Advice on Building a Career and Growing an Audience With Newsletters

Anna Codrea-Rado shares her origin story along with that of several other newsletter creators.

“I moved over from Mailchimp to Substack at the beginning of 2019, and things took off from there. In my first year on Substack, my audience tripled.
