Getting Rejected 👎 By Andrew Was The Best Thing For Me
So, I went back and forth if I was going to share this. Frankly, I wasn't sure anyone would care to read it (and it hurt my poor little feelings at the time). However, I am about doing the hard things to help others, so here goes... When @Andrew Kirby first started his mentorship program here, I applied, got my interview, and never heard sh!t. I realized after a week or so, I had been rejected. And I can say this probably was the best thing that could have happened to me! See, after I cleaned up the deflated balloons and ripped streamers at my pity party 🎉 I had a "coming to" moment, where I realized no one, but myself, was ever going to get me to succeed, unless I started to buckle down and do the hard $hit myself. I also had a "fu€k it" moment too... an "I'll show him" thought, which is ridiculous because who the fak am I... I am not remotely on his radar. But whatever! It's what I needed at the time, to fuel my fire. Fast forward some months now, and I had now launched my YouTube channel, built a brand, pivoted, and then built my coaching business from the ground up... ALL ON MY OWN, WHILE WORKING A HIGH PRESSURE SALES JOB FULL-TIME, AND BEING A MOM AND MILITARY SPOUSE!!! Next week I launch my BETA program and begin my cold calling and funnels. I have posted weekly on YouTube (a promise I made myself starting January 2024) and just wrote my goal to quit my job by June (wish me luck). In realizing the world doesn't owe me $hit, realizing I was the one who had to do the hard stuff to get where I wanted to be, rearranging my life to find the time to do the stuff that has no rewards yet, staying sober, and cutting everything out that wastes time and has no benefit, I am finally here... my "I'll show you" moment 🤣 which is not even remotely part of my motivation today and feels ridiculous writing it even. So thank you @Andrew Kirby for rejecting me. Though I know you could have made me get here faster and better under your tutelage, I don't think I would have appreciated proving to myself (and to my family) that this 50-Year Old lady can do anything she wants to do! And I hope in sharing this, it helps someone who has been watching from the sidelines, start the steps to make positive changes in their lives too. You can do it... Now go prove it!

@Andrew Kirby oh no need to apologize! I completely understand the launch of something new and how hard it is to remember to do everything. And honestly, best thing that could have happened to me!
Anyone here from Canada?
More specifically, from near Toronto?

Yes, I am!
Any Thomas Frank Notion Template Users here? ALSO How do ANY/ALL of you organize your content & projects?
𝗧𝗟;𝗗𝗥: If you do, please raise your hand & let me know whether you're using Ultimate Brain or Creator's Companion, I will probably ask you questions from time to time if you let me because I prefer chatting with Synthesizer members about this stuff. :) __________ 𝗕𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗴𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱 / 𝗠𝘆 𝗖𝘂𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗣𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗲 (𝘔𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘭𝘦𝘯𝘨𝘵𝘩𝘺 𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘵 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘢𝘯𝘺𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘸𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘧𝘰𝘭𝘭𝘰𝘸 𝘢𝘭𝘰𝘯𝘨): So Thomas Frank, for notion, sells the products Ultimate Brain (task manager & information organizer) as well as Creator's Companion (Content Creation Organization). Disclaimer, 𝙄 𝙙𝙤𝙣'𝙩 𝙧𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙙 𝙖𝙣𝙮𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙜𝙤 𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙗𝙪𝙮 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙨𝙚 because I think they can be a little tricky to use until every element "clicks". In my experience it doesn't 𝒏𝒆𝒄𝒆𝒔𝒔𝒂𝒓𝒊𝒍𝒚 make perfect sense out of the box, and I think it might be more intuitive if you start using notion to simply start it like a linked note tool from scratch, and learn as you go. I had bought both of those, and they've been sitting in my notion, and I've been using a few features of it here and there, very slowly. It's taken me time to actually want to integrate them into my life. My idea is, actually build content plans here within the templates with the aim that it will make it easier to keep thoughts organized. Andrew's advice of basically "use new tools 𝘼𝙎 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙣𝙚𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙢" and also a bit of a notion learning curve applied. My brain didn't synchronize with them originally, and I don't know if it will become second nature, but I'm finding wisdom in organize things this way as I'm working on some execution.

My most performing video on my new channel is on a notion template I made that works with the 12 Week Year Book/Concept. And "best performing" for me is 1500 views so far. But I use Notion for everything!!! I have built an entire command center for myself. I love it!
i made $10,000/month 6 times it's skill not luck
I recorded this a while ago and thought I'd share it! Let me know what you think?

This was the exact video I needed! I have just started my YouTube channel with four videos and I have just started my business, having set up my website, and lead magnets to draw in my ideal customer. However I was flip-flopping between three ways to monetize and watching your video gave me an "aha" moment that I may experiment with and see how it does. Much appreciated. But am I the only person that didn't find the video afterwards that you mention at the very end? Or was that supposed to be the link in your description to Alex's challenge?
