READING

Exec Sum | Litquidity

Litquidity takes a deep dive on Beehiiv because: (1) Exec Sum is written on the company's platform (and there’s nothing more meta than writing about a newsletter platform on that newsletter platform), and (2) it's one of several Litquidity Capital portfolio companies (and a Social Leverage portfolio company as well). Litquidity views it as a public investment memo as to why he invested.

LISTENING

Panic with Friends | Howard Lindzon

Take a trip in the wayback machine and climb aboard a rocketship as Paul and Howard discuss building a successful brand.

WATCHING

Halftime Report | CNBC

The numbers are staggering. $3 million in trailing 12-month revenues in 2018 to $300 million today. They did it by obsessing over making the very best products for men, an obsession that carries on to their million active members in their subscription program. Manscaped has gone beyond the groin by earning their customers permission to take care of them from head to toe. And quite profitably as well.
