#109 | Your Information Diet
Welcome to Wisdom Letter #109.
This email will take less than 2 minutes.
We are continuing our series of posts around your information diet.
Last week we discussed the most interesting Twitter accounts to follow.
Today let’s talk about the must-read newsletters.
We will share 5 newsletters that will enrich your inbox every week! (apart from this one🤷♂️)
But first, if you’re new, please signup to The Wisdom Project, we send one email per week that helps you become healthy, wealthy, and wise :)
Now, let’s go👇
The Promise of a Newsletter📜
Newsletters democratize writing.
They help writers reach their audience directly, going past the gatekeepers, the editors, and publishers.
And they help readers segment their information sources.
So instead of relying on a single magazine or newspaper to fulfill all their needs, readers can choose different writers for different topics.
Topics like entertainment, sports, business, politics, self-improvement!
These are traditional newspaper sections.
Indie newsletters give you the power to curate your own newspaper or magazine.
In your own taste.
And that is the real promise of a newsletter.
Now, here are 5 you can’t miss -
Listen Up IH!
Yea, humble self-plug🙈
This is our other newsletter.
It’s about entrepreneurship, more specifically it’s about solopreneurship.
Stories and lessons from one-person businesses, indie hackers who don’t rely on external funding.
We share actionable insights, ideas, inspiration, and original research that can help you start your own journey of being a self-funded startup founder.
And it’s good!
Not saying that just because we write it.
We’ve received plenty of awesome feedback for it from all corners of the internet.
And it’s growing way faster than this newsletter.
That’s why created a new website for it.
Check it out yourself.
This week we wrote about a podcasting tool called riverside.fm.
It was started as a solo business, got profitable, got venture funding, and now it’s on track to be a billion-dollar company.
All in the space of 1 year.
Fascinating story -
The 3-2-1 Newsletter
James Clear writes this newsletter every Thursday.
We love his book Atomic Habits and have even written about it before.
The promise of this newsletter is - “The most wisdom per word of any newsletter on the web.”
And he lives up to the promise quite nicely every week.
Loves this quote from this week’s issue -
“If you want to find a better path, you have to be willing to explore a different path.
That sounds simple, but how often do you try something different?”

Seth Goding is a legendary marketer.
He has been writing a short blog post everyday for more than 7000 days now.
That’s a massive streak.
His writing is crisp, to the point and often profound.
It doesn’t take more than 2 minutes to read but the ideas stay in your head for life.
Read this latest piece about habits and decisions -
This is a new find.
We fell in love with this newsletter when an article from it went viral recently.
It’s written by Packy McCormick, he is a writer and investor in the Sillicon Valley tech scene.
Packy has an interesting perspective on tech, business, strategy and culture.
His articles are long, but rewarding.
Especially this one about the great online game we are all playing, and how to win the internet.
If you want to build a business and a presence online, you must read this -
Big fan of Jakob Greenfeld who writes the opportunities.so newsletter.
He finds unseen and non-obvious business trends and opportunities by tracking several internet trends.
I had the privilege of contributing to this newsletter recently.
I wrote a report about the model of “bundling and unbundling” in business.
And the opportunity to unbundle platforms such as Udemy and Etsy.
It’s a short,crisp report, I think you’ll enjoy it -
That’s it for the newsletter recommendations this week.
