I'm excited for our first guest

Two short things this week:

First, The Sweet Setup launched a new course last week called Simple Habits , and we’re doing a giveaway ! And the easy part is if you’re seeing this email, you’re already entered to win. On June 15th we’ll pick a winner and announce later that week.

If you need some help with building habits, you can find the course here.

Speaking of The Sweet Setup, the second announcement of the week is our very first guest on Remotely Working: Shawn Blanc

I’ve followed Shawn’s work for the better part of a decade, so it was an honor to interview him about his company Blanc Media, why they work remotely, and the unique rhythm and cadence they’ve set for that work. That podcast drops Monday, June 1st.
