Howdy internet friend!

If you're hoping to get in touch with me (Rob Hardy), you've come to the right place. But first, I've got a few handy guidelines.

Awesome reasons for sending me an email

  • You're an entrepreneurial creator who wants to submit a thoughtful, high-quality guest article that details your personal journey towards 1000 true fans.
  • You have a podcast reaching entrepreneurial creatives, and you're looking for a highly-opinionated guest.
  • You've got a genuinely intriguing business opportunity that's in line with my values and vision.
  • You've got questions, comments, or concerns about the Ungated membership.
  • You've got nice things (or constructive criticism) to share about the content or community here.

Things that will lead to me trashing your message

  • You're using a lame cold outreach template and clearly haven't done any research about me.
  • You want me to link to you for SEO reasons.
  • You're trying to submit a guest post that's not relevant, or is thinly veiled content marketing for some random company.
  • You're hoping to "pick my brain" or "find a mentor." If you have a specific question, just ask and I'll try to respond.

If you made it through all of that, and you've got something from the "awesome" category to send along, please do!

Just hit me up at

Thanks, and I'll see you in the inbox!
