth), but opposite cures.
3. Who's hiring?
Here are a few friends hiring marketing folks:
- Chameleon, a user onboarding app, is looking content marketing manager. The company is lean, remote, transparent and profitable.
- ActiveCampaign is looking for a senior manager of editorial. It's a fast-growing SaaS app that helps SMBs grow their companies. It includes a CRM, an email marketing tool, and support software.
- Scribewise, a Philadelphia-based content marketing agency, is hiring a B2B content marketer. Founder John Miller is big on culture—and some of his team is part of Superpath Pro. 😀
