🏠 X Is Everything. Everything Is X.
Everything everywhere all at once
Gm. It’s Halloween season. Reply and let me know what your costume was/is. Me and my girlfriend did Harry Potter/Hermione (I watched Harry Potter for the first time this year, sue me).
X, X, X
Regardless of your personal opinions on Elon and his first year as Chief Twit, the numbers don’t lie:
But that tough first year (at least numbers-wise) doesn’t mean Elon is crying uncle. Far from it.
Instead, he’s forging ahead with the goal of turning X into the app that keeps you glued to your phone, computer, or headset. In other words: the everything app.
And we got some details on those plans thanks to a company all hands hosted by Elon and CEO Linda Yaccarino. They want:
Your entire financial life on X by the end of 2024. Who needs a bank account when you have X?
X to be a LinkedIn competitor, which as every freelancer knows is a legitimate use for X.
X to be a fully-fledged dating site.
Which would be pretty damn cool.
But: None of this will be possible if X can’t lure back advertisers.

🤩 MONDAY MOTIVATION
If you’re ever lacking motivation, just go down a Francis Ngannou rabbit hole. Never fails.
Francis Ngannou’s story is incredible.
This is a man that was homeless on the streets of Paris 11 years ago.
Look at him now.
He became the UFC Heavyweight Champion and he just arguably beat the supposed greatest Heavyweight boxer of all time.
