Each month, I spend 140+ hours digging valuable insights from books, articles and podcasts and share them in a 6-min micro-lesson email.

August 2, 2021 1,130 Subscribers

I delete all the scamming email addresses and those cold emails and now my subs are down to 1,130 with a 25% open rate!
I'll keep watching on the readers actively and click rate and try to build something people are willing to read every month!

June 1, 2021 Had my first paid customer!

After sending out two newsletters, I got my first paid customer with $299 income! What an exciting moment! The very first step to achieve the 100 True Fan goal!
I also clear out the cold subscribers so at the moment I have 1,000+ subscribers with a 21% open rate!

April 30, 2021 2021 Subscribers

I used to have an email list with 4,000+ people I dealt with from my previous corporate life.

I sent out an email to ask them if they'd like to stay on my email list and receive my Chiwi Journal newsletter.

I delete all those who didn't reply and those who unsubscribed and started from scratch to build up my monthly newsletter.

Here are the current statistics.

April 1, 2021 Come up with the idea

Many people amazed by my time and energy management skill and ask me to recommend what they should read and listen.

That's how I come up with this idea by sending out a monthly email newsletter with the valuable content I filtered, curated and wrote.

I take in all the noise on my readers' behalf and share what matters to free their time from information overload.
