“I could either watch it happen or be a part of it.” - Elon Musk
Hello, hello! Welcome to week three of the chasing answers newsletter. Last week we had 13 subscribers, which was more than triple the amount we had the first week. Growing at that pace, I noted that we could catch Packy McCormick’s 110,000 subscriber base in just nine weeks (yes, that is accurate, check the math.)
Sooooo, it turns out it’s not that easy to keep tripling subscribers. This week’s new total - 14. 😒
C’mon, guys, these newsletters aren’t going to read themselves. If you know someone who might be interested in reading……..actually, scratch that…….if you just know someone, I recommend sharing the wonderful insights and witty humor on display here. Just click below to help grow our little chasing answers community.
So, Elon Musk has earned the distinction of being the first person mentioned in two chasing answers essays. He appeared in last week’s essay and is back this week with a more featured role.
I didn’t plan on writing about social media for the third week, but after the events that transpired with Elon and Twitter, I couldn’t resist. This week, we’ll specifically be talking about Twitter and the fact that Elon is now the company's largest shareholder. Since we’re still discussing social media, I have decided to highlight some organizations that help with cyberbullying, whether it be through education, research, support, or other methods.
End To Cyber Bullying Organization - ETCB raises awareness and provides information and education on cyberbullying. Visit their website to make a donation or if you live in the New York City area, reach out to them to volunteer.
Stomp Out Bullying - This organization provides education through programs in schools, public service announcements, and social media campaigns. If you or someone you know needs help, visit their website. Also, visit the site if you are interested in making a donation or becoming a corporate partner.
The Cybersmile Foundation - This foundation has offices located worldwide and provides education, conducts research, and offers support to those affected by cyberbullying. If you would like to donate or if you or anyone you know needs help with cyberbullying, visit their website.
If you know of other organizations that help with this cause, please feel free to mention them in the comments below. Or, if there is a company or organization you think deserves its own essay, please let me know.
Now, here is the link to the latest chasing answers essay, Elon Goes Shopping.

Great essay, Randy! You're doing an awesome job with this newsletter! By the way, I really love how you've included orgs to donate to in this one and #2. That's super thoughtful of you.
Another good one Randy! Apart from the topic at hand, I love the tone of your writing
"Sooooo, it turns out it’s not that easy to keep tripling subscribers. This week’s new total - 14" -> isn't that the truth 😂
Keep em coming!
