A Little Bit of Everything

Newsletters on learning, building, growing, and the future. Right in that order.

May 9, 2022

Hello and Good Monday ๐Ÿณ

Today’s issue has a little bit of everything. An educational newsletter on web3, high-quality curation for those building an audience, lessons learned while growing an e-commerce store, and one focused entirely on the future. Best of all? You can subscribe to all of them for free.

P.S. I decided to add ‘tags’ for each newsletter to highlight the topics it covers and help you navigate the newsletter. Let me know if it’s helpful ๐Ÿ‘ or not really ๐Ÿ‘Ž ?

โšก Spotlight

๐Ÿ‘พ Creator Economy

While I made my first steps in web3 I got exposed to Peter Yang’s wisdom. I read his tweets, I followed him, I subscribed to his newsletter, and even joined the discord he’s created with other like-minded people. He’s an educator at heart and you can feel it while reading his thoughts.

The newsletter Peter has been publishing is called Creator Economy. And it’s not only a newsletter, it’s a community for creators and web3 enthusiasts who want to unveil creative ways of making a living online doing what they love.

From curious beginner’s guide to crypto to community building, Peter Yang covers a wide array of topics, that also includes career tips like how to break into web3 as a PM. The author manages to break down the complex processes and answer core questions so that even beginners can be up and running in no time.

I suggest going with the article that aims to answer ‘Is Web3 a Solution Seeking a Problem?’, but if you’re not a beginner and prefer a more hands-on approach - join the learning community Odyssey and contribute to helping onboard 1 million people to web3.

๐Ÿ’กWhat's New

๐Ÿค”  For the Interested - Creators & Creativity | Entrepreneurship | Makers

Josh Spector is a marketing and business consultant, a writer, and an “idea guy.” He has an obsession with curiosity, learning, and curation of valuable ideas that he can share with other interested people.

For The Interested aims to inform entrepreneurs of all the ideas they will need to navigate their various market niches. Quoting a review “Most days this newsletter is only one or two sentences, linking to an actionable resource. Super high-quality stuff. Worth it just for the tips on how to engage people on Twitter.”

P.S. the best thing is that you can reply to the welcome email describing your work and issues with growing and promoting your content and receive a specific suggestion from the author himself! 

๐Ÿคž Crossed Commerce - Business & Strategy | Entrepreneurship | E-commerce

Chris Meade, the creator of the very successful “ four-squared volleyball game” shares tips on how to grow your business. The insights into what has or has not been working for him and his team when building Crossnet seem the most valuable - “we’ve made so many mistakes, if I can help just one person avoid them, it’s worth it.”

I think it’s pretty rare to find a business newsletter with a bootstrapped mindset. So, if you’re involved in e-commerce, influencer marketing, or looking for tips to build a personal brand or tricks to get into thousands of retail stores, Crossed Commerce might be just what you’re looking for. 

๐Ÿ”ฎ Obviously the Future - Tech | Future | Society

Brought to you by Katelyn Donnely, an investor, and author of another newsletter called Declarative Statements. While the latter helps to keep herself accountable for her side projects, the former is all about the big, future things. 

The author writes periodic essays full of valuable insights, research, and real-life examples on topics ranging from psychedelics as medicine to professional training through gaming. All this and much more in a thoughtful format - the catch, the challenges the trend face, the likely solutions, and the bottom line.

If you’re not convinced yet, try reading the issue ‘Pedagogy Rules Everything Around Me’ on education technology. 

โ˜๏ธ Worth Reading

Didn’t think this kind of resource exist and I think it might be really valuable not only for the content creators but also for those using social media as a distribution channel. ๐Ÿ’Ž  It's all about the newest social media trends and things that companies are testing out, planning to implement, or deciding to ditch.

ICYMI is a newsletter, that takes the “Here's what happened on social media this week” format and adds context to the announcements ๐Ÿ“ฃ  Read the latest issue titled YouTube Bets Big on Live Shopping and see if you find it valuable as well.

Have the best week ๐Ÿ’–
