Hi. I’m Bill Murphy Jr., the guy behind Understandably, a new, daily email newsletter.
I’m also a contributing editor at Inc.com, where I have the #1 column with about 3 million readers a month. Previously, I wrote the daily Inc. This Morning email for a year.
Then I thought: Why not go out on my own? How hard can it be?
Actually, it’s kind of hard. But it’s fun and I write it every single weekday.
Here are some real, no-kidding reader comments, plus links to a few emails I’m especially proud of. Then at the end, of course I’ll ask you to sign up.
“This. is. awesome. :)”
“I look forward to your post every morning. I wake up to hundreds of emails, but seek yours out 1st ;). You're exceptional!”
“Love Understandably. The articles are inspiring and informative.”
“I started following you on Inc. but I think I like this newsletter better!”
“Can't wait for this to pop up at work each morning.”
“Your email newsletter always gets me thinking about the 'what ifs' and possibilities, without being judgmental or preachy.”
“Thank you for your writing - I always learn something and enjoy the time I spend reading. (And it's clear you enjoy the writing process as well.)”
“I really enjoy your newsletter, it's everything I would want to write myself: succinct, witty, informative, with heart.”
“I love your emails/newsletter. I read it everyday. Thank you!”
“Once again, your email newsletter presents a new way to look at an issue or event. So much better than all the stagnant content being recycled out there.”
“Good stuff Bill. The last couple of days have struck me as some of your best material to date with the new site. Keep up the good work!”
“Your newsletter makes checking my inbox pleasant again! Thank you.”
“Your daily emails are reliably 4-5 stars and I read them in their entirety and click on about half the links. Thank you!”
Also, here are a few of my favorite recent entries. I mean, they’re all good, but I thought I did especially well these days:
OK, you’ve read this far, so it will be kind of awkward if you don’t sign up now. Thanks!
