đź‘‹ Hey there, I’m Gregory Ciotti

Welcome to my home on the world wide web. This is where I publish weekly articles that examine data on entrepreneurship and creative work. Read my post on how much solopreneurs make to get a sense of what I publish.

About me? By day I’m a marketing consultant. I also run a few small independent websites and invest in real estate. But that’s just how I make money, I do other things too!

But back to the website you’re visiting right now:

Sparring Mind is a newsletter with a single purpose: to surface practical, non-obvious advice on how to make things that matter. The art of creative work is too fascinating—and too important—a subject to be relegated to clickbait about Elon Musk’s morning routine.

Substantive takes on creativity are out there, they’re just a bit harder to find amid the fluff. And if you’re like most busy people, you’re already close to declaring bookmark bankruptcy—with so many saved articles to go through, you instead get overwhelmed and opt to let them sit and collect digital dust.

That’s why Sparring Mind exists. You’ll get no more than one email per week with new writing from me, and a ruthlessly short list of links that are worth your time (usually no more than five per email).

You’ll be in good company with over 35,000+ writers, designers, programmers, and more creative leaders who get the weekly newsletter.

To join them, simply enter your email below. If you ever want out of the loop, you can unsubscribe in one click.

I write this not for the many, but for you; each of us is enough of an audience for the other. —Epicurus
