Newsletters You Never Knew You Needed in Your Inbox

Newsletters on the psychology of money, category creation, and tips to writing great copy.

June 30, 2022

Hello everyone, I missed you! πŸ’œ

For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been traveling to and exploring NYC (for the first time!). I decided to take a quick break since I don’t usually write in advance and didn’t want to deliver smth rushed and half-baked. Anyway, after hundreds of thousands of steps, a Madonna show, and hours, and hours of flying - I’m back (even if still a bit jetlagged)! And I will make a promise to be better prepared next time I’m going somewhere 🀞

Without further ado - this week's selection includes a newsletter on money and psychology (with complimentary drawings), weekly art curation, deep dives on category creation, and much more. Let’s dig in!

⚑ Spotlight

Young Money by Jack Raines

I found this newsletter as a recommendation while scrolling through Twitter. Usually, these end up at the end of my long list, to be checked when the time comes. But not this one!

I wanted to see what is it about and got hooked on the goofy drawings (I’m clearly a sucker for sticky figures). Long story short, Young Money landed in my personal email address and I already read like 10 issues 🀭

The author Jack Raines is passionate about making and managing money. His engaging writing style and unique drawings will give you some perspective on topics like market inefficiencies, chasing your dreams, and money management, offering you tips, tricks, and valuable insights along the way.

Read about a type of cognitive bias - Price Anchoring and Broken Stories - that are told to us as well as we tell ourselves ("I just need to let it get back to all-time highs.") and don’t forget to subscribe!

Submitted by the author himself, the technologic newsletter aims to make technology understandable for the average person. Chad Underwood aka the ‘tech’ guy’ is driven by the excitement he gets when he helps other people conquer their fears of technology. 

He paints a bigger picture, provides real-world examples, and different possible situations to highlight the importance of the issues and explain why YOU need to understand how it all works. From answering questions like what’s a zero-day or the trojan horse to explaining Operating Systems and APIs, Chad does it in a way that ‘a Kindergartener would understand”.

☝️ Worth Reading

I believe that knowing how to write good copy is underrated. Copywriting shouldn’t only be about websites and advertisements. Good copy can make better connections, inspire, persuade, and in general - uplift any email, text, or other written message you send into the world.
