An Open Letter to You (Free Download)

“It’s a pep talk in a pdf, a fistbump in a file. These 600 words will grab you by the collar, lift you up, dust off your discouragement and motivate you to go make something happen, because we need you.”

Kat Lee, Inspired to Action

Open Letter Cover 2

“Ever wondered what it takes to live a remarkable life that inspires others? Josh Irby tells you how in this poignant reminder that the world needs what you have to offer.”

Jeff Goins, Author, The In-Between

“There will be days when you’re feeling hopeless, disillusioned, and beat down. Those are the days to read and re-read Josh Irby’s ‘An Open Letter To You’. It’s motivating, inspiring, and life giving. I can’t recommend it highly enough.”

Justin Zoradi, Author, Doing Work that Matters

An Open Letter to You from the Rest of the World is a visually enticing, 600-word kick in the pants. Designed (by my friend Joseph Barbier) in a way that forces you to linger over each word, this letter to you is meant to inspire action.

“Go for it. We need you to. Because, if you’re not living a better story, there is no one to take your place.”
