“Dr. Mac” is Back!

I just sent the email below to literally everyone I know to bring them up to speed on what I’ve been up to, since I haven’t posted here or sent out a newsletter in months.  

If you’ve ever signed up for one of my mailing lists, or were ever in any of my Contacts databases, you should have received the message (I’m Back!)  earlier this morning (February 19, 2018 at 10:39 AM Central as I type),

If you’re not already on my email list, why the heck not? You’ll receive all manner of free goodies, including (but not limited to):

  • tips
  • hints
  • advice
  • news
  • reviews
  • and more.

If you want all that and more, just click this big, honkin’ button:  SIGN ME UP FOR DR. MAC’S 100% FREE EMAIL LIST!

Now, here’s the aforementioned email: 

Dear Your_name_here,

I know it’s been a while since last we spoke. I’m sorry. It’s just that I’ve been busier than a one-armed wallpaper hanger with my latest project (more on that shortly) and haven’t had time for much that wasn’t mission critical. And, I’m sad to admit that personal correspondence and newsletters weren’t mission critical. 

So I’m sending this message to everyone I know, every person on every list I have. So you, Your_name_here, are probably receiving it because you’re: 

• a close personal friend

• a personal friend

• an acquaintance I’ve corresponded with recently  

• a business associate

• a family member

• a student or former student 


• a subscriber to any of my lists over the years

If you’re none of the above and have no idea who I am or why you got an email from me, I apologize for the intrusion. Please click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of this message and you won’t hear from me again. Or, if you are one of the above but still don’t ever want to hear from me again, please click the unsubscribe link. 

I’ll be sad to see you go, but I’m launching a new chapter in my fledgling business (Working Smarter for Mac Users), and I only want you on my list(s) if you want to be on my list(s). 😜 

Moving right along, the thing that’s kept me so busy for so many months is a brand new 10-hour course I wrote, produced, directed, and edited, called (of course) Working Smarter for Mac Users, based on my popular 2017 eBook of the same name.

I couldn’t be happier. It came out great and I know it is going to help many Mac users learn how to do more work in less time so they have more time for things they love. 

Enrollment starts tomorrow, so watch for the grand-opening announcement and special “friend-of-bob” pricing in your inbox (as soon as I confirm that everything works as well with real students as it did with my beta testers).

Have a fabulous week; I’ll be in touch soon. 

Warm Regards,

Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus
Creator of Working Smarter for Mac Users

P. S. This also marks the return of my newsletter, with all the tips, techniques, and advice on becoming more productive you’ve come to know and love. I’ll get the first one out as soon as I can, so please stay tuned. 

One Last Thing: If you don’t want to miss any of my email messages accidentally, add me (or more precisely, my email address—bob@workingsmarterformacusers.com) to your Contacts database or white-list.  😎

About the Author

Bob Levitus

Bob LeVitus, often referred to as “Dr. Mac,” is a well-known authority on all things Macintosh, OS X, and Apple devices including the iPad and iPhone. One of the Apple community’s most trusted advisors for almost thirty years, he’s known for his trademark humorous style and unerring ability to translate “techie” jargon into usable and fun advice for regular folks. He's written more than 80 books including macOS Sierra For Dummies, iPhone For Dummies, and iPad For Dummies. And, for the past 20 years, he's written the Dr. Mac column for the Houston Chronicle (which he still does). He's also been writing for The Mac Observer for almost as long (he still does that, too). Bob has been published in more than a dozen computer magazines over the past thirty years including: a three-year stint as Editor-in-Chief of the irreverent and unpredictable MACazine and four different columns in MacUser magazine: Beating the System, Personal Best, Game Room, and the Help Folder (with Andy Ihnatko, and later, Chris Breen). Though best known for writing, he’s also dabbled in broadcasting with a radio show (Inside Mac Radio, CNET Radio, 2001-2002) and hosted a popular television series (Mac Today, Syndicated, 1992–1993). Another of Bob’s loves is teaching, which he's been doing at University of Texas Informal Classes for over a decade, with well-loved courses including, iPhone for Smart People, Making Music with GarageBand, and soon, Working Smarter for Mac Users. Always in-demand as a speaker, Bob has presented more than 200 seminars, workshops, conferences, and training sessions in the U.S. and abroad, and given Macworld Expo keynotes in three countries, He's also done presentations at countless Apple Stores, and at least three world-famous Geek Cruises. Last but not least, Bob won the Macworld Expo MacJeopardy World Championship three times before retiring his crown. He did not, however, return the Rocket J. Squirrel Memorial Cup, which is still displayed prominently in his office. Prior to giving in to his obsessions with Apple technology and productivity, Bob worked in advertising, producing television commercials, radio spots, and print ads for Kresser & Robbins and SelecTV, in Los Angeles. Bob holds a B.S. in Marketing from California State University and lives in beautiful (and over-crowded) Austin, Texas with his beautiful wife, Lisa, and Zeke the Wonder Vizsla, with occasional visits from now-adult children Allison and Jacob.
