Good morning,

Happy Tuesday! The newsletter took a break for the July 4th holiday in the US yesterday, but will be back on the regularly scheduled programming next week.

Same bat time, same bat channel. ๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿง”๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Basically me last week minus the mask, muscles, and sweet robe.

I hope you all got some time to rest this weekend whether from a slowing deal market or just taking a vacation.
