My thanks to all 100+ of you & personal update
On reaching over 100 subscribers in 3 weeks & counting, writing threads, moving, what's to come
My partner and I moved last week, so no long-form content today. I'm writing this while sitting on a camping chair, the morning of sending this out to you — truly flying by the seat of my pants here 😅
But if there's one word that captures my current state of being, it's gratitude.
100+ of you and counting
After 3 weeks of starting Health & Wealth, we've reached over 100 subscribers! 🎉
This was built entirely from scratch — published with my first name only and a new Twitter account @healthwealthgen starting with 0 followers. Gratitude to all the H&W early adopters for giving my work a slice of your attention 🙏
Growth has been consistent, combined with an uptick of readers after @JonahLupton subscribed and interacted with my work on Twitter.
I don't know the vast majority of you personally since I’ve told very few friends so far, which is even crazier that strangers are interested in what I share online. Health & Wealth serves as my public drawing board — I learn best by synthesizing through writing. I'm human and still early in my optimal health and investing journey.
If you're reading this, I'm assuming you're a real human being on the other side of the screen, too. So I'm looking for your input on two things:
What kinds of topics would you like to see more of? Is there a different way I can present my ideas?
If you feel so inclined, please connect with me! I would love to learn more about you and how you found my writing — that way, I can better tailor our conversations to your interests. You can do so by directly replying to this email (it goes straight to my inbox) or DMing me @healthwealthgen. I'll get back to you either way 😊
Receiving messages like these makes me so happy:
I will be bringing you much more content to come and hope to continue to pay it forward as Health & Wealth grows. I promise to respect your time with each piece I write and keep it simple, relevant, and engaging.
Subscribe, so you don't miss it — it’s free 🙂
I've also recently been experimenting with writing more general content. Here's a thread I wrote on how to be a citizen of the internet:
And another on writing online about investing:
Bonus: thoughts on moving
Last weekend, movers came to help us move into our new home. Here are some thoughts that came to mind:
Every stage of moving is a pain — packing, transporting, unpacking. And it seems to be increasingly painful with each successive move, given that humans naturally seem to accumulate more stuff over time.
At the same time, moving is psychologically beneficial because it helps you transition into a new chapter in your life. When you are forced to pack away all your things, you take stock of your past and present while you project what your future will look like. Many things that were once valuable or useful to you aren't anymore. But this process also unearths hidden gems — things tucked away that you forgot even existed.
Moving holds a lot of personal significance, akin to starting a new job — after all, if you're like us working from home in the pandemic age, you end up spending 90% of your time at home.
Until next week,
