As I create more content, I feel like it’s easier for certain things to get buried or forgotten. Likewise, I share content across this website, an email newsletter, and YouTube, so it can be hard to get a full picture of all the things I’m putting out into the world.

My Productivity

I’ve also published FinOps content sharing what I’ve learned. Here are my favorites:

I’m in the process of writing a book called FinOps for Startups and I’m documenting the entire book research process in an effort to Learn in Public. You can subscribe to follow along.
