Shared some thoughts with Quibb: “Founders who ask for generic ‘intros to investors’ aren’t ready to raise money,” says Kate Kendall. She’s the founder and CEO of the CloudPeeps, a freelance marketplace for marketing, content and community professionals. “It shows they haven’t really thought about it and done the research to know who would be interested.

“People think of investors as these broad categories of individuals,” she goes on, “but each investor has such a niche approach, and after digging into it you can see what markets they like, what they focus on, how fast they can act. Eventually you know so much about the investor community that you save time because you don’t pitch all the investors.”

"With all this in mind, we’ve formalised our gratitude practice at CloudPeeps via ‘The Daily Gratitude’ – a verbal or written note of thanks we share at the end of the day. While our standup meetings in the morning talk about achievements, tasks and blockers, mostly related to work, it’s our gratitude sessions that reflect back on our progress and joy."

"I think of the last year and a half I’ve spent in New York as professional finishing school. If there’s anywhere on this planet where people are stupendously busy, it’s this place. It definitely took me a few months to settle into the rhythm. Combine this experience with recently fundraising, and I now feel incredible mindful of everyone’s time. So, without ado, I wanted to share 10 tips on how to win at professional time etiquette:"

"I’ve convinced, regardless of what industry you are in, to succeed in business long term — you need a community. If you don’t want to do what it takes to do that on your own, you should hire someone to do it. But, where can you find a trusted community builder? CloudPeeps."

"I’d love to share something with you: I had a personal brand and I hated it. Personal brands are incredibly limiting. They put you in a box that has defined values and then you continue to attract people and things to that box. This noise drowns out your deeper wants and needs. Personal brands grow exponentially and then you end up as a person known for being known, not for what you contribute."

New post by Sarah Judd Welch: "These examples show that community really can have a significant (and positive) impact on your bottom line, whether it’s through retention, increased engagement, referrals, or a revenue stream built around fulfilling the needs of an existing community."
