Why you’re getting this: I'm Jakob Greenfeld. I run Sales.co and this is my personal newsletter. I send this every month or so to interesting people I’ve connected with and friends I want to keep in touch with. You can unsubscribe at any time, and I won't be mad. I won't even be notified!
Ditching ClickUp. Even after months of using it I still hate ClickUp from the bottom of my heart. It’s slow, buggy, and confusing as hell.
The goal of a task management tool is to make it easy to stay on top of things. But ClickUp makes this impossible as information is spread out all over the place.
Pretty sure the only people liking ClickUp are the ones selling ClickUp consulting services.
We’re now all-in on Airtable. All data, all tasks live in one giant Airtable Base. No more hunting down automation and information in dozens of different places. Task creation is triggered directly by data. Interfaces pull in data, tasks, and information. Fells like a huge unlock.
Elon book. Started reading the Elon Musk biography by Walter Isaacson. It’s a bit boring imo. Mostly celeb gossip and not much on how Elon operates. The only really interesting bit was the one about “The Algorithm”.
Agency Math. Wrote about the mathematical reason why agencies get stuck at $50k MRR. Definitely something I did not properly consider when we launched our agency.
But the cool thing is that once you understand the math, you immediately understand what needs to get done to break through the plateau.
Oyster Hunting. I spent the last weekend collecting wild oysters here in Denmark. Really fun and much easier than I thought. Only took us 20 minutes to find more than enough.
There’s always something magical about eating stuff you hunted/collected yourself. Interestingly, the locals in the area do not really care about oysters. Restaurants don’t have them on the menu, supermarkets do not sell any.
I live an hour's drive away and here they are sold for $2.5 a piece in supermarkets and $4 a piece in restaurants.
