Welcome to the 99th edition
Another week, another newsletter! I hope that you all had a great one 🤩
This week, I have been offline pretty much all the time. The Christmas Market season has begun, and I've enjoyed meeting with family and friends 🎉
Recently I've started listening to the podcast of Naval Ravikant. And woah, I'm really having fun! Naval is super smart, and it's a pleasure to listen to his ideas.
If you enjoy this newsletter and get value from it, please consider becoming a supporter. You'll be able to join our community and meet like-minded people while enabling me to keep creating content. If you prefer, you can also buy one of my products on Gumroad or offer me a cup of coffee.
Alright, let's gooooo 🚀
The lab 🧪
This week, the lab has set another record: $1600 for the past 30 days. It's obviously still thanks to the Black Friday experiments, but it's fun to see.
I've launched a new Ad campaign using Google Ads. I haven't had much success with ads so far, but I wanted to give it another try now that the Obsidian Starter Kit is more mature, has many positive reviews and testimonials. I've set a limited budget for now, and I'll adjust depending on the results.
