Dear <handwritten name>,

In the spirit of reflection and posterity, (and the realization that I’ve not written my Christmas letter ever), I’ve decided to share my Christmas letter.

This is it, 10 highlights from 2021.


  1. After 15 years, I’m still happily married, and the kids are a constant source of amusement.
  2. Despite having arthritis and corona, I’m relatively healthy and active most days.
  3. We bought a house to share with our friends in Ukee, and lived there for the summer.
  4. I got to spend a lot of time at the beach, swimming and surfing, and in the mountains skiing.
  5. I started to learn to fly, and although it’s harder than I thought, it’s good to be challenged.


  1. We’ve got 10 sites in our portfolio, with content that helps thousands of people succeed in work everyday.
  2. We smashed our 2030 BHAG for revenue, and tripled top line revenue to $10m+ .
  3. We added more than 20 people to the team.
  4. We were able to share 10% of profits with the team.
  5. We’ve been able to give away more than 4% of our profits.

In 2022 I’m going to try to have more: sleep, fun, and exercise.

Happy new year!

Love Ben
