Welcome to my tiny corner of the Internet.👋

I’m Lesley. I spend most of my time working on Newsletter Glue and looking for delicious things to eat (like 🍕). I’m also on Twitter a lot.

My favourite pizza toppings are tomato sauce, mozzarella, anchovies and basil.

  • I parted ways with a big client this week… Now, what’s next?

    Newsletter #7 It happens. Things in the company had been stuck for awhile, and I wasn’t in an area of the organisation that could help unstick it. As a result, there wasn’t much work for me to do, and it became time to move on.  This past year has been intense, and that’s made me a little lax on the […]

  • Riding my new onewheel

    Newsletter #6 It’s official, I’ve joined the illustrious ranks of Deliveroo riders, techno-blasting ah bengs and trinket-hoarding uncles. With my recent Onewheel Pint purchase, I’ve now become a self-described Pavement Pest, also know in long form as: Pesky People Using An Electronic Vehicle On The Pavement. The Onewheel Pint falls within the genre of electronic skateboards. You stand perpendicular […]

  • I asked the people I work with 6 questions about value

    Newsletter #5 Doing valuable work is a big thing for me. I hate doing work for the sake of it, and “because it pays the bills” or “because my boss asked me to” have never been good enough reasons for me. I wanted to similarly align everyone I work with around the idea of value. So, […]

  • Resetting work boundaries

    Newsletter #4 I’ve been working 12-hour days since the start of the year and I’m exhausted. (This isn’t a humble brag about my hustle. I honestly think it’s more gangster to boast about how little I work, than how much.) Because I had less work last year, I had more time to devote to self improvement and implemented […]

  • I’m selling my backpack on Carousell for $0.

    Newsletter #3 I bought a new backpack last week, and wanted to get rid of my old one. I didn’t want to dump it as it still has some years of use left in it. Instead, I decided to give it away, and listed it on Carousell for $0.  I knew giving away a 3 year […]

  • My toilet kept choking. I found out why.

    Newsletter #2 In the past year, my toilet’s gotten choked every few months. At first I felt guilty. I thought it was my fault, maybe something fell in ages ago? I dunno! 🤷🏻‍♀️ Plumber #1 came to the rescue about 3 months ago. He managed to unclog it using pressure, but he couldn’t find the source of […]

So if any ideas pop into your head about how I can improve, please feel free to share them. Alright, let’s go! Why […]

  • Newsletter #0

    Welcome to newsletter #0. This is my very first newsletter, but I’m excited to write more. Newsletters are usually emails delivered to your inbox, but I chose to write this first one as a blog post. This way, you can get a taste for my newsletter before you subscribe. Hence, Newsletter #0! Oh yeah, I […]

  • There are no unselfish reasons to have a baby.

    This past week, I visited two babies. Both mothers are old friends of mine, so it’s slightly surreal yet wonderful that they both have children now. Unsurprisingly, I was asked both times if I planned on having babies myself. Twice, I found it difficult to collect my thoughts and form a coherent answer. And so, […]

  • Some days are lazy days, and that’s okay.

    As the business owner of a fledgling business, there’s always a soul-crushing, existential-crisis-inducing amount of work to do. Because of this, many business owners feel a tremendous amount of guilt and pressure to work incredibly hard, non-stop. I don’t believe in this. Today is a Thursday. I didn’t do much work at all, and I […]
