Also: what if I stopped comparing myself to other people?
Yep, I can feel the mojo. This is feeling like early Fizzle days for sure. Can’t wait to read more!￼
Fascinating reading, Corbett. I feel sad about Fizzle - it was so pivotal to my re-invention - but glad it delivered a positive and much-deserved outcome for you. I'm grateful to you for creating it.
Started following Fizzle shortly after you started it. It certainly helped me on my own entrepreneurial journey. Looking forward to more from this new newsletter!

Many smiles and much metta,
Love reading your emails as always Corbett! I can't wait to listen to the reunion episode! I can only imagine how bittersweet that sale was. I am extremely grateful for all that you provided in Fizzle over the years!
Hey Corbett, congrats on selling Fizzle. I started my business 10 years ago and love what I do. I was honoured to even be discussed on the Fizzle show a few years back - you might remember me as "the snow globe making chick from Australia" :) Anyways, for a bunch of engineering reasons I have been limited to producing in China for many years. But I find myself in that exciting world of "Starting Things" as I work towards my big goal of switching production to the USA. I have definitely been burnt out in recent years and I'm taking a much needed break from November to January. But it's cool to feel some enthusiasm for a new big goal. I'm looking forward to hearing more from you, I have always really enjoyed your writing.
Appreciate the ground rules. I recently listened to the fizzle show conversation between you and Adii Pienaar. And it just really hit me how well that conversation fits with where I am and maybe even your new adventure with Starting Things and Caroline’s letter. Finding purpose and joy in something that is closely aligned with our values and something that motivates long term. Seems like it’s almost always outside of social media, money, etc. And another tangential thought - not doing something or stopping something can be celebrated as much as starting new things. It seems strange that we celebrate the change in weather seasons but forget to do that with our lives, outside of the peak milestones society likes to celebrate (graduating school, weddings, etc).
You mentioned (in your email regarding the Fizzle sale) there there would be a transition period where we could still access Fizzle courses. How is that working? I can't find anything further to that and when I log onto Fizzle now, it takes me to the new corporate site.
Excited to check out the new writing on Substack. Always good to hear from you Corbett and congrats on the Fizzle sale!
Congrats on the sale Corbett! It's great to see you writing again.
