Email newsletters can be a funny thing. The majority of us typically subscribe to too many newsletters which we think we will value, but which we hardly ever seem to find the time to read. Over time we begin to treat these newsletters as a type of spam cluttering up our inbox.
I myself went on a email newsletter purge during my experiment in reducing my emails by a quarter, culling all but the most valuable newsletters. Those newsletters that escaped my vicious cull were the one’s that help me be happier and healthier, more confident and more productive and a better business owner.
The Must Read email newsletters I recommend (and personally subscribe to)
The litmus test for a great email newsletter for me is whether I genuinely miss reading it if it doesn’t arrive in my inbox.
So, which newsletters are they? In the spirit of shining a light on some great content by real experts in their respective fields, here’s an insight to the must read email newsletters I recommend and personally subscribe to.

Alan Matthews is a trainer to professional speakers and the author of “The Successful Presenter’s Handbook“. His free newsletter on personal confidence offers a regular reminder to any business owner on how you can be more confident.

Health & Mind – Tracy Reck’s “Feel Good Friday”
