    Mainly on writing about crypto from the basics so that everyone can understand what is it and what is going on. :) I'll add a link to my introduction post here. :) https://www.skool.com/synthesizers/hello-there-general-kenobi

    Hello @Zahra Armand. It's nice seeing you here despite being so busy.

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! Read my post about it here: https://www.skool.com/synthesizers/impact-income-fun

I have a birthday coming up and I’m wondering what to get. What are the items/ experiences that have brought you the highest ROI? Can be anything.

    For me it was a course (insights + thoughts + interviews) I was rather hesitant to purchase as it was rather expensive - about 2 monthly salaries back in the days when I was starting my more professional journey in crypto - but it was definitely worth it. I can say it was a gamechanger for me. I think I've heard this in one of Alex Hormozi's YT shorts where he said to invest your money in things you believe will, at least, give back the value.

    @Griffin A. Hamilton Unfortunately, the course was not in English so I guess this one's out. But you can check out The Daily Ape / Panda on Telegram - almost everyday you have a lot of links to twitter posts and threads about crypto. There is not much on YT that I'd recommend as mostly it is just shilling in some way. Coin Bureau still makes videos but I'd say it's more about getting overall knowledge than going into details.

Lately, I've been interacting with @Daniel Reynolds & @Siebren de Vos on Twitter. It's been so much fun, but sometimes they don't show up in my feed. So, I created a Synthesizer Twitter List to see their Tweets. (and yours) Add your Handel to this post, and I'll add you to the Synthesizer Twitter List. Cheers

#15 Books Everyone Should Read Before They Die While going through the top 15 list of books, I wonder which way do you usually consume? And why? For me, I consume the contents on my Kindle before sleeping. The reason? I find it light and could be more cost-effective over the long run. Nevertheless, I will still buy the paperback version if I like the books very much.

    A follow up question - Do you make notes in books or highlight parts? I personally use pencil to highlight parts or key words and add a #1 on the margin to see how many highlights I've made and it's far easier to navigate through book then.

It's quite the work of art. Optimised towards Synthesizer Mastery: high impact, high income, and fun. Interested?

    Consume a lot of quality content + observe the trends and broader picture = making the dots I try to connect in the articles OR <if I do specified research> Look for the info that's closest to the source (whitepapers/GitHub/official articles instead of 2nd hand opinions or biased research) + make a list (and consume) of all the sources I will need - then prepare an outlay of the article I want to produce - then just go step by step through the outlay/list of contents I've written down

Hi! Just wanted to post a win of mine! It's the third time I got 2nd place in writing contest on HackerNoon! And as before - there is a $ prize included which is even greater win for me It's such a great feeling when you see others appreciate your work. 😌 I wish you all fellow Synthesizers huge wins in your craft! I'll post a link to the article if you want to read it. It's about taking advantage of bear market / adversary market conditions - TL;DR - learn + network with ppl + be active in your field + build reputation when others flee https://hackernoon.com/is-the-bear-market-a-blessing-for-the-wise?ref=hackernoon.com

I want to build a content creation routine and implenent one excercise. I'll get a random image and try my best to come up with a joke, a post idea, a meme etc. The first step is to get a weird random picture on demand. Do you know any services which can do that?

    If you feel more confident with writing at the beginning, then write. It will help you organize your thoughts on a given topic and... you can always make videos in the future on the basis of what you have written. You have ready-to-go video scripts in a form of a blog.

I've decided to create my personal website based on Notion thanks to @Shivam Jha's challenge. Here's what I came up with in one hour: https://fedor-shatukho.super.site/ What would you add? Share your personal sites too, so that I can take inspiration from.

    Oh btw are those going to be one-person episodes or are you going to have talks with some people? Btw.... It just came to my mind - What about establishing a YouTube channel where we can have podcasts with Synthesizers from our group - but those who have reached some lvl - let's say 4 or 5. And those podcasts would be talks about the niche someone is in and his habits of content creation and everything connected to it - or just free talks around the niche / synthesizing? How does it sound as an idea?

    @Owen Sheasby True, that's why I've said about the separate YouTube channel to separate those who are already successful from those who are in the middle to document/share the path/struggle/hopes/experience/wisdom etc.

Hello again! I'm Miling. I am scared of the idea of working for a job or career that has very less significance in the lives of daily going people. After living through a period of self-learning and reflection I was motivated to make YouTube videos, but I've realized that I'm more comfortable in writing out my thoughts and ideas; therefore I've now decided to start and write blogs. Thank you Andrew for this platform and your support. I also thank all the members of the community for their active participations that is truly inspiring us all. Let's do this!

    Welcome :) I hope you will find your niche soon

#Synthesizing Intro Hey Guys, So I love learning about blockchain projects and keeping up to date with new investment opportunities in the crypto space. Many people don’t understand crypto (and assume they can’t) and are missing out on opportunities for financial freedom. My goal is to communicate the potential of DeFi, NFTs, blockchain and crypto in general in order to help us all realize a better world.

    As for me it's something like that: YouTube - 30% - as most of the content I consume is longer than 1h Blog Posts + Research Articles - 30% - It takes time to find valuable information and confirm sources Twitter - 10% - it's the hub for crypto, so there's a lot of information there; however, I created separate lists, so it's far quicker to get the info I need/want Books + Podcasts - 30% (or more)- it's just an additional thing as it's hard to find something useful about my niche in standard books :D When it comes to YouTube - I listen to some podcasts there to see the visuals (I remember more - visual type here) and make notes. The rest of podcasts I consume while driving or walking, so it might be more than 30%, but it's in my free time so...

Synthesizing is beautiful. - It changed my life - It can change yours - It can change the world So I want to spread the word. SYNTHESIZER PODCAST COMING SOON.

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)

    For me it's something like No.3 - 1st one is okay but the background makes me feel they're dead <heaven stuff>, maybe if you changed the background to smth more like a path to success than heaven as heaves might be ambiguous <at least to me> But 3rd one gives me a vibe of being successful as your idols and you're seating by the round table - so everyone is equal <you're showing you're kinda successful and equal to those guys> Does it make any sense? 😅

I have been following SuperEyePatch Wolf and his YT for more than a year, maybe two, and as Andrew Posted YT channel recommendations I thought I'd add this one video he made. It's divided into two parts: 1st - YouTube shillers and paid courses that promises whatever you can imagine - it's rather obvious but worth watching What REALLY struck me... and I'll be honest with you, it made me rethink my goals, my strategy, my life... is the 2nd part of the video and stories of people there. If you haven't got time for a 2h long video, just watch the 2nd part and take some time to digest it. AND... don't think about it as a discouragement or anything like that. I just wanted to share how brutal it can be, and devastating to some if you haven't got clear strategy and some alternatives if things go wrong. I hope you'll enjoy it. Also, share your thoughts after watching the video as I think it will be valuable to everyone here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3xSJuoUnN8

    On the note of Bruce - I've read his biography by Matthew Polly called "Bruce Lee A Life" and it was quite a good read. In some way explained how his past formed him and how ambitious he was.

Haaaiii! Just wanted to share that I made my first $ online by writing! 🤯 Hope I'll see more of you achieving this goal too! Good Luck!

    @Andrew Kirby I have a couple of projects I want to explore and create those research articles and just extend my portfolio and experience. It would be nice to either work for someone or just be a freelancer and create those on demand. I have reached some people I value in the world of crypto and broader finance to share my work and see if they find value in it. I think it's Alex Hormozi who said that we should reach people we want to work for/with but also creating some value for them prior and sharing it.

#15 Books Everyone Should Read Before They Die If I may, I would also add a book by Garry Kasparov "How Life Imitates Chess: Making the Right Moves, from the Board to the Boardroom". It's one of the greatest books I have ever read. It shows you how you can strategize your life and your decisions. Highly recommend!

    It's like by trying to please everyone you are losing your individuality/identity. Not to mention that quite often those who pursue the goal to satisfy everyone bring little to no value and get forgotten quite fast.

I write a blog in Telegram. Now it has around 600 subscribers. You can see on the screen how positive the subscribers' reaction is. This platform is perfect for any kinds of blogs and it resembles a newsletter, since there's no feed. The rules of the game are different. Let me know what you think about my results and if you consider them worthy, I can share my experience about this social nerwork.

    I might be mistaken, but as far as I have heard Telegram is quite popular in countries like Russia, Belarus and Ukraine - far more popular than in Western Europe. I've heard this opinion in some podcast about OSINT and related stuff. Would you agree @Fedor Shatukho or is it an overgeneralization?

  • 1 like • Aug 3

    @Andrew Kirby I used to use WhatsApp but since FB bought it I stopped using it. When it comes to Telegram, it's very convenient and popular - I have to admit. But it is not the first go-to app for those who prefer to stay anonymous or pseudo-anonymous since you have to link it with your phone number - in the EU it's not so easy to have a burner as each phone number has to be registered with some personal ID. There are ways to acquire a number that's not tied to you but it is either illegal or on the verge of being legal. It's also better to use discord in browser instead of using a desktop app. However, in their policy they say, although not explicitly, that even if you want your data to be erased by filling a form or even taking legal steps, they don't have to do it if they don't want to. It's just some info if someone didn't know. I personally find such privacy stuff incredibly interesting.

It might be a rather silly question, but since I am quite highly introverted and socially awkward the idea of networking is like quantum physics to me. 😂 So my question is... Have you also struggled with something like that? Any practices or tips that made you overcome it? Or maybe how you embraced your weirdness and took advantage of it? Feel free to respond in DMs if you prefer.

    @Andrew Kirby HackerNoon is not as well established as HackerNews (less follows - more people can publish their stories as you don't have to be a "proven expert" in the field which is the case in HackerNews quite often. On the other hand HackerNoon is more open to new people and ideas making it far more interesting place to be, at least for me. Also, I'd say it is more "user friendly" site and far more developed (more like Technical Medium than just another info feed site like HackerNews). A person who is very technical Twitter individual recommended HackerNoon as a platform for publishing and finding interesting articles. I haven't got much experience with HackerNews so take my opinion with a pinch of salt.
