Two Personal Announcements 🚨

1. Get on a Zoom call with me 👇

Here’s how we’ll do it.

  1. Click on this link, Pick a time, fill up the questions and schedule yourself.

  2. I will pick one person per day (That means you got a 33% chance)


2. I’m moving my newsletter day 🙌

From Friday to Wednesday.

You will receive my newsletter on Wednesday rather than on Friday.

I realised there are too many people sending newsletters on Friday and plus I’m on a 4 day work week schedule.

Even though the open rate is around 40-50% (which is great) but I like to experiment.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be used to learn and play more.

See you next Wednesday 🚀
