Hi there!

Here’s another microdose of the coolest things I discovered this week–written by me, Raad—CEO of LawTrades


1.An audiobook I’m listening to
Red Notice is an expose ofthe nature of large investment banking and what the Russian state has become two decades after the collapse of communism. Bill Browder’sstory of how he went from Russia’s largest foreign portfolio investor to a man expelled by Putin’s orders is a must-read.

2. A product I’m using ☀️
Laroche Posay
Fragrance-free, water resistant for 80 minutes, paraben-free, 60x award-winning. Formulated with powerful broad spectrum protection and free radical antioxidants, it’s a sunscreen that just works. 

3. An app I use for design feedback  ✍️
Dropbox Paper
It makes it easy to get and give better feedback. Annotations let you add comments to a specific part of an image, attributions show you who’s added what, and emojis help you strike the right tone. Feedback: now with more fun.

4. A podcast I learn from
Eric Schmidt — Lessons from a Trillion-Dollar Coach

5. An article I re-read 👓
Fuck You Startup World

6. A quote I’m pondering 🤔
“Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.” Thich Nhat Hanh


Have a mindful rest of the week.
