Welcome to The Weekly 3x3 By Ev | Edition 15 🎉

I feel like every week I tell you it's been a busy week, but this week has been a busy week! My Article on How To Write Your First Permanent Notes In Zettelkasten was a definite hit with over 1000 people reading it!

The Pre-Launch went live for the Focus Hub System. It's the system I've built over the last 18 months to get not just more done, but better things done. Check it out and grab the pre-launch price. Launching 4th October.

October will also be the last ship30for30 cohort in 2021. To say it's been life-changing for me is an understatement. Hands down it's been the catalyst for the rebirth of my creator life this year. If you want to come and join us use this link to get $50 off your enrolment.
