Hi everyone, I would REALLY appreciate your input, I want to start my blog (or even YT channel) in Spanish with the idea of synthesizing information about philosophy, health, fitness, nutrition, productivity, and personal development. The problem is that this seems way too wide topic-wise to define my channel/blog, but Joe Rogan for example gets away with it, his format is good, and his guests are often experts. But I don't know if I will be able to talk about these topics with credibility (since I'm a programmer, not a fitness expert, or nutritionist, or MD, or even a very successful businessman). So my 2 questions are: How do I define the scope of my blog/YT channel? Should I restrict it? How should I make the information I synthesize more trustworthy? Just referencing sources works? Thank you in advance!

  • Congrats Andrew! Listened to it on my walk this morning. Love to see it! The excitement in your voice is palpable. 🙌

Hello Synthesizers 👋 I've seen some of you asking questions regarding improving health - In particular focus, energy and sleep. If it helps, I have a plethora of content covering that stuff on my instagram and some on Youtube (Just started), so you can cut the BS and get straight to what works. Feel free to reach out if you're struggling with anything health related - Sleep, focus, fitness or energy. Not trying to sell anything. Just want to give value 🤝 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/alexdemirel/

I was talking to @Jeff Harrison the other day about how he was experimenting with AI to create content. If this really takes off a synthesisers role will only become more important as AIs could churn out content. But imagine someone were to create an AI that could synthesise. That would be powerful.

  • Chloe did a small test with her and a graphic designer and Dall-E, with 4 kinds of pictures: Pic she made beginner ability. Pic he made with his extensive skill. Pics she made with AI. Pics he made with AI. The results (albeit small sample size) are less apocalyptic than expected. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiJeB2NJy1A

  • @Owen Sheasby Oh no, the AI is better lol. But the order in which they finish is less apocalyptic. His AI (with his experience) are better than her AI images. And his skilled image even beats some of her AI.

Hello! Welcome to the Synthesizer Skool. The goal of this skool is to help Educational Content Creators and Consultants reach Financial Freedom by mastering the META for the Great Online Game - Synthesizing. Here are some links you might find interesting: - Classroom - Roadmap - Mission - Resources - Impact, Income, Fun - University I also hope that the community will be more valuable than the classroom. To kick things off, please create a post to introducing yourself. Let us know: 1. The type of content you love the most 2.

These things not just give one a leverage, but an ability to work remotely. Which is kinda crucial when the place you stay is not a viable option for some period of time.

Just posted my first "channel intro" that gives an overview of what sort of content I'm posting. Tried to basically do my take on being a synthesizer in my niche. Would love some feedback on it - my channel is still fairly new (3 months) so I know there are a bunch of things I'm still doing wrong

I am hoping someone with experience in here can bring some clarity to this discussion. I have heard from some YouTubers to not share your YT videos on social media (ig, facebook) because it can lower your AVD because you have people who are just curious checking out your video quickly and then leaving. It could also cause you to gain subscribers who aren't your ideal viewer (again, confusing the algorithm). I have also heard from others that you should share your videos on ig stories and on other social accounts o drive traffic. Can @Andrew Kirby or anyone else in here shine some light on this?

  • I'm not sure there is clarity. Debate both ways on this. But it seems... Sharing won't make a hit out of a dud. And sharing won't hurt a hit. Where do you want to put your life-force?

  • @Steven Shea That's quite the opportunity. Haha. That's awesome! 🙌 That's cool that she wants to share your content. You've got good friends! May be good to get a few more videos up. 🤷‍♂️ But, more for practice. Unless you're stellar right out the gate (which is possible depending on your background). Similarly with the hit/dud thing, if people connect with YOU, they will sub (whether you have 1 or 1000 vids). It seems like you don't want to squander the opportunity by acting rashly?

Hey Everyone, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Stephen, I met Andrew in Sam Oven's mastermind group and we found we had a lot in common. I help people build content machines, automated systems to distribute content @ scale with a lean cost-effective team and without a lot of your time. Looking forward to learning from you all and contributing to your success.

This is it: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgds8r9nRu4ssnojV5v3GOQ/featured There are two Videos currently that will launch at a later time and more will come in that timeframe. More will launch before the others premiere - these are: Channel trailer, A Cover and maybe some others. It's embarassing but they will stay public. Nevertheless I have had some sense of accomplishement when I saw it posted even thought there needs to be so much work to do. Since im Germany its 8:30 a.m. for me so I have much time to do this today. The contents are for now will be Comedy, Covers and some other stuff. Thanks for all your encourgement and Critiques until now and upcoming. Best Wishes Marvin

  • YESSS MARVIN!!! Congrats. Looking forward to seeing the live videos. Awesome accomplishment. 🙌

#Creativity comes from what you consume - This is why I like being in this community and started attending the accountability calls. Even though I'm still not nearly where I want to be and I have setbacks, I think it is a gift to be here and learn from all of you and the sources you provide and synthesize. You provide the Soil for me to thrive in my barren lands so that I may one day bring out seeds to flourish in the Gardens I've created.

So, the mission of my YouTube channel is getting more and more in focus in my brain, but I've felt the need to try to do a better job of articulating it, so this is my first attempt at posting a 'Mission Statement" of sorts. I already realize that it's a muddled, jumbled, incoherent mess, but I also know that if I waited for it to be good before posting, I'd never post anything. My current thought is, get this out there, then try to make a bunch of quick synthesizer hits in rapid succession, and then come back to this idea and try to lock down the focus a little better. Help me, my Obi-Wan Kenobis! You're my only hopes! What works? What is the most obvious thing to improve next? Does this even make any sense whatsoever? Sigh. Imposter syndrome, here I come. But, still. I'm feeling that by video number 100 or so, I'm probably going to start producing something compelling. Before I can get to that, however, I gotta produce videos 1 through 99. Thanks for your help! https://youtu.be/LNNidyV8LjM

  • Congrats on another release. Looking forward to watching!

  • Nice work. Cool to hear about all the interesting family members. And inspiring to see your mission statement. 🙌

Hello Everyone, I finally made the shift from "I want to upload a video to youtube" to "How can I improve my next one?" @Andrew Kirby convinced me almost a year ago, that I need to share the lessons I've learned with the world . But I was too scared to put myself out there. Then, when I decided to finally do it, it was too complicated from a technical point of view and I learned a lot about filming and editing. After hitting the "publish" button yesterday, all my fears and anxieties went away and I felt relieved. I know it's not the best video and it's painful for me to even watch it 😅 but I'm proud of myself that I did this 😊 I didn't share it with my family or my friends .. I wanted to only share it with a community like you who would understand what's it like to overcome all these mental and technical obstacles. So Kindly take a look and tell me honestly what you think 😇 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQlrE5PbrNs&t=81s Obai

The title of the video will be something along the lines of: The WAR On Vegetable Oils Here are my initial ideas. I feel there's a bit too much going on What do you think?

  • Fun and funny. I think you're onto something great. But the quick clickable intrigue isn't quite there yet for me. I'm no help because I'm not sure what's missing, but it's not snap easy to watch like your carnivore vs vegan, what do they agree on vid. Maybe it could work in conjunction with the title like: The WAR On Grease (Why these OILS will ruin your PROGRESS) I don't know. Spitballing 🤷‍♂️

  • @Owen Sheasby Yeah, @Jamie Barclay phrased it better than me

I finally took the step from consumer to creator after almost 6 months of back and forth procrastinating and limiting beliefs, trying to post at least once a week going forward. Any feedback would be helpfull! https://youtu.be/6K3-PjHvq8g

  • CONGRATS JOHAN!! Welcome to the arena. Must feel good after these 6 months. Keep going!

hey guys, so I need some help and thought this will be a great place to ask it, I have low energy, and I just don't understand why, because logically it feels like I do everything right: - I have 8-9 hours of sleep every day - I go to the gym 3x a week for one hour - I go cycling in nature for 30 minutes every day - I try to eat healthy (no seed oil, sugars, or processed food) - my room has a lot of windows, so I got sunlight in the morning - I don't use any electronics 1 hour before bed and have blue light blockers here is what my day looks like: I wake up at 7 am, sit down in front of my computer work till 12, then I eat my first meal, (so I intermittent fast 16:8) after it I go back and work. at 2 pm I go to the gym, at 3 pm I go cycling and after it, I usually do some work outside for an hour, then I'm in front of my computer till 9 pm, I turn it off and go to sleep at 10 pm I'm a noob when it comes to high performance and energy optimization, but if anyone has solved this problem, and has some expertise in this field, I would love to hear your advice these are my ideas on why I have low energy: - I spend too much time in front of my computer - I only eat 2 meals a day (btw I usually feel this tiredness afternoon) - maybe not enough water? - lack of supplements? - my diet is not good enough, thinking of changing to a carnivore fruit diet also, I don't drink coffee only some green tea sometimes and I meditate, journal, and read before bed, Idk if this helps

  • @Benedek Santa I hope you get the energy to go through them all. 🤣 There is a lot of awesome advice here. 🙌 Glad some of it seems to have helped you!

After a long time of excuses, I finally published my first video on my new channel! (I posted a few random videos on YouTube years ago but it was just to host the videos for my website). I think I stalled for so long because I wanted doing video and YouTube something I could be passionate about but feared that once I got back into it I’d realize I didn’t love it. 2 weeks ago when I recorded, edited, and published this it was the most fulfilling week I had in many years. I LOVED it! I’m kinda obsessed now with making better videos Thanks to @Andrew Kirby and everyone else in here for being my inspiration behind the scenes. https://youtu.be/TGv2yIJ1BwI

Hi there, I have so many books ready to be read, all spanning different topics. My Tsundoku. Recently I made the decision to lay them all out and organise them by subject and began creating what is essentially a syllabus of the next subjects to tackle based on the skills they'd help develop. I'm attempting to organise them by the highest leverage skills, the things that have the most impactful knock on effect. The ones that took priority for me were: - Decision making - Learning more efficiently - Communication skills I wanted to put this question out to the community. What skills do you consider to be highest leverage skills that you'd prioritise and why?

Feel free to roast me. The title will be something along the lines of: My 17 Idols/ Mentors At 17 Years Old Which idea do you like the most? (I know they need work. They're not finished) The first one is supposed to symbolise them showing me the way to success + me being inspired (photo probably needs retaking) The second one was to keep it simple and add a bit of mystery The third one is supposed to symbolise a meeting with them (circle of mentors idea)

  • One caught my eye and made me laugh. Goggins coming out of the cloud is hysterical.

My 17 Idols at 17 Years Old People I look up to, want to be like or who have had a large impact on my life. They changed my life and believe they can do the same for you It took up until my 73rd video until I pulled a shocked face on a thumbnail 😂 I’ve succumbed to the YouTuber style Audio quality isn’t great throughout. Recorded on phone. I have a way to fix it.

  • Congrats on another release! Looking forward to watching it!! 🙌 I suppose we all must dabble with the shock face at some point. 😯

A few months ago something clicked in my head, and I understood the severity of the 'disjointed knowledge problem'. I recall painful years of grind and struggle, trying to avoid the shitty life I was on the trajectory towards. Yet no matter how hard I tried, I made no progress. It felt like something was stopping me. I now see that the thing stopping me wasn't external. It was internal. I didn't have the knowledge needed to understand which causes would lead to the effect I so desired. That caused me to waste a lot of time making no progress. And I can see clear pivot points in my life after consuming certain pieces of content. There's an obvious before/after, once someone had imparted their knowledge onto me. So why is there not a better, more efficient way to provide life-changing knowledge to the right people at the right time!? The internet has provided us the technology needed for this to happen. If someone knows the solution to a problem that I have, and the internet has provided the tech needed for that solution to be shared, WHY do I not know about it? Why are there billions of people suffering from problems that have simple solutions? I tried playing my part to solve this by creating my own YouTube channel. If it took me 10 months to learn a lesson, and I could share that with people in 10 minutes, what more value can I bring to this earth? But I soon realised that I was not enough. I don't know everything. In fact, I possess an infinitesimally small amount of the world's knowledge. That's why I created Synthesizer Skool. And I'm incredibly excited to announce we've just hit 1,000 members. Together, we have an absurd amount of power. And if we leverage that power in the right directions, I really believe we can make some magic. This might sound too hypey, but The Synthesizer Revolution is here! EDIT: We've now hit 2,000 members!

#Take notes The system I use to collect all my thoughts is Zettelkasten. There is free software that you use to connect ideas, and I think the main differentiator is you don't put your notes into one category (which is easier to do when putting away), but instead use tags and links so that you stumble across the idea again when it's useful and relevant (focusing on the ease of finding the idea again).

    I love when the system gets big enough to see a bunch of different topics and ideas connecting and overlapping. It's beautiful and inspiring.

I have applied the things Andrew Kirby shared and have learned something along the way the most important point is that "Start then Learn" seems to be the best way to learn something, you know I can learn how to edit a graphic much faster, believe me, it works so well, I feel like I know what to do and what to learn at the same time, without confusion, split the work into small pieces and I just do it. - I used Figma to edit my graphic and I love it, anyone can use it to make graphic - this channel Visualize Value of Jack Butcher he inspires me a lot I just try my best, Have a great day everyone, and hope you enjoy it 😎

So, this took way longer than expected/hoped for. It's less than 3 minutes long(!!) but has 68 video clips in it. I made it short on purpose because my target audience is individuals with short(er) attention spans. I spent days changing the voiceover. So much to say, so little time. I ended up hating both the painting & the voiceover bit (not unusual pour moi). Realized I could write a more thorough piece on conformity and post it elsewhere, so that took some of the pressure off for it to be super detailed and perfect. Some things I should've done differently: - Music. This song isn't the most fitting, but I had already DM'd the artist for permission to use their full song, and they said I could. They asked for the video link once it was posted, so I felt kind of obligated to use it lol - Use a better mic - Speak slower/clearer - Other stuff that I can't remember and, let's be honest, won't remember because I don't wanna watch my video again (kinda kidding) Here it is: https://www.tiktok.com/@anessaryce/video/7147410003081710890?is_from_webapp=1&sender_device=pc&web_id=7138599690130097710 ew yikes, sorry.
