Trevor McKendrick - Taking the next step

This is gonna freak you out but gimme a sec: Have I told you how much I love you?

Yes really – you, Dear Reader.

You see, this newsletter you're reading right now, welllll.... it's not exactly what you would call my main gig.

I write this newsletter because of you.

The fact that you save me a spot in your sacred email inbox every single Monday – there's 30-year marriages that don't ever get to that level of trust & intimacy...

It means a lot.

"But wait!", I can you hear you saying – "Trevor, today isn't even Monday. Why the freck are you in my inbox right now?”

Because I wanted to let you in on a personal secret that I don't talk about much.

I have a goal of getting to 10,000 subscribers by the end of the year. Right now - literally as I write this – I'm at 8,955 – making big progress, but there's still a hill ahead to climb and I’m running out of time.

So I could use your help.

Here's what I'm asking: would you share How It Actually Works with a friend, coworker, family member, old college buddy, high school friend you now ignore, etc. etc.?

Sharing is easy. Just copy & paste your referral link: https://sparklp.co/0ad14c54. You can drop that in Facebook, Twitter, an email, etc.

"Duh Trevor, I know how the Internet works." (Sorry.)

What's in it for you other than my undying love & support?

  • For 2 referrals
    • I worked with Eric David Perell, Eric Jorgenson, Nat Eliason, Taylor Pearson, and Jason Crawford to create a special download of their work specifically tailored for you
    • Think of these as a package of highly recommended readings designed specifically for my readers.
    • Includes a free copy of Eric’s recently published (and fantastic) The Almanack of Naval Ravikant
  • For 20 referrals
    • Monthly 30 minute group coffee chat w/ me and everyone in this tier group
  • 2,000 referrals
    • I'll put your picture & a URL of your choice on a billboard. Yes this is real.

Thanks – I'll see you (as always) next Monday.

Trevor
