At the end of January, we emailed out a survey to our nearly 10,000 email subscribers to help us gauge who’s reading our newsletter, the types of content our subscribers want to see, and more. We’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who took the time to respond! 

We received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback and we’re taking the time to go through each response to make sure we’re addressing these requests and incorporating them into our upcoming newsletters. Stay tuned to future email correspondence, which will feature more of the types of content that are most important to our subscribers.
