BrainPint #18 - It's Time To Move
By Janel • Issue #18 • View online
Hi all,
I’ve got some news to share about BrainPint.
When I first started writing, I chose Revue over Substack due to the special curation superpowers it has. However, as the newsletter grows and my writing style evolves, I want to have more control over the format of the newsletter, where it’s housed and how each email looks. I share some of Kevin’s thoughts - see his post to understand why he has moved away from platforms.
I’ve been pondering this move for a month and building a landing page was a stepping stone to making this decision. I finally decided to pull the trigger this week, so this will be the last email I’m sending on Revue. Look out for an email next Tuesday from janel [at] brainpint [dot] com. I’m excited yet nervous about this move!
What’s going to change?
  • I’ll be sending newsletters from a different Email Service Provider, using my own domain
  • I’ll drop “BrainPint #Issue Number” from the Subject Line as it doesn’t really add value to you
  • Less empty space between links! More creativity! 🙌
There are now 220 curious people reading BrainPint.
It’s crazy to think that what started off as an experiment to share some of the best links & things I learned with friends has paved the way for new friendships, perspectives and wonderful insights.
Thanks for joining me on this journey. It makes my heart so happy and I want to keep delivering my best each week to all of you.
Cheers,
Janel

Build a list of people you want to work with someday.

~100% of them will be unavailable when you write their names down.

You'll probably believe you'll never actually get a chance to work with >80% of them.

Keep at it long enough and you'll be stunned by how wrong you were.
