    A fun email for Friday. I hope you enjoy!


    🎤 Listen to this email here:


    The CyberTruck buzz reminds me of the iPhone launch: 
    - Everyone thought it was partially stupid (no keyboard was a VERY big deal back then). 
    - It's so drastically different than the norm it felt like it could take over the world or totally flop.
    - At the same time, EVERYONE wanted to see one in person!



    Was on a phone call with @PaulYacoubian (CEO of Copy AI), he's recently started using a mechanical typewriter more often and found these benefits:

    "Each word comes with an effort penalty."

    "Everything that's in your brain comes out but with less words and less bloat."


    I do agree that there's something very pure about writing with no electricity. It inspired me to buy a bunch more of these "cow notebooks" to fill up with notes:




    It was ChatGPT's 1st birthday yesterday!


    So ChatGPT is only 1 year old....

    This reminds me of the dawn of the internet:
    - At first it was fringe and hard to use (GPT-3).
    - Then it became pretty good and useful (GPT-4).
    - Then it became very easy to use (ChatGPT).
    - Then it became SUPER easy with mobile phones it took over the entire world (???).

    The future of people working with their brains will become very interesting.


    Me and some friends went to a "Game Show Birthday" where you compete on different games:


    I think this video would better explain it:

    It was actually REALLY FUN and highly recommended!


    In November 2023 these are the number of accounts reached from each tentacle of Copywriting Course:

    • YouTube: 124,000
    • CopywritingCourse.com: 87,922
    • SwipeFile.com: 42,517
    • Instagram: 51,000
    • TikTok: 258,000
    • Email: 58,650
    Total: 622,089

    I have noticed social media is faaaarrr eclipsing organic SEO.

    I'm not 100% sure yet, but I THINK I have a plan to reverse that in 2024 where reliance on social platforms is decreased.

    Our community is so fun and awesome, and I want to expand it (without ruining the good vibe).


    These are better than drugs...


    One of my all-time favorite products on the planet are: Soft ear plugs!

    I use them to sleep every night, and I use them to get deep focused work done.

    I keep a pair in my bedroom, my desk, and my laptop bag.

    I re-use each pair many times but they are essentially disposable.


    I can use basically any old ear plugs for a while, but if you wear them all the time some brands hurt your ears. These also block 32 decibels of sound.

    I like this brand because they're "softer" than traditional ear plugs.


    Maybe these would be a cool stocking stuff for someone you know! I use these things every single day and love them 🙂

    I hope you enjoyed these Friday tid-bits!

    I have used ear plugs to focus and sleep for over 20 years. I like the silicone ones sold for kids swimming. They are softer and never hurt your ears. I use them over and over again until they have shrunk and become too small.

    Oh yeah lots of people have recommended those! I've never got around to trying them because I love these foam ones so much 🙂
