This actually happened.
Occasionally my girlfriend and I spend a day together, working on our own businesses whilst sitting in the same room. With laptops. I normally schedule posts to be shared later on social media (A.K.A. Kicking Myself In The Head Day).
On this particular day I logged in to Mailchimp; one week after sending out my first newsletter from the site. I noticed that I'd gained two new subscribers.
My excitement was short-lived...
We opened a bottle of wine anyway.
