Recent emails you don’t want to miss…



Here’s the view from my office on this snowy January day. It’s cozy as hell in here, even if my brain is somewhat on fire with back-to-work items.

A snapshot of my first day back to work after two weeks off:

>> Pretending not to see the sea of red overdue items in Asana

>> Microdosing LSD because I need the extra brain power today (I may regret it at bedtime when I can’t fall asleep)

>> Clearing my inbox in 86 minutes after bulk-deleting 46 emails from Superhuman—I promise I replied to the important ones

>> Getting sidetracked by an expected Christmas package from one of my Email Stars alum sent me (see garbage on my office floor)

>> Getting extra sidetracked by all the replies to my welcome sequence in the company inbox — I’ve been running ads over the holidays, so there are tons, a good sign my ads manager Lara is finding the right people

“Loving your emails, Tarzan. They're a breath of fresh air.”

“Lololol your emails are SO GOOD. Read the second half of that one aloud to my wife.”

“Thanks for the phenomenal email!”

“This was so beautiful – and compassionate. Thank you Tarzan.”

I was kinda nervous sending that email about cocaine, but funny enough, most of the replies subscribers sent had more to do with what I said about grammar. (I see you, grammar nerds!)

Another subscriber took the time to educate me on the cartels who run the cocaine game in the Americas and basically said, “Your email was hilarious but girl, listen to me, there is no such thing as responsible cocaine use.”

My subscribers are seriously THE BEST.

I love it when you hit reply and talk about big important stuff. And little stuff, like who you secretly wish was climbing in your window at night
