This week’s newsletter includes some firsts. For the first time, there’s an Ask Me Anything section near the end for public responses to reader questions. Please continue to send questions in.

Relatedly, in another first, this newsletter contains audio — make sure to press play to hear Edmund’s take, in his own voice, on getting deals done.
If you’re new, welcome 🙌🏽 — you’ll receive a weekly digest like this on Mondays usually and, sometimes (but not always), an original essay/article on Saturdays. For past essays and digests, visit
