The Possible Digest - 3rd Monthly Issue - April 2020

(this blog post is re-printed from a Possible Finance newsletter email from April 30)

Happy Frida...err...Thursday! It's Chang from Possible - the 3rd newsletter's the charm 🤞.

I have one request today. Open this Youtube link. Skip the ad. Tap to unmute (if applicable). Close your eyes. Listen. Breathe.

How did it make you feel? If you’re like me, maybe you felt silly initially. The music is cheerful - how audacious in these times! But then the world faded, and it was just the music and me. I was soothed. I was free. And I didn’t care that my wife gave me weird looks.

Spring sprung up on me. Suddenly, it’s almost over. Honestly, the days felt like weeks and the weeks felt like days. But I’ll tell you what: the half hour I spent listening to Vivaldi’s music, not responding to work messages (don’t tell Tony my boss 🤫), and writing to you - this was a moment for myself. Today is April 30th and we all deserve a moment.

PS. Please share a small business in need that is dear to you. Tell me their story and I’ll contact a few to try to help. We’ll also give the businesses a shoutout in the next email.

Happy Content

Michelle, our Trivia Master. Congratulations to Michelle for winning last month's trivia by responding with the correct answer in 3 minutes. We sent her flowers from Antique Rose Florist and a family dinner from Las Fuentes, a local restaurant she supports!

"Spring" in film. Since folks enjoyed our trivia last time, here's another one: How many movie and show soundtracks is Vivaldi's first concerti in? And which of those movies is your favorite? Me, I'm watching Tropic Thunder tonight.

36 of us cheering you on. I know - it's frustating when we don't respond to your help requests in time. Know that we're your biggest advocates. But there's just 36 of us. Please bear with us as we figure out how to serve everyone quickly. Our help center and new chatbot can answer some of the common questions.

Feedback of the Month

"Y’all updated the app and the new color scheme is just awful. I don’t know who would put orange on it but the old one looked way better. Can y’all change that back please?"

We appreciate the honesty. Keep it coming and help us improve our app...colors and everything.
