If you're a curious intelligent person, you should definitely join the 25,000+ other people on my newsletter, the "Monday Medley." It’s one email a week with everything interesting I’ve read or found, plus new articles and book notes.
"It's a delight I look forward to every week. I'm hearing your honest, interesting thoughts — like a friend in the inbox."
"As a longtime newsletter creator, I'm also a newsletter "connoisseur" and subscribe to 50+ newsletters. A tiny sliver of those make it to my "must read list" and Nat's Medley is high on that list. The newsletter is consistent in its ability to delight me, with a provocative piece that I would have missed or a business tactic to help me scale RadReads. I highly recommend this newsletter to entrepreneurs, creators, executives — and anyone who digs intelligent and unique ideas."
“The Medley is my favorite way to start the week. It’s fun, informative, and playfully surprising.”

"Honestly, the wide variety of topics in the Medley such as business, health, technology, world, etc almost always align with what I am interested in and if they don't, I look at it as something I might want to be interested in. Along with having greatly curated articles, you also do an amazing job at boiling the information down into an abstract that is concise enough to get the main gist across yet juicy enough to want to click the link and read the whole article."
"Nat's Monday Medley has earned its position in my inbox as one of my three favourite weekly subscriptions. I feel that If I'm going to read anything, it may as well be uplifting, enlightening and worth thinking about or reflecting upon. Since I'm in Australia I get it earlier than most and I read it top to bottom as soon as it lands, it's like picking up the prettiest seashells from the seaside before the crowds arrive."
"Like everyone else I am SUPER f*&king busy and my inbox is precious real estate. Nat's Monday Medley is well worth the limited space in my inbox.

It’s because the emails are so enjoyable to read and he actually takes the time to make it look good. He organizes it in a way that stands out from the rest. Keep up the Videos on your YouTube channel and by the way he didn’t pay me to say this."

Nat’s journey is really inspiring as I build multiple businesses and I’d definitely call him a mentor of mine."
"I work in demand generation and I appreciate how the Medley combines articles and trends that are relevant to my career, while also acknowledging that there is a world outside of the buzzwords and the metrics. The work we do online doesn't happen in a vacuum, and the Medley acknowledges that by combining happenings in the digital world with whats going on in the world around us."

Such a fun and informative weekly roundup: expertly-curated stuff and so simple to digest.

It's essentially like having an assistant who finds the neatest, wackiest, and most timely content on the web–and hand-delivers it right to me."
"Always a very good read. Been reading for two plus years and consistently get at least one thought provoking or “call to action” item that starts the week off great. Thanks for all the work you put into it!"

I would recommend this medley to friend and stranger alike, it's an appreciable way to pull yourself out of the abyss of online, social-media-borne echo chambers. Introduce yourself to a new perspective: join the list."
"I love the Medley and [Nat's] content in general. My favorite parts are: The "counter-intuitive" content that makes me think outside the box (example: landfills being, arguably, more eco-friendly/sustainable than recycling) and all things fitness/health that Nat shares. I feel like he has a fun, fair, and balanced approach to learning these things and sharing."
"Love the Monday Medley! One of the very few newsletters I subscribe to and probably the only one I actually look forward to. It’s a nice variety of info (but not too random) and I enjoy your takes on it all."
"I've been really enjoying them. Always well written and interesting. I've ended up reading and sharing a lot of the articles."

"The medley is the ONLY email newsletter I read each week. I always know that Nat is going to share insightful information about topics I care about. If you aren't subscribed you are missing out on some serious gold every week!"
"Not sure how he does it but Nat scours the web to pull out the most interesting/useful content so you don't have to. The snippets he shares are enough if I'm strapped for time but always find one or two worth diving deeper into. I've shared with plenty of friends but this is one of the few newsletters I look forward weekly."

"I read a lot, from newsletters and blogs to books. Most of them seem kind of similar in a way but Nat has got something that makes his writing seem really interesting and unique. There are insights, but it's not a overload, it's subtle and balanced. I really look forward to his newsletter every week. Also his YouTube channel is really good do check it out."
"Great weekly digest of insightful and educational reads across a wide range of topics. One of the few emails I almost always open, and I often can't help but dig more into a handful of the articles. Come to think of it, I kind of hate the Medley because every Monday, I think I'm going to have such a focused and productive morning, and then as soon as I go in my inbox, I can't help but read the Medley and its links. Though it's definitely led me to some useful insights and learnings so I guess it evens out."

Nat balances rigorous research and thoughtful commentary better than most, and the Melody is a must-read for anyone looking to stay curious and informed outside the standard echo-chamber of information."
"Nat's newsletter is outstanding. My Inbox is filled with non-sense, ranging from discounts at online stores that I've never shopped at to Todoist sending me daily reminders of my never-ending to-do list. But within all this noise, Nat's newsletter really stands out and is a joy to read through every week!"

With the amount of information that is out there, it is extremely useful to have the tools to dilute the information you receive fast and efficiently (getting everything of use out of it).

Not too much information, not too little information, it's just right."
