Another extraordinary email newsletter example — this one from The Smithsonian — is featured in this week’s What’s in my Inbox. And, if you’re looking to revamp your enews (I am!), we’ve got a super design resource you should not miss, courtesy of Michelle Brinson. Thanks Michelle!

Grow Report reader Emily Clarke sent in this gem: Richard runs 5k!

Hope or Fear? Which Powerful Emotion Should You Use? Another must-read straight from Mary Cahalane.

It Starts With You. It really does. New from the Veritus Group.
