Easy, Email-based Training that Helps You Put Your Computer to Work For You

A couple of years ago, a good friend of mine needed some help with his Mac (I think he was having trouble printing or something — I don’t exactly remember) and he asked if I would pop by and give him a hand. I was happy to.

I sat down at his iMac and got to work: switching between apps, launching unopened apps, screwing around with different preferences… the usual stuff.

A couple of minutes later I looked at my friend and his mouth sat slightly open.

“How did you do that?”

I looked at him quizzically. “Do what?”

“Move around so fast. I could barely keep track of what you were doing with all of the apps and windows flying around. And you barely touched the mouse at all. That was crazy.”

True story.

And, not to toot my own horn here, but that’s usually how folks react when they watch me use a Mac.

Stop Horsing Around with Your Computer and Get Back to Work

If I had to pinpoint the reason for my efficient use of my Mac…

I hate when things take longer than they need to; if I’m going to be doing something with any regularity, I always try figure out the fastest possible way to do it. If you’ve read much of what I’ve written, you know that efficiency and productivity are both pretty important to me.

And I’m not alone. I’ve got lots of pals who are the same way.

The thing is: Apple makes using OS X intuitive and easy to use, to be sure, but there are tons of non-obvious ways to use OS X faster and more efficiently.

Because I feel so strongly about this and think everybody should use and enjoy their Macs a lightning speed, I made a thing I’m calling Master Your Mac.

Master Your Mac is an email-based course that will teach you pro-level tactics for using your Mac like, well, a pro.

Here’s how it works:

Each week, you’ll receive a lesson via email that will teach you a new trick or tactic for using your Mac faster (and, thus, more efficiently). Your first email will arrive a couple of minutes after you sign up. The next email will arrive a week later, and so forth.

These emails are designed to be brief, specific, and actionable — the kind of thing you can read over once or twice and put into practice immediately.

I have many of these emails written and ready to go — and I’m adding more all the time. And I’ll keep adding them until I’ve exhausted my bag of tricks. It could take awhile because, frankly, my bag of tricks is pretty deep.

Master Your Mac will cost you only $5 per month.

That means each email will cost about a dollar.

(I’d trot out the usual “for the price of a cup of coffee” example here, but a cup of coffee that costs so little would probably taste terrible. I know I wouldn’t drink it.)

As a Master Your Mac subscriber, you’ll learn…

• How to do things you already do, but far more quickly
• Tons of tricks and shortcuts you didn’t know existed
• How to simplify—or even completely automate—all sorts of repetitive tasks
• How to rely on the keyboard more than you ever thought possible
• Which free and low-cost utilities the experts use to make OS X sing (and how to use them)
• And tons more!

Two more things:

  1. You can cancel anytime you want. No hard feelings. Unsubscribing takes just a couple of clicks and you won’t receive any more emails or be charged again.
  2. Once we’ve sent you all of the emails, you won’t be charged again. I’m not trying to run some health club scam where you sign up for something and then forget about it, quietly spending money each month until you realize years later you never canceled. I’ll take care of that for you.

Sounds great — who’s behind this, anyway?

My name’s Brett Kelly. I’ve been writing blog posts, emails, and books about technology for about a decade now. I’ve been a Mac user since 2006 and, if you’ve read much of what I’ve written in the last few years, you know that I’m borderline obsessive about productivity and Apple products.

How do I know if this is for me?

Here’s a quick list of people who probably wouldn’t find Master Your Mac useful or valuable:

  • Someone who bought their first Mac an hour ago and is still learning the basics
  • A lady who works in IT and spends her days troubleshooting Mac hardware and software issues
  • A guy who uses a Mac to write software for a living

Put another way, this is for people who know their way around a Mac, but know there’s more they could be doing — they just aren’t sure where to look or how to improve.

If that’s you, then Master Your Mac is perfect for you.

Let’s review…

For about a dollar a week, you’ll receive pro-level OS X tips and strategies. No fluff, no hunting around for blog posts — it all just shows up in your inbox, ready for you to implement.

If you’re ready to really see what your Mac can do, I can’t think of a better way to start than Master Your Mac.
