“Like many people, I am on a zillion email lists. Yours is the only one that I look forward to.” —Michele M. Paiva

For 13 years, Alexandra has written a weekly-ish newsletter.

The newsletter has gradually grown from a readership of 2 people (Alex’s mom and dad) to more than 13,000 people.

Readers call this newsletter “helpful,” “thought-provoking,” full of “light bulb moments,” and “obsessively readable.”

It’s been called one of the “14 newsletters you need in your inbox” by Brit+Co.

You can expect:

  • Inspiring true stories.
  • Curated music playlists.
  • Free resources including checklists, worksheets, and mini-classes.
  • Thoughts on: writing, publishing, entrepreneurship, finding motivation, staying focused, finishing projects, dealing with challenges, using your time intentionally, and making each day count.

Note: Your email address will never be shared with anyone. You’re welcome to unsubscribe anytime by clicking the link that appears at the bottom of each newsletter.
