July 2022: An Opportunity to Refresh

Dear friends,


As we continue through the long summer days, we are taking an opportunity to practice what we preach about the importance of self-care and taking our foot off the pedal. With that in mind, we are taking a break from publishing a full newsletter greeting this month, but we will still be sharing important upstream news and activities, including some company news we are very excited about. Our regular newsletter greeting will be back in August, ready with fresh insights and motivation to help you move upstream.


Until then, we hope you also get a chance to take a break, reflect, spend some time with your loved ones, and practice self-care.



With gratitude,
