WLW #53

November 02, 2022

🥳 1. Celebrating One Year Of Work Less Wednesday!

I can’t believe this week as been ONE YEAR since I sent out Issue #1 of Work Less Wednesday!

I want to thank everyone who has subscribed and reads WLW weekly.

It is honestly my favorite piece of content I write each week.

I’ve got some really exciting stuff planned for year 2, but for now…

I wanted to take a minute to share some 10 fun statistics and milestones from the last 365 days:

💌 1. Issue #1 of WLW was sent out on November 3, 2021 to 175 true believers ðŸ¥°.

📬 2. Work Less Wednesday grew from 175 to 11,327 subscribers!

🏖️ 3. I launched and taught two Cohorts of 🏖️How To Work Less, to 83 students, netting $80,000+ (Join Cohort 3: January).

📸 4. My Instagram grew from 10,100 followers to 103,700 (I posted nearly every day)

🐦 5. My Twitter grew from 300 followers to 2,748 (follow me!)

😭 6. I exited another business for a $37,000 loss. (story coming soon!)

🎨 7. I designed and launched my website.

📜 8. I wrote and published the Work Less Manifesto.

🏢 9. I continued to run my $500k+ design business.

⏰ 10. And, in that one year period, I worked a total of 1,309 hours (JUST ~3 hours and 35 minutes a day.) 🤯

I think I’m most proud of #10.

I hope this breaks some limiting beliefs about how much time you need to work.

You DON’T have to work 80 hour weeks in order to be successful.

You CAN run a six-figure company of one in less than 20 hours a week.

🧠 2. 8 Insights From 1 Year Of Weekly Newsletter Writing – Instagram Post

If you are a creator, I believe writing a newsletter is one of the best things you can do.

I learned a ton over the last 52 issues about what works, and what doesn’t.

Today on Instagram, I shared a post highlighting 8 lessons I learned on the journey to 11k subscribers.
