“Resurrection” Email for Older Lists

FROM NAME: Tim Ferriss
SUBJECT:  It’s Tim Ferriss — Remember Me?

Hey Friend,

I’ve put off this email for ages.  I promise it’s not spam!  It’s just long overdue.

You’re getting this because — at some point between 2007 and now — you provided your email on my blog or The 4-Hour Workweek homepage.  I’m the author of three #1 NY Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellers, so perhaps you read one and found me online.

Incredibly, I’ve probably NEVER sent you an email before this (yes, ridiculous).  That’s about to change, and I hope you stick around, but you can easily opt out.

If you’d prefer not to receive email from me, please find the one-click unsubscribe link at the bottom of this email. Otherwise…

Just 1-2 times per week, you’ll get high-quality blog posts (Inc. Magazine named my blog one of the “19 Blogs You Should Bookmark Right Now”) and occasional VIP treatment, such as exclusive content, private Q&As, invitations to events, etc.  The first post should arrive soon.

In the meantime, here are a few things you might enjoy.

1) The 4-Hour Chef audiobook (~6.5 hours, 238 MB) — Gratis, of course. 
Click here for the download page.

2) I will be holding a 2-hour live Q&A on Mon, 8/11, from 6-8pm PT (9-11pm ET).  Please note this in your calendar, and I’ll send final call-in details in the next e-mail.

3) Here are four books that have changed my life.

4) A few of my most popular blog posts:

How I Learned to Swim Effortlessly in 10 Days and You Can Too
Scientific Speed Reading: How to Read 300% Faster in 20 Minutes

And, as always, thank you for reading!

All the best to you and yours,

Tim Ferriss
