Twitter remains the only social media platform that I consider to have a net positive on my life.
Everyday I would find a post/thread/image that changed my mindset for the better.
So here's a list of people on Twitter that I follow who has greatly influenced my life.
Nick Maggiulli writes investing/personal finance post using data, my favourite post of his is: Just keep buyinh
Morgan's wrote amazing articles on personal finance and investing, this post: The spectrum of financial dependence and independence was what turned me into a follower.
Tim is the CMO at Ahrefs, he's what (I think) what every marketer should be: Honest, knows customers and product inside and out, always sharing and contributing, be humble
The founder of Carrd.co, an absolute joy of product to use to create landing page (as I have used and recommended to my friends). Aj shared his story of how his most successful product came to be, from idea, implementation and launch. His story reminds me that he had spent years creating website templates before he made the website builder that everyone loves.
The designer, programmer and video maker who shares everything. The amount of videos that he put up simply baffles me. He has videos on building 12 apps in 12 weeks, how to design and code a landing page from scratch, draw illustrations (really good ones), and more... If you're into those kinda stuff, you should definitely follow.
Another multi-skilled individual who I admire. He's a writer, designer and maker who's launched a few products. One thing I like about him is that he's also a UX copywriter, writing user friendly words on apps and website is something I wanted to learn a long time.
Someone I recently followed who has a terrific curation of great writings online. Here's the page to check out if he's worth following.
Many consider him as somewhat of an asshole, but I usually get past that with what he shared on marketing and launching products in general.
Ryan totally shaped my perspective on SEO and content marketing, a field I'm interested in. His best articles can be found on his agency's blog.
This guy came out of nowhere from the indie maker community and has been crushing it. He's a true inspiration for learning to code, launching a product and making sales even if you have never done any of those things before.
A big theme for me this year is to write more and improve my writing, and Jason taught me a lot of writing is actually editing. That there should be iterations to not just in writing, but in other areas of life as well, something that kids are not learning in school nowadays.
Ryan is the person who made stoicism accessible to me. His book: The obstacle is the way was a page turner, in which a lot of the stoic lessons I still remember to date.
A lot of people preach that your blog/site should be niche focused (focused on 1 topic). But not Nat, you can find articles on finance, health, launching an online business, even sex on his blog. And he showed that you don't have to follow the norm. As someone who also has varied interest, I want to write on my blog like Nat. Btw, he has an awesome newsletter too!
Yet another multi-skilled person I really admire! Jesse is skilled in paid marketing, SEO, and runs a marketing agency. He's a programmer who code features for his own company, and has a few products under his belt.
A designer turned Saas entrepreneur who runs converkit. I followed his journey since when he just started convertkit. He's the person who taught me the best marketing you can do is to teach everything you know. Looking back, I should have done more of what he said.
Una is a designer who I followed for awhile. Everything she designed is just too cute! She's definitely one of the few who inspired to be good at design.
He wrote a cool story of how he built a micro saas on a long haul flight, which he then grew into a $40k/month business. Besides that he's shared great insights on how he grew a Saas product behind the scene.
VCs get a bad rep, but Chamath is the only cool one I know :) He's also the OG growth hacker I would say, before the term was even cool. Watch his videos (search him up on Youtube), he talks about a wide range of things from Tech to business, and the future, but he has a very unique perspective which I think a lot of people will be interested.
