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.

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.
We're upgrading our newsletter. Share your ideas!
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.
Three months ago, we announced the debut of our subscription model to the world. The response was amazing. Hundreds of pitch deck requests came in, 100+ follow-up calls were made, and 1,000+ new rebels have been (or will be) onboarded to the online Academy. At the same time, we learned a lot from the calls we received. For one, we've made a big change to our pricing structure. Time for an update.
Are you working your ass off? That's something to be proud of—hard work typically means putting in a lot of hours. At least five days a week, and a minimum of eight hours a day. And, of course, those with serious ambitions will not shy away from taking on even more hours... right?
