Lenny’s Newsletter—The #1 business newsletter on Substack
Every week, I humbly tackle reader questions about product, growth, career growth, and anything else that’s stressing you out at the office. Paid subscribers get the weekly post, and an invite to a subscriber-only Slack community (10k+ members strong!). Non-paid subscribers get one free monthly post.

✍️ Posting schedule
Paid subscribers receive a brand new post every Tuesday morning (Pacific time), plus a Community Wisdom post (summarizing the best conversations in the Slack community) every Friday morning. Unpaid subscribers receive roughly one email a month.
As a paid subscriber, you also get an invite to a subscriber-only Slack community, access to a private hand-curated directory of resources, discounts, product coaches, and recruiters, and more. All for $150 per year.
Many readers expense the newsletter out of their learning and development budget. Here’s an email you can send your manager.
PTO policy: Each year, I take four weeks off. During those weeks, you may receive no new posts. The time off is important in helping me me recharge and write better stuff the rest of the year ✨
