Highlight of 2019: Working with Tiago Forte (@fortelabs).

First, we met on Twitter. Then, we recorded a podcast together. Then, his online course changed my life.

And this year, we co-created an online writing course and built a global community of online writers.

So, so fun.

You won’t find a better person than Tiago.

We told our story in this podcast, which is one of the most popular episodes I’ve recorded all year.


Tiago and I are proud to announce our first full-time hire: @will_mannon.

He’s 100% focused on improving the student experience for both our courses.

Best of all... I met both these incredible guys on Twitter.

Welcome to the team, Will 🎊

Here's the story of how we met Will (@will_mannon).

First, we met for dinner in Los Angeles.

Second, he took my writing course.

Third, I hired him to run operations for our third cohort.

And finally, he did such a good job that we hired him full time.
