Get emails you actually want to read

Ever feel like you're just inundated with emails full of content that you know doesn't work, is too salesy or is trying to manipulate you into doing something that really won't help? Tired of passive aggressive popups insinuating "you don't want to save 10% and become a millionaire or whatever by joining their list..."? (man I hate those).

You want to be on a list, but one that's not going to annoy the hell out of you. I get it.

That's why I created a newsletter where you only get the insight you want,  when you want it - devoid of crazy sales tactics and "dire urgency" calls to action. Just straight truth. If that sounds like it will work for you, "choose your fix" and I'll be on my way :)


Your BS-free newsletter with insight on business, startups, tech, design, marketing and more that will actually help you get things done.

THE MAVEN - Alexandra Renee Poelstra



Here's What Makes
Really Special

  • Powerful insights in branding, marketing, and design
  • Useful knowledge for technology, business development & startups

  • The good, bad and ugly and WTF from all sides of every story

I enjoy doing things my way, that work for me. Thought others might like that too.

There are a million powerful and successful ways to do email marketing that help improve sales and makes customers happy. I use them with clients. But as a marketer, I wanted to give you an insider's perspective and share my wisdom. This project was inspired by people like you, asking me nine million questions about different things and instead of writing nine million responses, one good newsletter was a smart way to go.


THE FIX wants to hear your thoughts/questions. Someone else might want to know too.

How often can you ask the person writing the email to write an email that's directed just for you? Like not ever really... Now, let's be realistic. I can't answer every single question that comes in. I just physically don't have that many hours in a day. But I'll do my best to get as many answered as possible, and even bring in some guests to get other burning questions answered that may not be in my realm.

Above all, THE FIX is a solution that makes content easily digestible, relatable, and applicable. If it's not doing that for you, just let me know. I like to hear all feedback, even if I think yours is bologna. It will let me know where I can make an improvement or how THE FIX impacts people.
