A Timeless Skill That's More Relevant Than Ever

Great founders write because...

Writing is your primary means of communication.
With remote teams, international partners, and a global customer base, we're spending less time in the same room with the people we work with. Written communication skills have never been more valuable.

Your competition is fierce and well-spoken.
Traditional barriers to entry are gone. You aren't just competing for wallet share, but also mind share. Ideas are just as important as products and services.

Adaptability is the #1 trait of successful founders.
The world is changing faster than ever. Writing is the ultimate personal development tool to improve your strategy, learn new skills, and become your best self.

Writing is the master key that unlocks everything else.
Great founders write to learn from the past, lead in the present, and create the future.

Great Founders Write will give you the principles and practical exercises for better writing in your career and life.
