Couldn't recommend this enough. If you're writing for the internet or writing in general, this is the community you never knew you needed.

Join @beondeck for its 3Cs formula —> Community + Character + Culture

All of that is very practical, generosity of its members is real, serendipity is digital, connections are meaningful and all friendships are very humane!

This is best ‘Give First’ culture on the internet.

It's too good to be true, but it's true.

2021 will be the year where On Deck becomes known to all new entrepreneurs.

Education is ripe for transformation. @beondeck model will be the standard for experiential and community based learning. I would choose it over a traditional MBA.
