Good Monday everyone! 🎉
I have a wish for Readsom to become the ultimate destination, as well as the biggest directory of newsletters without losing its quality. For that wish to come true I had to come to terms with the reality, that I won’t be able to do it by myself. Last week I started looking for help and hope that very soon I’ll be able to publish a lot more interesting newsletters onto the platform!
Anyway, this week's selection is inspired by a Twitter thread on the most underrated newsletters out there. Take a look, I promise you won’t regret it 🤩
I can’t seem to remember where I first heard of The Profile, but I do remember that everyone who mentioned it - highly recommended it.
The Profile is the brainchild of Polina Pompliano who has been studying the world’s most interesting people & companies and writing up their dossiers so you could learn from the best!
From a profile of a carpet cleaner who speaks 24 languages and one on Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to surveying 100 couples to find out their secrets of a successful relationship, Polina always finds fascinating people to ‘profile’.
Start with the most popular and probably most personal issue on the author herself, “I quit my job at the start of the pandemic to launch a company. Here’s what I’ve learned in the first 90 days.”, and decide if you’re going with the free or paid subscription for yourself 🤫
Growth Currency was mentioned more than once on the most underrated newsletter that you actually read thread. Useful for creators and a must for newsletter writers, Growth Currency will help you to start+grow+monetize your content.
Dylan’s experience is invaluable - having left his corporate job to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams, he’s made the mistakes, and is now providing valuable information so that you don’t have to. You can expect information ranging from how to get advertising on your content, to methods of increasing conversion rates. I suggest subscribing and giving Dylan a follow on Twitter to get the best of both worlds.
Another one that caught my eye going through the thread is The Rubesletter. Written by an NYC comedian, writer, and filmmaker Matt Ruby, the newsletter shares his takes on what it means to navigate through life in 2022 (hint: it’s like walking on a tightrope, without a balancing stick.)
In this newsletter, Matt aims to share his perspective on things like tech, politics, society, and life and offer no BS advice to people who wish to see things from a different angle. Subscribe for fun reads ranging from learning how technology works, creative stand-up advice, and rants about the woke left.
💡 Idea Economy
The last one on the list is for those of you who are business enthusiasts or entrepreneurs. John Bardos, the creator of Idea Economy is an ex-pat and a founder of multiple 6-figure startups. He built the newsletter around the idea to “Grow Your Audience. Build Your Business.”.
John gathers and curates the best business advice from the experts, so you could get your hands on the top-tier insights. Want to read about "Building a Million Dollar Writing Business" and/or learn to generate "From $0 to $27k in 8 Months."? Subscribe for high-quality curation and get the two cents from the experienced author himself as a bonus.
☝️ Worth Reading
Alex & Books, a Twitter account that I found completely by accident turns out to have hundreds of thousands of followers, a youtube channel, and a very popular blog - all focused solely on books! Being an avid reader myself I had to go through the archives and find a gem to share with you.
In the article "How To Find Time For Reading?", Alex shares 3 steps to help you actually find that extra time necessary for reading. Read to learn how to record, analyze, and find hidden pockets of time in your day and start to read more.
