Guest contributors, what do we expect from you?
If you’re considering submitting a guest post, please keep these requirements in mind:
Your post must be between 600 to 1,200 words.

We want content that gives our readers new ideas – and shows them how to put those ideas into practice. The focus should be on education and not pushing a product or service.
Editing, spelling, grammar
We reserve the right to edit all submitted content, but the cleaner a submitted draft, the better.
