Thanks for checking out the Weekly Learning Roundup. These bite-sized, weekly posts are designed to give you a quick hit of interesting learnings and articles I came across this week.

This week’s roundup has a ton of great resources for folks working in the startup world. If you haven’t subscribed to First Round Review (which is where most of the links come from), I highly recommend it. Tons of practical advice and experiences shared by people who’ve been there and done that with startups.

Hope you all have a great week. See you next week!


A quote that’s resonating with me –

Don’t let the force of an impression when it first hit you knock you off your feet; just say to it: Hold on a moment; let me see who you are and what you represent. Let me put you to the test.

Service that I’m finding valuable –

Mama Earth Organics

Mama Earth is a Toronto-based organic produce delivery service. I’ve been using Mama Earth for over a year now and I’ve really appreciated the service. Every week, I get a basket of organic, most local produce delivered right to my doorstep. It saves me time and mental hassle from having to grab produce every week.

Mama Earth delivers mostly to the Greater Toronto Area. If you live in an urban or suburban area, there should be a service like this available. Just search “organic produce delivery” into the Google and you can see what’s available in your area.

Audio that I’m enjoying –

For those of you looking to improve your body strength, this is an episode worth listening to from The Tim Ferriss Show.

It’s a marriage of all four elements that help you live a strong and healthy life. This isn’t a show just for folks looking to hit the weights at the gym – it’s about how you need to build strength to ensure you maximize your body’s capabilities. Enjoy!
