Upgrading Our Newsletter: Share Your Ideas
We sent out our first newsletter nearly 5 years ago—around the end of 2015. We had just quit our corporate jobs to embark on this crazy adventure called Corporate Rebels. A lot has happened since then! But one thing that hasn’t changed: our newsletter. And it's about bloody time to do so....
Time for change
For nearly 5 years we've sent out the Corporate Rebels newsletter. It helped us to grow our audience from close friends to a global community. Our audience of rebels has now spread to 100+ countries.
The newsletter, however, is not really a newsletter. It's little more than a notification of our most recently published blog post. It includes a title, an image, a paragraph or two, and a link to the article. Effective, but not very creative.
Click here for an example of what that newsletter looks like.
While it has worked well over the years, it's time for change.
We often get comments from people eagerly awaiting the arrival of our emails to notify them of new posts. For you, there's no need to worry. We're not ditching the current newsletter. You'll still receive two of those emails a week.
But as well as the current format, we are adding a weekly newsletter, filled with... Well, that's up to you actually.
- Must-read articles from other publications
- Community updates
- News and updates on pioneering organizations
But we're more interested in hearing what you want. So, please think deeply about what you want from our newsletter. Drop your suggestions in the comments below.

Oh, and if you're not yet subscribed to the newsletter, you can fix that here:
We plan to go live with the updated newsletter in September. In the meantime, please tell us your ideas.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup has been appearing in the news for all the wrong reasons and is already one of the most controversial sporting events that have been organized. There have been many concerns about Qatar’s suitability as a host country but even more touched on is the treatment of workers hired to build the infrastructure. This is something that FIFA should have been aware of when the decision was made to host the event in Qatar due to the knowledge that the country relies heavily on migrant workers and its exploitive labor system.
For the last two years, we've been working on a book about Haier, the Chinese manufacturing firm reinventing management as we know it. Writing this book was a long, interesting, and intense process, but we managed to wrap up the final manuscript of the book earlier this year, titled "Start-up Factory." Although the book will only be published in September 2022, we gave Corporate Rebels Academy community members early bird access to the final manuscript. Here is a selection of their reactions to the book.
