The Round-up Volume 4: An Interview with Rhove's CEO

"You can't control everything in your life, but you can make yourself better than you were yesterday."

April 8, 2020


Welcome to The Round-Up, a newsletter for renters, homeowners, and everyone in between.

From crowded virtual happy hours, to Netflix binges driving spouses crazy, to the birth of digital apartment amenities, the world is responding in unexpected ways to help us find the silver lining in social distancing. Although we’re experiencing a historical event in real-time, let’s take a moment to remember we’re in this together and we can still be the authors of our own stories!

Lean in to your daily habits and make social distancing a time of positive self reflection, intention, and improvement. Join us in taking the #AtHomeChallenge to cultivate a positive daily habit and inspire your community to join you in doing so. Be among the first 50 to take the challenge and win a prize pack supporting local businesses including a free meal at Hot Chicken Takeover, a free scoop of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, a free drink at Roosevelt Coffeehouse, a Pelotonia arrow magnet, and a custom t-shirt from Homage!
