It’s one thing to be Interested, it’s another to be INVESTED.

When we invest in something – an idea, community, product, or cause – we get much more out of it than when we don’t.

That’s because in a good transaction, the money we pay for something enables the seller to give us something of greater value in return.

A good investment returns an exponential gain.

An investment is also a statement of what we care about, what we value, and what we believe will help us accomplish our goals.

With that in mind, I invite you to join my monthly membership program and become one of THE INVESTED!

You’ll receive that content through a twice-monthly email.

I’ve got a bunch more cool stuff in the works and members of THE INVESTED community will always get special access and bonus material with anything I create.

I’m as invested in you as you are in me.

Here’s a sample of THE INVESTED email to give you a sense of exactly what it is:


We live in a world with infinite information at our fingertips which means knowledge is no longer the competitive advantage it once was.

But what is a competitive advantage is our ability to discover, process and filter information in ways that serve our needs and those of our business or art.

I launched For The Interested for two reasons: To help others discover actionable information that can impact their life and to give myself a weekly reason to hone my own abilities to discover, process, and filter this kind of information.

You don’t have to start a newsletter like I did to do this.

But it’s worth considering how you can incorporate the development of these skills into your weekly routine – it will benefit you in ways you can’t even imagine.

Now, here’s a look at the latest ideas for THE INVESTED…

This section of THE INVESTED email is where I’ll pull back the curtain and give you a look at how I develop For The Interested as it happens.

So, let me explain why I launched this subscription program in the first place.

There are two reasons I’m doing this.

First – and this is always the most important in my book – I believe it provides genuine value to my audience. There are a ton of ideas I don’t have room for in the newsletter each week, and I know others can learn from them.

The other reason I launched this is to monetize For The Interested in a way that provides additional value and doesn’t detract from the product.

I don’t believe in advertising or sponsorship – it interrupts readers and worsens the reader experience.

Yes, creating THE INVESTED email every couple weeks will be additional work for me, but I believe it’s worth it and hope The Interested will find it more than worth their $5 a month.

Thanks for your interest.
