In this post I want to: 1. Share an opportunity to work with me and the team in a free 90-day "specific knowledge" bootcamp 2. Reveal what I've been working on and why I've been inactive in the community PART 1: WHAT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON After I "retired", I got bored. Humans are built to work. So I knew I needed to find my next project. But in a world of unlimited opportunities, it was hard to orient myself. Until I hear this piece of advice - Go where you are needed You should always go where you can help the most, in the least amount of time. That's where you're needed most. After growing my YouTube to 600,000+ subs and making $1,000,000, it was clear I had two skillsets: 1. Audience growth 2. Audience monetization So I was needed in two places: 1. Helping Consultants grow on YouTube 2. Helping YouTubers monetize One group has monetization, but needs an audience. The other group has an audience, but needs monetization. Unsure which to go with, I picked the first one. The main person I worked with was a Consultant called Rian Doris. He bought Consulting.com from Sam Ovens, and runs FlowResearchCollective.com. I helped him define his YouTube strategy, built a team of A-Players who would execute on the strategy, and led them towards making videos. What happened next? Well, the channel blew up. - 940,000 views on Video #1 (on a channel with 0 subs) - 60,000 subs just 4 months later So that was it. I knew what I was going to focus on for the next 3-5 years. I was going to be the 'audience growth' guy. Until... My YouTuber friend Hamza reached out and asked me how he should monetize his channel. So I sent him a simple Loom outlining everything I'd do if I were him.
Is Sum Pricing coming to skool? Does anyone know if/ when Sum Pricing is coming to skool? Sum Pricing is something that is currently being used by hamza for his Adonis School. It charges a setup fee of $499 and then montly "Today's payment is $499, and then $99 month beginning in 30 days."
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. Start by checking out these links - Classroom - Roadmap - Mission - Resources - Impact, Income, Fun - University - Work with Andrew To kick things off, please comment below introducing yourself. Let us know: 1. Your name 2. What project you're currently focused on See you in the comments!
I'm not doing it right now. 🧙♂️ Thanks to those who participated / contributed / appreciated previous efforts & offered amazing value on the calls I did host going overtime a bit, very cool. I leave this order, releasing responsibility, and return it to the aetheric chaos for the ideal to be born. As for Griffin, Griffin should be Griffin. @Wiktor Romanowicz @Andrew Kirby I strongly suggest changing the classroom links to on hiatus / just encourage people to throw together their own calls, like a 5 minute task...? Threads were like "where are the calls" over the summer, and if whoever wants to drop links in threads like happened earlier in the summer does it, that's fine by me, but that's my suggestion. Anyone who wants to take initiative, do what you wanna do. 🕊️
I’m meeting some great people here and just wondered where we are all from! Hopefully we can have some in person meet ups 🙌🏼 I’ve seen a couple already 😏😎 PS. Heads up, we have a google map of where our synthesizers are, feel free to add yourself: https://www.skool.com/synthesizers/taking-over-the-world-how-to-join-the-synthesizer-map?p=87794b04
So you all might like this. It's a slightly older post. https://www.skool.com/synthesizers/taking-over-the-world-how-to-join-the-synthesizer-map?p=87794b04 You can all post yourselves on this map if you want... and if anyone wants to get a campaign to make it happen for more people, that is great (you might have to tag people who aren't on there to add themselves haha). I'm not doing it, but if anyome has the initiative, go ahead. By the way, you don't have to put your *exact* location (although... you *could*). I didn't, lol. As it is, everyone probably *should* put theirs on themselves 😅 --- *if* you want to. I feel like a 10-mile radius (or even a region) is generous on a totally public forum. For whatever reason this post won the survival of the fittest competition. But that being said, I feel like it's pretty easy to search the group and network with locals (who say where they're from) if there are any near you. So why the map? 1. It's in one place 2. It looks cool
@Paul Gray Would be good to re-tag everyone with the link so they can see it. That will help, as otherwise everyone who's entered their info here will see this post come back and be like, "Oh yeah, I already did that." But if everyone's tagged, they'll be notified, and notified differently than if someone just posted a random comment. (47 people watching this post is crazy... I usually click un-watch lol)
Today's call will be 2 hours early. If you don't know what I am talking about... Accountability call is 1h per week where people who want to create content hold each other accountable and share ideas We have been running them for about 1.5 years now we don't plan to stop anytime soon. The only reason for change is because I would have to wake up at 1AM for it. I can do it. But my performance as a host would be affected. Put emoji in the comments if you are planning to attend!
@Salim Albitar no problem! I *think* the time change had something to do with Wiktor (who was hosting the calls via the classroom link for a while) moving time zones (thus changing the meeting time) & then getting busy with the Creator Monetization projects. It just never got changed back. So even though more people were there for the old time slot everyone in the group still sees the current one.
Not many people know this, but I actually almost partnered with Alex Hormozi. You can hear my story (and the three things that Alex knows about money that you probably don't) here: https://youtu.be/jEnbQE2u9VM Or you can download a searchable database of every video, interview, TikTok, and tweet that Alex has put out by clicking here. I believe this database can change lives, and I hope you find value in it.
@Pascal Polleunus I don't know enough to have an opinion about all the details, but it is interesting. Are you talking about producing a system to produce these faster, like a wiki? Talk about expanding the power of community because of starting with a big mission... I'm not too familiar with Github but it would be interesting if there is a way to ensure consistent quality control / transcription / formatting throughout each project. That sounds cool. & Pascal (upon quick scan of profile / blog / relevant articles) I appreciate & resonate with your mission & considerations. In the biggest picture, you and I are working on the same goal. In the process of learning HOW I'm synching up with that vision. Definitely giving you a follow.
UPDATE: thanks for all these replies, I no longer have a problem with low energy, I honestly don't even know what helped me, maybe I started to be more strict with waking up and going to sleep, every day at the same time, and the morning walks, but I'm still open to hear, what helped you guys maximize your energy 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
Good Afternoon, glad to be part of the community and am excited to get stuck in. I’ve been following Andrew for a good couple of years not but never was part of the time theory course. Is this still available as a legacy product or can the content be published if it is no longer on sale? I’m sure it would help people like myself who are still struggling with procrastination!

𝗘𝗗𝗜𝗧 (Sept 14, 2023): I've decided not to host these for the time being (it's not an optimal fit in the current configuration), if anyone wants to do anything about / for these calls, do what you wanna do, peace! & to those who showed up thanks, they were tons of good experiences of great value, I hope they were helpful for you too. Some of them went on really long the few times I kept the link open & people kept showing up, that was a blast. But I still think it's confusing with the links still mismatched as of Sept 14, 2023.

hormozi mentions exercising your entrepreneurial creativity, and i have done this before in order to come up with a few (very limited in number) ideas. how did it feel for u guys to do this? he says it should feel fun, but it feels moreso tormenting, the fact that i'll have to solve all of these problems that i haven't yet solved myself. lmk fellas
I agree, to an extent. With every great piece of business advice or way of doing things, this precise way is not always optimal for every single person. However, it is still great to recognize the power it could have & how you *might* be able to take advantage of it. The way I think about this is you have a "Possibilities Set" representing all possible things you can achieve. This DRASTICALLY expands the possibility sets for most people, but you do see the costs associated with it. For you, your best outcome may be another point in your "Possibilities Set" that gives you more happiness. In microeconomic terms, we call this the "Production Possibilities Curve" and have "Indifference Curves" (lines, often curved and almost parallel like rings of a tree, representing sets outcomes one is equally satisfied with along each individaual curve) a end different curves for every level of "Utility" or satisfaction. _____ On the other hand... The book is called $100M Offers. Not $5,000 / mo. offers. To be competitive in a market where you're up against tons of other people for a similar pool of prospects... you want to at least LOOK like you're the best choice for a hungry subset of the market, among everyone they're likely to be aware of. Dialing in all of these things over time can probably help you get closer to the high levels of success, and hey ------ you MIGHT actually need higher levels of traits, skills, and beliefs than you have right now. And in my opinion the people who 𝘾𝘼𝙉 do the most 𝙎𝙃𝙊𝙐𝙇𝘿 be the ones who get rewarded. If the game was way easier, everyone playing it would have $100,000 / mo. on autopilot, but we live in the world, lol. _____ But on the other side of the equation and I really believe this --- "𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒆 𝒂𝒓𝒆 𝒊𝒏𝒇𝒊𝒏𝒊𝒕𝒆 𝒘𝒂𝒚𝒔 𝒕𝒐 𝒈𝒆𝒕 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒆". While there are definitely laws of business just like their are laws of power, laws of strategy in war, that doesn't mean there isn't more than one way to get there. For you it could be this tiny little thing you see or some tiny little advantage you have, which applied just the right way, totally changes the entire game.

Hey everyone! I'm starting my YouTube channel from scratch. (Just upload first video) I'm looking for 3 people to create a mastermind. Purpose: accountability, help with titles, thumbnails, push each other. Together, we'll support each other, share experiences, and motivate each other to create even better content. If you are "starting" a YouTube (have some videos) or doing already and want to be a part of mastermind - leave a comment below! 🚀👇

A year ago I posted a video called "Japan's Anti-procrastination Cafe" and it did decent for me at the time with about 2k views. Now, over a year later, it's being used on "eslbrains.com" to help students learn English. This was not something I was planning when making the video lol, but it just keeps getting views from students going through that course. I even found the questions that students have to answer after watching my video. Just thought this would be a funny share, you never know where your videos will end up! (You can watch the video here if interested https://youtu.be/90DdwVAP9J0?si=zRiZo8QH2rzHRZCT)
Reminds me of [𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴: 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗸𝘀 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗻 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗳𝗮𝗻𝗲 𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗴𝘂𝗮𝗴𝗲] I got my mind blown once when... - my youtube Japanese teacher from 2008's video became an - EDM remix by my one of my favorite artists. I remember hearing this & being like-- wt... Namasensei... (lit. "Beer Sensei") __________ - Receipts to prove he was actually my teacher (and I got 100% in the ****) at 1:35 in the last video linked. Not trying to one-up, I just think it's also a funny share, too. You never know where they'll end up is right. __________ Also, cool cafe idea, that's very interesting. __________ I haven't really shared this online before, but pretty cool huh?

Audience building is the art and science of making people aware of you and what you have to offer. As outlined here, I believe it’s the most effective use of your time and resources. This post details what I believe is the optimal strategy for audience building. Alex Hormozi, Iman Gadzhi, and Andrew Tate have all recently grown huge audiences using the strategy outlined in this post. The Optimal Audience Building Strategy (OABS) actually contains two sub-strategies. The first is the “Dream 100” strategy. The second is the “Content strategy”. The synergy between both strategies is profound. The Content Strategy will help you win long-term. This is how I got 600,000 subscribers, and made $1,000,000+. The Dream 100 strategy will help you win short-term. This is how I made $100,000+ in 10 days. If you want to make more money soon, and make a lot of money long-term, then I’d recommend you implement both. Ready to start? The first step of implementing both strategies is to write out who you want to attract. We call this your Niche. I’d recommend you do this exercise in the comment section below. Write first “My niche is: ______” The second step is to write out where your Niche gives their attention. If you want to capture the attention of someone, you have to know where their attention goes, so that YOU know where to go. We can split this second step into two sections. First, write which platforms they spend time on e.g. YouTube, Twitter, Linkedin. Second, write which influencers/YouTubers/podcasts/communities/forums they like. “My niche goes on these platforms: _______.” And "My niche consumes: _______.” The Content Strategy is to create for the platforms your Niche is on. The strategy involves creating content that your Niche would love (High Demand) that no one else is making (Low Supply). This strategy has HUGE potential, but you’re not guaranteed to get the attention of the people you’re trying to attract. In this way, you can view this strategy as high risk, high reward. Luckily, the cost to create is low, and the results can be huge, so it’s worth gambling consistently until you get the results you’re looking for. But this can take time.
Not sure why i didnt like this and see this earlier. I saw the link to to the twitter thread you deleted first! Somehow that got your take on the Dream 100 to sink in more easily. Helpful on top of already having read Ultimate Sales Machine from the Dream 100 OG, Chet Holmes, but it's best to pair that with understanding of the modern technological landscape.
Graphic for a slide to use in a "Wisdom Swipe File" for when you're balancing awareness of many principles at once. OR more you can just save the graphic as a JPG and use it. (Probably most relevant to most readers) SO short and SO simple as a resource to help get the job done (I had kept reloading this page to look at it again / opened notes but the graphic works best for me)
1/2 month ago, I said that I was looking for a long-term business model to monetize my AI skills. Griffin A. Hamilton recommended reading $100M offer by Alex Hormozi, watching Alex Becker's video on AI, and watching the Consulting.com modules. So I did. I learned everything from mindset to outreach, from outreach to Facebook ads Now, it's time to apply the theory I've already started Cold DMing and Cold Emailing, but I got a very low reply rate, and those that responded ghosted me after a few messages. The goal is to have as many answers as possible to iterate my offer But as my target audience, personal brands with a course/community (aka synthesizers) is there, I think that we could manage to craft a 10/10 offer in 1/10 of the time. Could you help me with that? :) Phase 1:
So I started studying this being like, "omg this is the next big thing" (AI automation agencies, etc). Then I realized it's really about it solving a problem. I see it done best when it's integrated with other aspects of a business you know a lot about. I've been watching @Mario Gonzalez 's content... --- Mario, man, who was the guy who made a lot more money just because he switched to what he was competent in? ... Maybe you wanna learn from Mario or he could use some AI, too. I forgot what video that was. I think he switched from being general to focusing on one thing he was really good at, so it just became a no-brainer easy sales pitch -- and it sounds like a lot of your clients get results like that. People generally should check out Mario as an example of content that's REALLY monetized compared to the reach it's getting (audience size does not hugely correlate with money people can make from it. QUALITY and FIT of the audience are HUGE). _______ But man... you got to know a lot about the lead generation and appointment setting industry as a whole, including the technicals of how to not get your AI chatbots flagged. @Aman Lata will definitely knows a little more on that. ______ What I think might be easiest... Is working with content creators to get EVERYTHING they know / believe / think would teach... and to train chatbots on that knowledge... so that they can have a teaching assistant (which may sometimes makes mistakes) but can guide customers through complex nuance. You could focus exclusively on people who have HUGE amounts of people in their courses, and allow people to have really, really, really in-depth conversations. Basically, it's like they have ChatGPT but it's specifically trained on the coach or consultant's knowledge, geared towards the transformations they apply clients with. This might be in alignment with your third option.
High demand, low supply, and look up "Optimal Audience Building Strategy". Anyone who hasn't integrated core info from that post isn't using Synthesizer School properly yet 😎🧠⚡🔥,🐝➡️🦵 (p.s. i just figured out that last emoji combo... it's the BEE'S KNEES!)
As I was speaking with @Griffin A. Hamilton, he subtly suggested that I could break down my "niche" and look at what I'm the very best at. Like look everything I aim to help my audience with, and then decide, "what am I most confident with helping them solve?" "What do I GUARANTEE I can do for them?" And I came up with something. Everything I speak about on YouTube besides this thing, I AM confident in, but don't know if it'll work for everyone and don't understand all the nuances. This ONE thing - I understand many of the nuances. And could probably help people implement the solutions regardless of who they are or their circumstances. THIS is something that I can charge for. I'll provide courses and everything else for the other stuff for [FREE]. Providing immense value and getting feedback so that eventually I'm super confident in solving those problems too. And can eventually charge for. But for now, I sell what I'm sure will work. And because I'm so sure of its viability, I can make CRAZY guarantees (using Alex Hormozi's $100M offers which I'll do some posts on soon) and charge high prices without fear. Plus, I can probably construct that offer in a way that's most time efficient for me. Ya know, just have the courses for the paid thing be enough to solve the problem - except for one 1-1 call. Do you understand? So do this: 1. Ask, "what do or can I help my audience/people with?" 2. How can I help them with each of these? 3. Which one can I help the absolute most with? 4. Okay - what's my solution then? 5. Construct the offer. Much love x Riley
So to clarify, this isn't exactly what I meant or aligned with the frameworks I was presenting 🤔 ____ I just meant that if you can strip away a lot of things you might be okay at... and focus on one specific type of transformation: taking - one 𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗰 type of 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗼𝗻 (𝘁𝗮𝗿𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝗰𝗹𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗮𝘃𝗮𝘁𝗮𝗿) from - one 𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗰 𝗰𝘂𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝘀𝗶𝘁𝘂𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 that client avatar is in now TO - one 𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗰 𝗱𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗱 𝘀𝗶𝘁𝘂𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 that client avatar wants. And again... as a general rule of thumb... 𝗽𝗿𝗲𝘁𝘁𝘆 𝗺𝘂𝗰𝗵 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝘁𝗼 𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝗳𝗿𝗮𝗺𝗲𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸. I just meant talking about finding what you are good at among the many options within the framework (𝘣𝘦𝘤𝘢𝘶𝘴𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘩𝘢𝘥 𝘢 𝘭𝘰𝘵 𝘰𝘧 𝘣𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘧𝘪𝘵𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘤𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘰𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘮𝘶𝘭𝘵𝘪𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘴𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘰𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳, 𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘯 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘰𝘯𝘦) So if your skillset in your niche is C, C+, B-, B, A+, A; what will work for 𝙨𝙤𝙢𝙚 people is just hyperfocusing on A+ & A (making the niche smaller)-- and that is of course *𝙄𝙁* 𝘼+ & 𝘼 can be clearly seen as valuable problems to be solved in the market with the current supply and demand structure of people who are easy to target. This can have the effect of making it: - easier to be confident & happy with what you are selling - easier to sell because it's so easy to communicate mastery in what you have total mastery in - easier to get results for clients - easier to improve over time (because you are focused in that area). I was thinking of an example of an agency in the marketing / lead-generation consulting space which decided to focus on just ONE very specific process problem within the lead generation pipeline, instead of being a lead-generation company... just becoming a guy who fixes that one tiny problem (which perhaps had to to do with common errors / mistakes people often make in VSLs or landing pages, but I don't remember exactly). ____ What I was saying does not intended to be directed towards nuances of many courses or processes generally -- although you are expressing the value of being high-touch, initially.

Everything on that list can be controlled. For me, a limiting belief was, "I may not be rich before finishing college." Hamza says that most people's current constraint is either a belief or trait. Another word for belief is mindset. Video 2: Work All Day You will not make money doing nothing. Value must be provided. All income is active; the question is, "how active is it?" Hamza lived a life where he only had to work 4 hours a week. It was depressing. Anyone on school vacation with nothing to do will relate to this. Hard work is fulfilling. What can you do all day? Do that. Make that your active income. Active income is the way to go. Working for active income forms the 'good old days'. Video 3: Change Your Identity You must become someone new to succeed. Change your identity. This works. I became the 'social guy'. This made it easy to be social at school. I was identified as such as well. Positive flywheel. One can think of the people they want to model and ask themselves what they would do. That is, "What would Hamza do?" Do what they'd do. As an athlete: what would Michael Jordan do? Video 4: Don't Fry Your Dopamine Receptors: If you get too much dopamine from one source, then there's less incentive to get it from elsewhere. Especially if you're getting it with little effort. Cheap dopamine lowers your dopamine baseline, making your normal existence shittier. So, only effortful dopamine sources will lead to childlike happiness all the time. We can use the brainpoints concept here as well: If you spend your dopamine points, you have less for elsewhere.
This is nice and informative. I will only offer 2 suggestions as a slight modification of very valusble frameworks: 1. As you understand what your ideal models / mentors would do this can help... but there is a higher level of access which can come from learning to trust your inner voice. Now let me be clear----- if the goal is say, "just money" maybe... but this ties into point #2. 2. You probably already realize that money is not REALLY ☆the☆ goal... and I mean it, can you feel it, deep down? This is not to say it isn't for most people the biggest bottleneck to freedom & living their purpose... totally, it may just be so. But we usually want money so we can do other things. Again, I am sure you already realize this... and I am not demanding you or anyone else accept my perspective. As I said it is a suggestion. But there are things we would do... *with* money... and I suggest we all have a sense of purpose and what we love... the sorts of things we might do if money were not even an object, not just to consume, but to create and give in the ways that are meaningful to us. Of course I am not saying money cannot be *amazingly* helpful. But it could be the difference between suffering the success of having the wrong goal vs really appreciating and enjoying and making the most of life. Maybe a lot of people have seen this meme floating around... of "would you take ten million dollars RIGHT NOW... while you KNOW if you do that you wouldn't wake up tomorrow?" Maybe this doesnt resonate with everyone but I hope it helps _____ P.S. @Azul Wells has a cool channel dedicated to ideas like this (enjoy your money instead of continuing ti work forever... retirement financial planning) ____ Hustling for a while can be awesome but there are things we'll all enjoy more than numbers on a spreadsheet. Sure there could be exceptions & overall still a very helpful list, heloing a lot of people with their bottlenecks as you said, thanks for sharing.
@Paul Masters I feel like that is because this community places extra value on productivity and may be aware of the potential for those short clips to seriously mess with dopamine / attention span. Honestly, I have some fears over indulging in them, lol
@Andrew Kirby I'm interested in $10,000-$100,000 / mo. profit (still waiting for the Loom video from what you posted in Accelerator group!) ..... with the following considerations: - elements similar to those that Sam had taught in his courses (the best versions of which are clearly evolving from his original program templates as guys like you & Quazi demonstrated via Youtube) - Growing with affiliate marketing (as someone with a lot of interest on the health and supplement side of focus I learned from adapting to/evolving from neurological challenges, this is a perfect fit) - Community management On a level of technology & strategy/tactics, what I think makes the most sense is: 1. Creating/growing big-site content (youtube, tik-tok, etc) 2. Linking back to / reposting on blog which also contains products and affiliate links 3. Using those leadgen efforts to build communities here (I got the gist of some of your posts in Accelerator--- although with 0 web presence I might consider growth-hacking with the lower-friction / lower quality groups in facebook first) 4. Using community efforts to identify people who are the best fit for higher-ticket services In the long run I'm envisioning a way to have all those running... but I am wondering whether it is less efficient or synergistic to have a combination of affiliate work + high-ticket services (as you had mentioned) The reason I am considering both is creating a mix of passive income & laying foundations for building physical-product brands. And a second reason is because for me, physical products have actually been incredibly helpful (surprising & like magic) and I just want to see people benefit from accessing it. I see a lot of dovetailing here. I hope this helps.
#1.2. How To Create Your First Piece Of Content After seeing @Liam Kircher take action after I challenged him to create content, I've decided to challenge every single person in this community who hasn't created their first piece of content yet. Make your way to the "How To Create Your First Piece Of Content" lesson in the classroom. You have until Sunday at 11:59 pm. Comment on this post for your public declaration. We have lots of people in the community that have been creating content for years now, and if that's you then congrats. You can sit this one out.
& I did do it. ❤️ It was based on THIS POST I MADE FOR Y'ALL in the group. SPEED INFORMATION GATHERING. The post is better than the video, honestly. But I have no problem doing both. Blasting content out by typing/word (where I can edit and make corrections) is pretty easy. I've just find the mental organization of thoughts while filming to be a little tough. I should probably get a faster computer if I'm going to cut / do edits, etc.
Youtube has age restricted it to 18 and to people that are signed into youtube, just because I talk about how it's bad for mens mental health to watch pron, I've just searched myself on a private browser and the video's thumbnail is just blank. Has anyone had this problem and does anyone know if there's anyway to fix it?
John, you wouldn't be trying to protect young people from harm when they're going to have a much easier time turning this around now, would you? Tsk, tsk. No, far better to funnel young people towards degenerate "NPC streaming" for the TikTok ➡️ O.F. pipeline (/sarcasm) (Edit: It's one of the weirdest trends I've seen 🤦♂️--- maybe DON'T go down this rabbithole to avoid 🧠 infection, but... it's just te emphasize the work we want to do is very much so needed) For real... 🤦♂️ ______ In any case, the better we learn the system... the better we can perform within it.

I’ve mentioned previously on a Skool about the fact that,”you probably shouldn’t worry about doings things perfectly” in your business… but I don’t know now. Yesterday I saw a tweet from Mr. Hormozi saying,”give everything away for free… and you’ll generate leads forever” or something… So I ask you, yes you. What’s your opinion on the fact that there are SOO many different ways of “behaving” in business? Ways of doing things. Because many conflict each other. A response would GENUINELY be much appreciated - coming from someone who’s already an over thinker. Riley.
I have thought a lot about this exact thing specifically with Hormozi, as one of the talks he goes over this was posted in the group. I don't actually think even Andrew for example gives away *everything* for free (in terms of just information), even as someone who aligns a lot of what he promotes and lives by with Hormozi's work ---------- however, clearly he does. Opening the mind to view everything with nuance and complexity seems to be key to really maximizing the leverage we gain over time. I'm not saying don't look at the POWER it gives you. I say, yeah, totally notice how powerful this is. But it's going to be different for some, rather than others. ____ I actually think new ways are being identified all the time... and we can notice and align with this by synching with our creative intelligence. The synthetic intelligence is synthesizing --- where we take combinations of what has worked. The creative aspect is where we can really innovate and build on top of things. To people who are really feeling lost... Yeah working in the "synthetic" manner is probably "safe" but I have a hunch that people can do a lot by learning to work with creativity / intuition with greater flow, joy, bliss, and ease ---- and I believe and I have seen that there are many ways to do everything. ____ Sam Ovens for so long said not to focus on content, when the META was ads. He said go high ticket. Well plenty of people have also realized tremendous success with medium and low-ticket offers... and eventually content (especially if you got in early) became something that could become the most monetizable and efficient, arguably, by 2023. ____ So this is a long rant, but in summary seems important to embrace some combination combination of - systems understanding / study META strategies / tactics + - reverse engineer these understandings to the core principles + - ability to piece together the things you know to model how they work in the future (ability to develop hypotheses based in models -- learn to test things in your head or on paper) + - logic / rationality / astute thinking - intution / creative thinking + - attention to detail + - big picture + - complexity + - nuance + - no-mind infinite intelligence
Making money through content creation is possible. But it's hard, and takes a long-time. If you're a beginner content creator, you know this more than anyone else. When I was in that stage I was constantly worrying I'd never make it. I questioned whether I was good enough. And it's tough to stay consistent when you're not seeing results. There are two groups of people in this community: 1. The big boys. Established creators/consultants/entrepreneurs making good money 2. The beginners. People who, no matter how hard they try, aren't seeing the results they want This message is for the second group. There's many people in this community that want to make a living in the creator economy, but are struggling because of how tough it is. I've been thinking about this for a while. But the thought came to the surface again when I watched @Ali Abdaal's last video. Ali was asked "Do you recommend being a creator as a career path?" His response: "Hell no." (For context, Ali has 2,000+ customers for his Part-Time YouTuber Academy, so I trust his answer.) Now, I know what you're thinking... "Fuck." But please, please don't think this way. There's a light at the end of the tunnel. In fact, there's a light at either end of the tunnel. LIGHT ONE: Just keep going Read the first sentence of this post again. Just because succeeding is hard and takes a long time, doesn't mean it's not possible. And once you make it, it's all worth it. Quitting shouldn’t be an option. LIGHT TWO: Earn to learn There’s a great article called the Ladders of Wealth Creation (see image attached). It explains there are four ladders to wealth creation: 1. Time for money 2. Service business 3. Productized services 4. Selling products It explains that “the potential earnings increase the higher up each ladder you climb. But the difficulty increases with each move as well.” Selling products, productized services, or starting your own service business is possible. But it’s hard, and it takes a long time.
@Benjamin Peters Maybe you don't have to be in the education system, but it sounds like you can find ways to make it work, too. That just got me thinking, if the education is actually valuable, maybe you could create content on that. Probably a great way to study.
Yesterday I made a post sharing the 5 lessons I learned from a $500m mastermind. This morning I revealed that someone actually took notes of all public conversations during the mastermind, which turned out to be 13,000+ words. And I said that, if 100 people wanted it, I'd release the full transcript for free. Well, less than 12 hours later, we did it. Ladies and gentlemen, here it is: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1AyeYqnJZcJN_fCA-RSnqjttfAfXnr10CceW-BOgkn5s/edit?usp=sharing Enjoy.
Okay. This was great... Got the chance to get through all of it, with a first go. I would summarize it and give all of my insights away here in the comments, but I'd rather use them to build. ✊🔥 ____ But because I still want to inspire people to do the most with this information: For people who want to know HOW to use information like this... and see how valuable this free stuff is, check out @Shivam Jha 's post. Maybe it's not purely about "content" but it is about mastery in related fields (consulting, educational problem-solving). I'm not sure everyone will 𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮 comprehend the amount of leverage being built. I'm currently looking up to Shivam as greatest inheritors of a value via total transformation brought out by the content in this skool group. You put enough of the right puzzle pieces together and you can build a bridge from Point A to Point B, solving valuable problems. Every lesson is not just one lesson. Every data point is not just about one thing. It is multidimensional. Context. Nuance. Lessons within lessons. Those who really try and don't give up --- and can really begin with the consciousness to see what is possible with accuracy of thinking --- will succeed. Just make sure you are clear about what your goal actually is... what you really want --- and there are pieces throughout here to make this happen. (I'm looking at this short-term gains as well as long-term content gains -- and having an idea of what's possible really helps) ____ So, thanks, Andrew. This really is pretty cool. I'll be keeping on keeping on.
Hey, Synthesizers! 👋🏼 I hope you're all splendid! I know there are a lot of pasty-white keyboard-kids in here (massive compliment by the way 😘)... So don't get too excited when you see the pics. But my wife and I have ALWAYS been huge on bringing people to our home when we do work with them. We feel this to be the best way to solidify relationships and authentically show we are also the people they expect us to be... face pulling weirdos by the looks of these pictures 😂 Anyhoo... It was REALLY exciting to have @João Dias over to stay with us for a few days 🙏🏻 He got to meet a small portion of our UK clients and celebrate one of many wedding anniversary parties at our home 💚 A lot of people talk a semi-decent good talk - but having people in your home, eating with you, your kids, friends and neighbours exposes you to a different level... A level that most will NEVER go. Why? Because they're full of BS. So, overall, it was nice to introduce @João Dias to that depth of personal exposure... And boy did he grow from it 😉 Here's to more meetups (sleepovers) ⚡️
