Hey friends,

Can you believe that we’re 5 months into 2024 already?! Time truly does fly when you’re doing what you love. For those wondering, I’m now back in NYC from my short trip to Accra, Ghana. My trip was well worth the wait, after moving to the US almost 6 years ago :)

As usual, this past month at Salley has been nothing short of amazing. The energy and excitement around what we’re building has been accelerating. It’s just great to see smiles on peoples’ faces when they learn more about Salley’s vision to help them reach their full career potential.

Without further ado, let’s get into what happened over the last month and what to look forward to:
