About Friday Forward

Friday Forward started as a note to my Acceleration Partners team each Friday morning. The goal was to inspire our employees to want to achieve more in all aspects of their lives, push beyond their limits and realize their potential.

Soon, employees were sharing the notes with colleagues, friends and family outside the company, who asked to join the list. I opened the newsletter up to the public and the rest was history.
