I’m so surprised how little votes Insta Reels/TikTok/shorts content got. For motivation I got to short form content within platforms. For learning I go to YouTube. I also use platforms like skillshare and coursera. Recently introduced to community hubs where I think would be the best place Learn and execute due to community reinforcement. 80% overall on YouTube. 20% between the rest.
Changing who you Subscribe to is a very high leverage decision. It takes 2 minutes, and can benefit you for years to come. After all... You Become who you Consume. --- So, in order for us all to improve our information diet, let's share who we subscribe to on YouTube. Find out by clicking here. Or on the left side of YouTube on browser. Or at the bottom of YouTube mobile. Comment below. I'll go first.
The All In podcast is a podcast with 4 billionaires. In one of their recent episodes they said: "In the future ALL Marketing and Advertising will be spent on Content Creation." They believe traditional business like McDonalds will fail. And be replaced by Creator led businesses, like MrBeast Burger. They also said: "In 20 years, 90% of business will be around personal brands." Crazy, right? And to remind you... These guys are billionaires. With jets, yachts, and wildly successful companies. More successful than Hormozi, Sam Ovens, Graham Stephan, or whichever other business guy you like. So when they say Content is the future, we should listen to them. And now that I think about it... Even Elon Musk, the richest man on earth, still believes creating content is a valuable use of his time. And just think about how valuable his time is. If what these guys are saying is true... This is the opportunity of our lifetime. And we're still the early adopters.
+1. I also believe there will be a huge uptick in community building needs for companies and their customers. I’m seeing it in the tech space left and right. Especially with companies that have a software or app with many users. Many have discords / slack groups for their community. But many are growing beyond that to platforms like skool for retention, QA, and to better understand their customers + their issues. Content + community = future Also, experts in particular areas of content and community are going to be high paying roles at these orgs. Im placing people for Community Lead roles for 80-120k base USD. A few years ago none of these types of roles existed. Wild stuff.
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
Btw bro - you should share it with everyone not just this community. Part of putting yourself out there is sharing it with EVERYONE (especially people you are most scared to share it with). I think you’ll be surprised at what people understand and don’t about what it took you to take that first step. .1% of all YouTubers get 100k or more subs. .02% of all get 1M. millions upon millions of people never even become a statistic. You became one. Now go build your business to 100k subs
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
I highly recommend going to a center where you can get blood work to analyze your overall nutrient density in your blood. This will help you understand why you’re lacking (or over consuming). This is the first step to identifying if the problem is physical (nutrient, mineral related) or psychological. I had many vegan friends, for example, who after getting a test realized they had a severe iron, omega-3 and b-12 deficiency. Felt off and super exhausted. One had to be out on an mineral IV. So, yeah, your routine and diet looks solid so before just changing what you it and how you eat - get tested.
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)
I came across this channel on YT called film booth. Great stuff we can probably all extract gold from and make our videos be seen more. Highly recommend. The only warning——I can’t seem to stop watching his videos…is it a mind meld Mr Spock?
I don't want this to sound whiny or bitchy. But I reflected quite some bit on YouTube and found something I want to share. Could be I'm wrong. The Brutality of YouTube is that there are NO LEVELS. To speak with an analogy: Imagine you are interested in Tennis and you decide to pick up a racket for the first time, to shoot some balls. And your first competitor is: ROGER FEDERER in full Wimbledon mode. That is what YouTube as a newbie feels like. You pick up your camera. Make your first video. Struggle with the editing or sound or light or the WiFi or whatever … finally you manage to put your video online … and your video goes up DIRECTLY against MrBeast or Casey Neistat or ScreenJunkies delivering their prime game. Because on YouTube we are all fighting for the SAME limited amount of attention. So there are no levels: little leagues, big leagues, pro league, etc. Understandably your own little video gets crushed by those pros and gets very little or no attention. And I think this can be very disheartening for a beginner. As I said: I don't want to bitch or moan. I don't have troubles with grinding work or brutal rejection. As an alumni of the Sam Ovens way of business, I know that brutal grind and facing massive rejection and resistance is part of the job. I'm OK with that. It's just that this is not communicated in regards to YouTube. It's mostly presented as this creative journey. But having wrong assumptions about a challenge will almost inevitably make you fail. That's why I wanted to share this here. What do you think about that? Am I missing something? Best, Carlos

@Fedor Shatukho I comment on whatever. Combining your daily posts with sending some connection requests to people who you would like to see your content such as potential customers or other like-minded folks helps you continue to grow your engagement. Posting on LinkedIn needs a purpose, not necessarily to monetize, but there needs to be a why. It can be as simple as "I want to get into the habit of posting something valuable daily" or "I want to get better at storytelling so I will post once a day". Something like that.
@Juan Carlos Recalde made a post about the brutality of youtube. he is right. YT is brutal. I went down a rabbit hole of watching "how to make it on YT content" and I wrote down 10 pages of notes. There were a few top things. I share it with all of you in this video: https://www.loom.com/share/a91e0a7e5c1546338750ab87c8bc8d7f
There are A LOT of similarities between video games and this Great Online Game. Here are 3 insights that I picked up from spending 10,000 hours climbing the ranks of Runescape. For context: I was obsessed with Runescape from from ages 10 to 18. I played at least 2-4 hours/day - ideally (a lot) more. I climbed the leaderboard and eventually became rank 4 in the world for a skill known as "Firemaking." under the username: Trev_Frank Attached are a couple videos showing me firemaking (some 'fans' screen recorded me) to show how repetitive this process was - and how obsessed I was. Here are 3 lessons I learned which I'm now applying to the great online game of entrepreneurship. 1) You gotta do WHAT you love - and what you love is typically what you're good at. I loved fire making. I lit fires all day. & I thought I was the GOAT from day 1. Now, I love synthesizing. I love simplifying concepts and sharing them and I think I'm pretty good at it, too. 2) You gotta do it HOW you love. My process for firemaking was very simple. Here was my process for becoming rank 4 in the world which I followed for YEARS: - Run to the bank teller to withdrawal logs - Run to the far end of the screen - Light the logs - Run back to the bank teller - Repeat this same process for HOURS (you can see this in the video attached) Now, for synthesizing, my process looks like this: - Study successful people in my niche - Write out an insight - Record insight on video - Send viewers to a freebie (pdf or mini course) containing more insights - Study successful people in my paid program When you love the process, there's no procrastination, because you genuinely deep down enjoy doing it. (I love writing posts like this for example, so much so, so even if this all gets deleted, I won't care because I love writing it more than I love publishing it.) When it comes to dialling in your process, everyone has their own flow and ideal way of doing things. All of the best athletes train differently.
Before starting Amazon, Jeff Bezos drew this idea out on a napkin about how to grow Amazon community. This became the operating system behind everything that they do, even their AWS business. Not that secret I suppose, but definitely worth staring at for a bit.
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
HIRING AN EDITOR: I swear it’s like this group can read my mind sometimes. Any synthesizers out there want to help me edit my videos? I’m looking for someone that can do YouTube and also take from longer form content and turn that into many reels/toks/shorts. Pretty standard stuff. if so, please send me a message. I am building a business around this and have setup a budget and timeline, so I’d like to work with someone who is ambitious, committed, deadline oriented and can “go left when everyone else is going right” with their creativity. My content is a cross around business/work, systems/monetization and tools/automation. Shoot me a message and please provide a link so your top edited video.
I wrote an article consisting of 1000 quotes, the best ones I could find. Yeah, I went through a lot of quotes for this one and have no life https://medium.com/@jonathanmichaelson/1000-deliberately-chosen-audacious-quotes-that-will-make-you-stand-taller-552c009eab2
This seems to work well so far: 1. Read your ideal viewer avatar 2. Go to https://randomwordgenerator.com/ 3. Keep your topic in mind ("focus" in my case) 4. Set a timer 30-60 min 5. Go all out, combine a random word with your topic and make a list 6. After the timer, do progressive summarization (Highlight highlighted highlights) with your avatar in mind (this means you go over the list 2-3 times, first bold, then highlight then callout) 7. Bonus: In notion drag the best ideas to the top Result 30 minutes brainstorm: 40 ideas 4 best ideas 5 good ideas 8 alright ideas 23 meh ideas
For anyone interested in Oblique Strategies, I've found two websites that offer a random digital "card" do be drawn when you visit the site. They are both the same content wise, just different UI. Check em' out: https://obliquestrategies.ca/ OR https://www.obliquestrategies.app/
Love the discussion here. I have a different approach to this. I guess I'll call it the "7 experiences of a highly effective me". It came to me when I asked myself "What if the day was focused around what I want to experience rather than the habits / routines I put in place?" So, I tried to create at least 7 experiences (some are the same day to day, some are different) but I know that throughout the day I will focus on experiencing these 7 things. Here are mine for today: 1) that post run feeling - in the US we call it the "Runners high" 2) a deal closing from someone on my team and experiencing their joy 3) the experience of a clean mouth LOL. brush, floss, and 4) love from a lover, friend or family member, or just feel pure love (i have two puppies so it's pretty easy to get some pure love) 5) the act of doing something scary or unknown to me, something I've never done, regardless of how simple it is 6) an act of dealing with a pain or trauma. Looking at my life and experiencing myself solving that dilemma (it takes time, but if you experience daily, you get thru it) 7) Feeling of eating something I know is going to be a SUPERFOOD for my body and it will thank me by the energy I get and how I feel physically. etc. You can call it a routine or not, doesn't really matter, but to be constantly aware of the experiences that I want to have in my day (not my life or a year), but just a day, really helps me stay grounded, in the moment and action oriented. Maybe that could work for you too, give it a try. 🤷♂️
I asked Midjourney, an AI artist neural network to draw a picture of Synthesizer Skool. I typed: synthesis, ideas, content creation, videos, posts, texts, learning, community --ar 16:9 Here's the result. Enjoy!

"He that would perfect himself in any art whatsoever, let him betake himself to the reading of some sure and certain work upon his art many times over; for to read many books upon your art produceth confusion rather than learning." - Old saying also noted these two verses below Ecl 12:12- And by these, my son, be further warned: There is no end to the making of many books, and much study wearies the body. Ecl 1:8 - For with much wisdom comes much sorrow, and as knowledge grows, grief increases. Now how do you determine that what you have learned is enough? Where do you draw the line between seeking more knowledge and sticking/using to what you already know?
You get what you spend most of Your time thinking and doing. If what you want is to grow your 💰 and 🧠 do this: Go thru your daily repetitive thoughts and current business process. - Identify the growth mindset related thoughts. Write them down. - Identify your revenue generating activities. Write them down. - Do and think mostly those things during each day, don’t worry about tomorrow. - Outsource the rest to VAs or automate via some kind of tech as quickly as possible. 🧨🧨🧨
