Every Friday, meet someone from the past who has a quality that can help you solve problems in your own life today.
Since its beginnings in June 2019, many, many people have signed up to join my email list to learn about people from the past. They’re not the giants of history–in most cases they’re people that you’ve probably never heard of. But through the brief profiles I give of their lives and their qualities, you can learn something not only fun, but useful and inspirational.
In order: Elsa Brändström, Swedish nurse and philanthropist; Cuauhtémoc, Aztec ruler; Conrad Veidt, German-born film actor; Heman Sweatt, civil rights pioneer; Börte, wife of Genghis Khan.
My list is no-spam, and it’s not a boring “newsletter.” It’s full of fascinating stories from all eras of history, and it’s built around qualities that resonate in the present.
The people who have joined my list really enjoy it. I know that, because many of them reply every week to tell me so!
In order: Tycho Brahe, Danish astronomer; Raoul Nordling, diplomat who saved Paris in WWII; Pulcheria, Byzantine empress; Frances Perkins, first woman Cabinet member; Olaudah Equiano, anti-slavery activist.
You’ll be surprised what we can learn from people in the past. My motto is “learn something fun,” but the unspoken value is, “learn something that can help you.”
