Hi <<First Name>>,

It's been a very long time since we talked. Quite honestly, the last six months have been a bit of a blur. I can't describe how much I'm learning, but boy this startup thing is hard.

Since the last email I've learnt to skip, code and cook a way better omelette (no joke, put the ingredients in near the end). Progression is also hotting up, with some good early customers. But with personal runways looking a bit more dicey, we really need to be focused on growth.

With that in mind I just put the finishing touches on a blog post entitled 'Lost, but making good time' in which Neil (my not so new co-founder) and I had a heart to heart and realised that I need to be focusing much more on sales. It's not a muscle I've used much, and it's going to be one of the tougher mountains to climb for me in the coming months.

So feel free to scroll down to that post as well as another recent post about finding Neil.

And if you want to make my job a bit easier, and think that Progression might be useful for your team, please do let me know. I'd be only too happy to grab a call or coffee with whoever looks after people at your company.

And if you know anyone good at sales, please do introduce us!
