Why I Unsubscribe from Newsletters

And Why Startup Founders Should Too

So, over time, all this information just became less and less useful to me as a business owner.

Nowadays, with so much information available online on any topic, it is easy for me (and all of us) to become overwhelmed with too much information online.

The problem is not necessarily the amount of information coming at us but the quality of it.

With so many new startups that have been created in the past few years alone (many of which are startups by first time entrepreneurs), there is more than enough content online for all of us who are interested in startup or entrepreneur topics.

The Solution:

Begone, Email Newsletters

My solution has been to unsubscribe from all newsletters and blogs except those from people whom I am close friends with — who know me well enough that their articles will be relevant for me given my situation as an entrepreneur and life events.

A Pro Tip:

Use Spark Mail App

If you do still want a way to read newsletters/articles easily on your phone or tablet, I recommend the Spark Mail app. You can subscribe to any email newsletter with it and have it sent to you as a daily email digest of the articles that come from that newsletter.

This way, you’ll be able to see an overview of what was in each newsletter without having to read through dozens of articles or newsletters.

For those out there who still want to stay informed about startup and entrepreneur news online, I highly recommend this app!
