We can all be a little precious when it comes to taking up space in our inbox. As creative business owners, we don’t have the time to read all of the newsletters which we signed up to (usually to get a freebie) so we really have to dig deep and find those with value. I have chosen six which I make sure I read as soon as they arrive and that add meaning to an inbox otherwise full of Domino’s offers and missed Amazon deliveries…
A bit of fellow designer love here, Bre from Rowanmade is a huge inspiration for me. She is an incredible designer but also writes beautifully both in her blog and her newsletter in which she promises ‘Just Me, being honest, with you’ and that is exactly what you get. Bre isn’t scared to give you the good and the bad that comes with running a design business and shares her past experiences for you to learn from. Don’t expect sleazy sales pitches, just beautiful words and experiences.
Jen is the lifestyle business coach of dreams but she doesn’t stop there. Her content is some of the best I have ever read and is shared to your inbox through her fortnightly Sunday letters. If you have ever read one of Jen’s blog posts, you will know that she pours her heart into writing meaningful and helpful posts which will help your business and find your meaning in whatever you do. The letters are completely unique each week and give you a little boost to start a new week.
Brand strategist Devan is an expert when it comes to everything branding. In her weekly Brand Love Letters, she offers top notch advice which can help you build a strong brand which serves a purpose. She does not hold back when it comes to great advice and even offers some amazing strategies you can implement.
Wonderfully written by Lola Hoad, the creative behind One Girl Band a group for female creatives and entrepreneurs, the OGB Weekly Letters always give amazing advice and tips for those who can sometimes feel alone in the big world of business. I always get excited when I see one of these drop into my inbox and I can guarantee that it will leave me thoughtful. Not to mention, each letter ends with a Weekly Affirmation which always makes me feel better about any situation.
When you join the Inner Circle of Sales Page Designer and Strategist Liz from Linea Mae, expect interesting and informative content perfect for a creative business owner. Liz doesn’t shy away from lesser talked about subjects and really gets into the big problems we face as business owners. Plus, you get first dibs on her strategy sessions and coffee chats, something which I’m desperate to get involved with soon!
