It takes momentum to make momentum
All of us need a little inspiration sometimes. 

From opening a new Slack channel to kicking off a new community program, sometimes we all need a little nudge to go from blank page --> bodacious plan of action. That's why we have each other. It's because of inspo from you that we opened our new #community-and-gtm channel—conversations are just getting started, so come on in and exchange ideas about the synergies and challenges of intersecting community and go-to-market work.

It takes momentum to make momentum, so please reach out to a community leader near you (like me 👋) if you need some or have some to share.

With great affection, 
Rebecca and all the Roomies
