Building a community, beating procrastination, getting eyeballs on your content, and more.

Bonus: an exciting app that helps you take your personal and professional life to the next level.

Hello friend,

Welcome to Be Your Best Friend with Anangsha, the weekly newsletter that’s constantly seeking out ways to network, build connections, and enrich its life.

For taking your personal and professional life to the next step, no one can deny the transformative power of a community. My writing on Medium improved exponentially and I managed to double my income just by building a community of like-minded writers with similar goals.

They helped me edit my articles, and while editing their writing, I learned so much about how to make mine better. It’s always a win-win situation and an incredible learning experience.

The world wasn’t kidding when it said, “Your network is your net worth.”

This brings me to introduce…

An exciting app I recently came across

Plain Sight is a social platform for you to make connections wherever you go, both online and in person.

Making great connections shouldn’t be left up to chance or introductions. Plain Sight curates connections between like-minded people based on their skills and interests, so there are no more missed opportunities to connect with the type of people you’re looking to meet.
