Cheat Codes for Creators, Makers & Doers - CMMN WLTH 065
Hello my friends,
“Stay on the bleeding edge of trends and study technology, design, and art — become really good at something.”
I’ve been spending some time sharpening the edges of CMMN WLTH and came back to the original manifesto I drafted back in January 2021.
It started with the quote above. As I tried to rewrite it as my own, it got convoluted, so I’ve decided I’m going to borrow it.
The aim of CMMN WLTH is to enlighten, educate and inspire. And as the name suggests, for us to learn together — to share and discuss ideas.
Don’t hesitate to get in touch by replying directly to this e-mail or send me a DM on Twitter.
