Back in April, Forty Magazine hosted its first release event in Dallas, TX. As we kicked-off year two of our magazine, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. We spent the night celebrating the release of our fifth issue “Growing as a Professional” and made more than a few new friends.
We had a symbolic turnout of about 40 people. There was food, drinks, good music, and even better conversation. Our team shared their passion for young professionals with several new faces. Many guests had no idea our magazine was online and were eager to sign up and contribute. But the number one question of the night was “Why is your magazine called ‘Forty’?”
Our Magazine is About Working 40 Hours a Week
Forty Magazine is about the 40-hour work week most young professionals work. To make this clear to our readers, we added “Hours A Week” to our title logo, which you can see on Issues 1, 2, and 3. This subtitle reminded us of our magazine’s mission to cover all aspects of millennial work life.
By time Issue 4 came around, we quickly realized a quarterly magazine isn’t always the best way to reach millenials. As technology becomes a big part of our lives, we wanted to create something that was mobile and able to keep pace with the changing work environment. We expanded our magazine to include the website you see today and renamed ourselves “A Digital Resource for Young Professionals.” You’ll see this subtitle on all our issues and on our website.
As Forty Magazine: A Digital Resource for Young Professionals, we remain committed to millennial life, on and off the clock. Whether you’re working 40 hours a week, or clocking in 60, Forty Magazine is your one-stop shop for your career. Subscribe to our website today and follow us online @40Magazine.
