In this 8th issue of SyncWin Weekly Digest, I have brought some crucial updates regarding our Black Friday Plans, Notion Alternative by Microsoft, WordPress Performance Improvement, a more technical builder than Oxygen, and some unbelievable Lifetime Deals.

๐Ÿ˜ Quote of the Week

โ€œWhat do you need to start a business? Three simple things: know your product better than anyone, know your customer, and have a burning desire to succeed.โ€

โ€” Dave Thomas, Founder of Wendyโ€™s

๐Ÿ’ญ Wisdom of the Week

Pay for the Useful Resources: You should never hesitate to pay for the useful resources (tools, services, and education) that can help you grow your business because they're not expenses but investments that will eventually lead you to success.

The cost of using these resources is insignificant when compared to the benefit that you get from them.

But how can you be sure that the tools and services you're buying are worth it? How can you know if the course or training program you're considering is truly valuable and worth your time and money?

The answer is simple: Test everything before you spend your hard-earned money on it.

Microsoft Loop, A Notion Alternative: Microsoft Loop is a new app that combines a powerful and flexible canvas with portable components that move freely and stay in sync across applications.
