Wells Street is now one month old, and I’m having a blast writing about money and business with a little snark and a lot of questions. What an opportunity!
I want to send a special thanks to my friend, Cherie Phoenix, whose copy editing skills have been essential. She has saved me from repeatedly making a fool of myself grammatically. I’m still a fool, but at least I know the difference now between an “en dash” and an “em dash.”
Thanks to all of you for subscribing, and to those who’ve commented here or sent me emails with feedback.
Some of the feedback has been extremely helpful (“Dumb and Dumber is too long, cut out some of the Dumberererers,” “I hear your voice in your writing, why not include a video of you reading your own story?”).
I’m starting to incorporate these ideas.
I’d love more feedback.
So please let me know: which columns do you like best?
What kind of business news would you like more of?
Tell me in the comments or email email@example.com.
Upcoming stories include (yes, more “em dashes!”):
— With so many job openings, who’s still not going back to work? We hear a lot about these people. I actually talk to them.
— Pretty much anybody can be a FINRA arbitrator who judges your case against a stockbroker or financial advisor, and arbitrators don’t have to follow the law.
— A guy who invented dog poop DNA kits for condos to bust owners who don‘t pick up after their pets is now opening a Hobbit-style enchanted village resort near Dollywood (you can‘t make this stuff up).
I have a million ideas. Please stay in touch and let me know what’s working in the newsletter, and what isn’t.
If you could also spread the word to one other person, that would be wonderful. Word of mouth is the best advertising.
I’m off to watch my daughter get married this weekend! Pray for me...
Actually, pray for her. For both families.
I’ll be back here on Wells Street next week with another Dumb and Dumber, but with fewer Dumberererererererererers.
