So long 2020! - dayone, Issue #11
By Marc Kermisch • Issue #11 • View online
In December of 2019, I decided I was going to commit to writing an article a month on a topic I thought others in my network would enjoy. I published on LinkedIn, Medium, my own website, and via this newsletter. I achieved 83% of my goal and learned a lot over the year. Mainly what seemed to resonate with you, my readers, and what platforms were most successful in reaching others. What follows is a summary of the year and the stats of my articles and newsletters.

My Favorite Books of 2020
My favorite business book that I read in all of 2020 was Andy Grove’s High Output Management. The hardest read I had was a social justice book called The New Jim Crow, by Michelle Alexander. My favorite fiction book was the New Earth Series by Mathew Mather.
So long 2020
This year had been challenging for all of us and I sincerely hope that you have a safe, happy, and healthy new year. I found this video and felt it captured the sentiment of 2020 better than I could have.
