Over time, my email inbox has been expanding to a point where I can’t keep up with it. I only have a certain amount of time I can dedicate to keeping up with everything I receive. I just don’t have enough time in the day.
And not every email I get is worth my time. But Steve from SteveAdcock.us has brought up an email newsletter that I wish I found out a long time ago. I only recently subscribed, but I’m already excited to read these emails. I can finally get my email inbox under control without feeling like I’m missing something important.
Take a look at what Steve has to say about the Morning Brew newsletter. It’s free to signup, and you can always unsubscribe if you don’t like it.
I don’t stay subscribed to very many email newsletters (Morning Brew notwithstanding). I’ll sign up, read a few emails, then ditch most of them because they don’t interest me. Most come across as salesy, and those that don’t are just flat uninteresting.
Then, is it any wonder why I’ve had a subscription to The Morning Brew for longer than any other newsletter? It shouldn’t, because this is one of those emails I make a point to read. I wish I knew about this back when I worked a job.
I love this thing – not just because of the information, but because the sucker is flat beautiful; way more colorful than any other newsletter I’ve seen.
I just love blue.
Here’s a screenshot of the November 25th Morning Brew:
What is the Morning Brew?
It’s a daily newsletter (yes, that means Monday through Sunday – and Sunday only if you’ve “earned” the privilege) designed for professionals – especially those who are gainfully employed. But frankly, you don’t even need a damn job to appreciate the message that each newsletter delivers.
Come for the intelligence, but stay for the writing.
Witty, talented writers write articles. They don’t just throw out a bunch of “business-speak.” We’re talking, like, actual humor. The latest from the stock market. Major news events without all the hyperbole that you’d get through the 24-hour news cycle.
They wrote the following in the June 5th newsletter.
“Yesterday, U.S. Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren announced an economic plan as part of an agenda called “economic patriotism.” Somehow, it doesn’t involve giving Mark Zuckerberg a wedgie.”
Stuff like that, I can’t help but take a snippet of and post on Twitter.
One of my favorite parts of the Morning Brew is the ‘What else is brewing’ section toward the bottom where they give us some quick and easy news bites from the day (or days) before:
And get this: about a year ago, the Morning Brew had about 200,000 subscribers. Today, they have over 1,000,000. They are doing something right, and that’s probably the reason why I’ve remained a subscriber.
From your cell phone or a desktop, this free daily newsletter is definitely worth a read. Click the banner below to sign up and give them a try.
If for whatever reason, you’re not into it, you can easily hit the unsubscribe button.
