Ciao beautiful people,
Wow, what a month. Seems like just yesterday we were happy using the get revue newsletter platform till it went under. Last month we tried Mailer Lite - a really nice alternative, but there was more out there - turns out much much more. So, we took a step back and revisited all our options again.
We now settled on Substack - not just for our monthly post - which will always be free for you. But, as our media hub. We will be using this space to collate all our media in one space. We are working on a vBlog with Taya from Ukraine to podcasts from the artists we have worked with and more. All these additional materials will be available via paid subscription - price of a cuppa once a week for a month! Guess what? As a premium subscriber you will also have a 30% discount from our shop as a minimum. Don’t forget to tell your friends and family about this as well - always good to share a good deal isn’t it.
Make your life a little more simpler tip
Time management is a key skill we all need. Believe it or not it is a skill you will learn and relearn all your life. So, here is a basic framework for you to use. Both, in work and life you will have too many commitments and too little time, so what do you do?
Best to break down all your commitments into what is urgent and what is important. Urgent stuff is what you need to do. Important stuff is what you need to do that really matters. For example, you get a phone call - what do you do? answer it now and get back to the person or even not get back at all! There you go you are catching up fast - if you need to answer it now. It goes into the urgent box. If you want to get back, but not yet then the important box. If neither then time wasting box. So, why don’t you try this for yourself now.
