I hate paying full price for anything—but especially for software. I never wanted to buy a subscription product again, so I created AppSumo 12 years ago. Now it’s the #1 site for software deals for startups. Check it out—save money.

Howdy friend, here's 3 fun nuggets to make your week even better...

🚀 How Much Money Do Astronauts Make?


I can’t be the only one who thought astronauts made half a million per year.

Turns out, they don’t.

Former NASA astronaut Carl Meade spent over 700 hours in space, so I asked him how much an astronaut usually makes for that kind of work.

It’s not as much as you think.

Find out in this short clip.

🛫 AirHelp


As much as I love travel, it can be a huge pain.

Delayed flights. Lost luggage. Unhelpful airlines.

AirHelp is one of those things I wish I knew about sooner. They contact airlines for you to get compensation for whatever issues you experience.

Get help from air travel experts.

P.S. not sponsored. Just worth looking into if you travel a lot or had delays in the past.

🧍Line Holding


I love unsexy businesses that make great money.

Here’s a new one… Line holding.

Yup. Robert holds a spot in line for exciting launches like new iPhones, sneaker releases, and cronuts (remember those?). He advertised his business by writing in chalk on sidewalks, and now has one of the biggest line holding services in NYC.

My buddy Nick wrote a thread about how Robert scaled.

You can start ANY kind of business.

Be Epic,
