Dear POWERnews subscriber,

You may have noticed a new e-letter with the subject line “Best of POWER…” in your inbox a couple of weeks ago and again today. This new offering is our attempt to keep you abreast of some of the latest and greatest content that we’ve been publishing.

We intend to send this new e-letter on Mondays twice a month. It will feature the most-read stories on our website, not only from our daily news posts, but also from our monthly magazine. We know that you’re busy and don’t always find time to peruse our website. We believe this e-letter will give you a chance to see what other subscribers have been engaging with, so you can dig deeper into what resonates with you. We hope you find this useful, and as always, we welcome your feedback on everything related to our brand.
