Mentoring for Small Bets
It’s been a while! I have been deeply immersed in mentoring for the Portfolio of Small Bets community along with, , and .
If you want a small taste of what the sessions are about, here’s a Twitter thread with a “super speed run” Loom recording:

Insider Look at the Book Publishing Industry
I had a wonderful conversation with my friend Jermey (incidentally, we met through Small Bets!) We talked about what it’s REALLY like to go through the traditional publishing process, and options for authors who want to consider self-publishing vs traditional publishing (turns out, there’s lots of hidden options in between these two choices!)
Jermey Matthews is a seasoned book publishing strategist and entrepreneur, having spent 15+ years reviewing and publishing award-winning books, interviewing and recruiting high-profile authors, and launching new publishing and digital content brands. A former research scientist and senior acquisitions editor for the MIT Press, he now works with author services businesses (hybrid publishers, premium book coaches and editors) that serve professionals writing nonfiction books.

Graduated from Buddhist Chaplaincy Program
Lastly, my buddies and I have graduated from the Sati Center Chaplaincy program! I’ve been taking a bit of time to rejuvenate so this newsletter has been coming at a slower, more manageable pace. 🙏 I had written 12 multi-page essays as part of the course requirement, so my writing brain is a bit fried 😅.
I’m thankful for all of you because of the immense support you have provided me through this period of spiritual development. All of it—from reading this newsletter, to the poor souls who get random messages from me at all times of the day.
