This is a message for Consultants. Specifically someone who sells coaching or a course to help people solve their problems. In 2022 I: - Spent two days in LA with Sam Ovens (on track to become billionaire) - Spoke with Alex Hormozi ($200m/year portfolio) - Spoke (and worked) with MrBeast (130m subscribers) - Spoke with Cole Gordon ($2,000,000/month) - Met Bas Slot in Lisbon twice ($1,000,000/month) My conclusion after all of this was simple: This industry is changing… The smartest people have noticed, and are already taking advantage of this shift. Everyone else will be left behind. Watch these clips (5-10 mins) to spot the shift. - Clip from Sam Ovens - Tweet from Alex Hormozi - Another tweet from Alex Hormozi - Clip from Cole Gordon (making $2m/m+) - Clip from All In Podcast (all four are Billionaires) - Clip from Alex Hormozi Watch those clips before reading on. They're short. Here's how I see things changing: - Direct Response → Brand - Ads → Content - Selling → Giving And to me, this is a GREAT SHIFT. Thank fuck this industry is FINALLY maturing. It's no longer enough to have flashy marketing and great sales skills. You have to build a brand. Over the past few months I’ve hinted at this shift quite a few times, and how I've used it to make $100,000/month profit (and sometimes even $90,000 in a day). I've made a: - 33 minute Loom video explaining this new model - 21 minute Loom video explaining how I got 600,000 subscribers using this model - Free course explaining how to build a great community - Loom video I sent to Alex Hormozi about using trends to grow an audience when he asked me to help him grow his YouTube - Notion page explaining the lessons I learned about YouTube growth from speaking with MrBeast - Google Doc explaining the content system that grows your audience in just two hours per week
I've been putting up content on the topics I have been learning that is sales, freelance, content creation and mindset development and what I have learnt is that building an audience will take time but the authority you build with your achievements and free insight is so powerful long term. Authenticity is building trust. Knowledge is the new currency. My goal for this year on twitter hit 500 followers.
was a question I was asked today (it took me around four years to reach FIRE) I answered poorly, so here's a better answer: --- One of the lessons I learned from Stoicism was the importance of time. There are two ways people waste time: 1. Doing things that are obviously unproductive 2. Doing things that they think are productive but are actually unproductive Everyone knows 1 is bad. I wasn't perfect at this. But 2 is the silent killer. To reach any goal there is a Direct Path. But, due to lack of wisdom, most people spend most of their time doing activities on the Indirect Path. So they waste a lot of their time. Early in my journey, I made a framework that to solve this problem. It's called the GPS framework. It has served me well. It hope it serves you well too. --- Step 1: Goal It's impossible to know what you should do until you know what you want. Write down what you want. Step 2: Problem The Theory of Constraints understands that the reason you don't have what you want is because of a bottleneck. There is a problem that, if solved, will help you get closer to the Goal. Write down your Immediate Problem. Step 3: Step 1 Stop thinking about Steps 2 - 100. It's impossible to figure them out until you've done Step 1. So start there. Take your first step. Today. --- Repeat until mission accomplished. PS: This will help
Lovely insight since i came back from school I've been trying to figure out my goals and aspirations and systems that i had setup last holiday and this has brought another wonderful point in my mind that is "How you use your time determines your harvvest" Thanks Andy
#How To Create Your First Piece Of Content I will create a twitter thread about by far my favorite book, Show Your Work by Austin Kleon. The observations I have made and the amazing take aways from the book .
"We don't live that long to become more than amateurs", Charlie Chaplin. One of the greatest comedians of all time said this and it resonated throughout time. A vital pillar in every synthesizer's life and mission, this concept is far more extrapolated in Austin Kleon's book show your work where he talks about the beginners mind and how a new possibility is formed every second with no fear to experiment and "follow their whims". Let's grow the beginner in us. "It is better to contribute to something rather than nothing". Have an amazing day everyone.
#Synthesizing Intro Hello everyone I'm Pablo am 17 years old and live in Uganda. My fascination with the idea of synthesis comes from my fascination of reading and forever learning being that in the field of technology one must never let the "seneca effect" sink in and always yearn for new ways to solve problems efficiently. I am intrigued by content in the space of development(both self and technological), Business, healthy living, study science and showing my work. I am really exited to be part of this family and hope to grow my content and life with all of you.
