    @Andrew Kirby Great episode! Looking forward to listening further ones! Actually this episode made me thinking about my story and how I can represent it on an authentic way. I would like to suggest one idea for a next topic: There was a moment when you were laughing about your first YouTube content - I understand why you did that, but hopefully won't be misunderstood by people who are just gathering courage to put out their first content ever. Having said that, I think it would be great to make an episode about why is better to start with a later funny content than not starting ever.

    @Andrew Kirby I can imagine you creating a great podcast (with video, so shared on YouTube too).

I stumbled on this article today, and I think it is relevant here: YouTube, the Great Radicalizer (New York Times, 2018) Basically, the theory is, that in hopes of getting the users hooked, the YouTube recommendation engine constantly ups the stakes. This means, recommended videos become more and more "radical" the longer the auto-play function runs. This goes across all topics. The recommendations become more and more "extreme": Eat healthy >> Vegetarian >> Vegan Jogging >> Marathon >> Ultra-Marathon Make Money >> Become a Millionaire >> Become a Billionaire Donald Trump >> Fascism >> Holocaust Deniers Joe Biden >> Socialism >> Communism You get the idea. Psychologically it makes total sense and I agree with the author, that this can't be healthy, considering that the world is consuming a collective of one billion hours on YouTube per day. What do you think about this radicalization theory?

    @Juan Carlos Recalde I think it is people psychological behaviour to go on the way of radicalisation. They just seek to confirm they beliefs in any topic, so they tend to go more radical to find proof. YouTube algorithm just helps them to do so. Critical thinking is more important than ever.

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/

    @Alex Demirel Health is extremely important. People really feel after turning 40. :) Your video is great and full of useful information. Congrats!

These apply for hosting or being a guest. Some apply to both. ◾ Meet some amazing people (perhaps like-minded, but it's also good to talk to people with different viewpoints). Build relationships. Learn the lessons life taught them. You can get some great insights and share them with others. Win, win. Their audience may also then check you out. ◾ More depth. In this age of instant gratification it is refreshing to have longer conversations. Less width, more depth ◾ An opportunity to put yourself out there without selling anything. People get to know you more personally (mostly applies as a guest). ◾ Opportunity to chop pieces out and create short form content. Use that to drive more traffic to your brand/ podcast/ business. You can make content out of learning from and talking to other interesting people. Sounds good to me.

    That's true @Owen Sheasby . And if there's a quality talk on the production side, consuming knowledge from podcasts is one of my favourite way. I don't know why, but podcasts seem to me the digital legacy of reading quality newspapers. I especially like to listen to them when driving, as driving is kind of automatic, so my brain can focus on the topic.

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.

    @Pascal Polleunus Great insight! I'm just reading a book from Paul Jarvis called Company of One. He also emphasises the importance of understanding your customers. However, what you do: giving respect is a whole another level! Congratulations. I will also apply this principle. It's a no brainier: Respect your customer/consumer.

Hey 👋 I'm work on growing my German YouTube agency and now that I've won my first few customers, I want to hire my first employee. The employee should do things as an assistant and ideally also help out with the service itself. How do I find good employees, and what do I have to pay attention to? What would be your recommendation for me? Thank you for your help!

    @Sebastian Siedlecki Hiring can be tricky. I recommend you don't loose yourself in searching for unicorns, and don't think in long term. Try to hire the best for the time you need him. Don't be surprised that after few months the situation will change. Either your business or his drives or circumstances. Always keep him informed and involved in the strategy of your business.

    @Sebastian Siedlecki the pleasure is mine. I’m glad that you find it inspiring!

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.

    Welcome @Stephen G. Pope ! I think your contribution will be a great asset for many of us.

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

    @Obai Othman Great work, man! You have an authentic and calming personality that comes through. It will touch and reach many people. Keep going! And don't forget, the apprentice choses the master, always. Just like you have found your YouTube mentors, other people will find you. Just give them the opportunity!

This means that you have to “surpass all others.” This means to outshine everybody else in your category. To deliver the best experience. To have the best interests at heart for your audience. But how do you do this? This is a mindset shift that I learned from the great Jay Abraham. Here are the 5 steps to do this: 1. You must value service above all else. Don't try to maximize the value of each transaction. Instead maximize the value you deliver. 2. Deliver an extraordinary experience. Over-deliver. Be remarkable. Be worth talking about. Give an extraordinary experience to those that interact with you. So do everything the other brands in your niche do to serve clients, and take it one step further. 3. Become the top source of education in your niche. Write. Speak. Do everything you can to communicate with your audience. Focus on being helpful. Point them toward opportunities. Provide solutions before they spend a cent with you. The more education you do, the better. 4. Be somebody. Look at who gets the most attention. Watch what they do. Take notes, learn from them, and apply them in your business and in your niche. Be a celebrity within your niche. Be the BIG fish in your SMALL pond. 5. Communicate often. Stay on top of your entire industry’s mind. Stay in front of your audience as much as possible. Do it with helpful and educational content. Don’t be a pest. Be ever-present.

    I like the idea of shifting the focus from your product to your customer. I just finished reading a book called Company of One from Paul Jarvis. He also enhancing the importance of the customers throughout his book. This whole idea resonates with me and I think it should be the purpose of all Synthesisers.

Did you know that in most communities, only 1% are creators, 9% are contributors and 90% are lurkers? What does this mean for you? That just by creating content you'll be on the top 1% of your niche. Let this sink in: Just by creating content you're already in the 1%. Now you just need consistency. This is called the 1% Rule and was discovered by the bloggers Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1%25_rule

    Thanks @Esteban Constante to point to this rule. What is most interesting that is not a big magic to be in the 1%. I think many of the creators should overcome self-esteem issues first (that bloody imposter syndrome) and they are good to go. Yep, I'm talking about myself, too.

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?

    In my opinion you should start building your personal brand. It means you have your name and face with all the skills you have now and will learn in the future. Steve Jobs was a great guy - unbelievable asshole, but a great visionary seeing the future clearly. But your own face will deliver more trust from your consumers. And trust will make them coming back to you for more advice. Pick whatever skill fits your personality and own brand. Know yourself first. Start from there, and build around.

    @Michael Dean I'm also big fan of Steve Jobs - I have read his biography and I like how he was approaching things. (Like organising cables in computers even if they are not visible.) What is funny, that I also started with lurking here, and I used this picture for my profile before switching to my real face. 😁

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.

    The most valuable thing for a synthesiser: book! However, my most valuable purchase in my life was a MacBook Pro. I purchased it in 2011 and was retired last year, so did make me a great 10 years of service. Since we use computers for our work, never negotiate on its quality, buy the best one you can afford. It will silently support you throughout your journey. The other thing you might consider, (don't laugh) is a mattress. A comfortable one, what you love. We spent a quite bit of time sleeping, and having a great rest is also key for Synthesizers to keep our mind fresh.

What is the first thing you are going to do when you reach financial freedom?

    @Andrew Kirby this is a well established idea of creating a brand that will last long time. It was the idea hooked me on to this group. @Andrew Kirby please keep thing going on. And on and on. Consistently. Not depending on any platform.

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

    @Juan Carlos Recalde I am now reading a book called Blue Ocean Strategy - it's all about a concept, how you can make your competitors irrelevant. The approach is researched and used in the corporate world, but the principles can be used on a small business level too. I recommend you to take a look.

    @Corey Bennett Boardman @Juan Carlos Recalde Yep, there we go!!! At 2:04 in the video, you can see a graphics called strategy canvas, that is developed by the authors of Blue Ocean Strategy. So Jake also used that approach. https://youtube.com/clip/UgkxNgouDYiX0GRQvfjYbWulS-vEFlBYER6h

I wrote a great newsletter today to my subscribers, so I wanted to share it with you guys We all know these people, who doesn't want to face reality, so they make up lies about it I cant make money, and become rich, so every rich person is evil I'm not fat, I'm just plus sized I have ADHD so my procrastination cant be cured all these people just got lucky courses are scam These type of people actively shooting in foot themselves or try to lower others, so they will feel better but why? because their ego cant handle reality, cant handle the truth, that they fucked up these people are at a different level of procrastination, they not just avoid the task, but they avoided it for so long, that they started to convince themselves, that taking action would be actually bad just think about how fucked up this is ... examine your life, is there any field where you do the same? were you lying to yourself? probably you believe that you are better then you actually are or that you know more then you actually know spend a few minute examining your life today, because maybe you will find out something interesting ​ See you soon

    I was that kind of person too. Unfortunately. The reason I cannot blame, because I was there too. People have broadly different background. You never know what kind of history they have, how they are ended up being a jerk. We as Synthesizers have to be careful, how to approach them. First of all, we need to understand. Do not blame, rather try to understand their background, and try to figure out where they are coming from. In the other hand - we should be apply the principle called: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck. (Should be familiar from Mark Manson) If anyone is interested, I am open to share more details about why I was that kind of person, who was blaming the circumstances, and thinking that I never cannot be rich...

    @Mark Ladson Unfortunately, yes. I'm also struggling to keep news out of my life. Indeed, it's like an addiction.

Hello, I recently realized that I have a problem expressing my thoughts and ideas when speaking to other people. I can’t find the right words or the right way to express what I’m thinking, my mind just goes blank and eventually the person I’m talking to can’t fully understand what I mean. Does anyone experienced this and solved this problem? I have been trying too talk as much as I can with people, but somehow I can’t figure this out. I also started reading. Any ideas or advice is welcome. Thanks

    @Calancea Dragos First of all, no worries - just like you and @Corey Bennett Boardman , I am in the same situation. Corey has great advices, I'm trying to practice them as well. There is one more thing that can help is to understand your personality. If you go to https://www.16personalities.com/ you can fill their test to know which personality type you belong to. Professional coaches are also suggesting to use this tool, as it quite good for personality analysis. Once you have an understanding of your personality traits, you will understand why you behave some way in certain situations. I am a Turbulent Debater, which means my mind is constantly working, debating ideas etc. The description states, that this is the reason I hardly express myself to others. Once I understood this, I can accept and work on tools (see Corey's toolset above) to handle such situations. Hope this helps.

    @Antonio De Nes You definitely have one more subscriber now. YouTube is not my area of expertise, I'm rather in Small Business Strategy. So, your content is valuable for me. Keep up posting great lectures, focused in 5-8 minutes, improve quality step by step and stay consistent. You will grow big, I'm sure! Just one quality thing I noticed: When you record the speech, there is a big space above your head when talking. Just move the camera a bit down, so you fill the whole screen, without extra space. The ceiling is not that important. 😁

I watched this video yesterday about how this fellow creates online courses. He goes into groups on Facebook that are on the topic he is interested in. While there notices the problems the members of the group is struggling with. Then he will look at content that solves these problems, (blogs, videos) and from the best ones, creates his own course, extracting and rewriting or making new video content, packaging and selling the courses. So he may watch 5 different videos on the topic of "creating video style content with a smartphone" and from this create the new course "The 5 Best Ways to Make Compelling Videos With Just a Smartphone" Would this be considered synthesizing? He is doing this on all sorts of topics, without being an expert, per se, on any of them....

    Yes, I agree with Juan. It all depends if he creates something genuine, or just copying parts and reassembling the puzzles. I believe Synthesizers should build on existing knowledge, but also add something new and personal to the mix. If he does this on many topics, I doubt he can be expert on any of those fields. Trying to do everything eventually leads to do nothing. Or at least nothing special. Once Tim Ferriss was asked if someone should be specialist or generalist. His answer was: well, a "specialised generalist". I think this is another way of approaching synthesis. You take the general knowledge, and create something special.

    @Jeff Harrison I think definitely, yes. Producing is as important as consuming! Well, actually even more important. That is where magic happens, that is where You and your Value comes into picture.

I'm putting everything together for my first painting video (inspired by the concept of Conformity), and I'm trying to decide if putting text on the screen is enough. Do you think it's important to have my actual voice describing the concept and narrating what I'm doing? I just.. I don't like my speaking voice that much, and especially not right now when I'm all nasally and gross cause I have Covid lol If it's important to have my voice, I'll just record video because I can't let my voice face the world alone. It's real bad. Plus, I don't have a sick accent like many of you do. I literally have a sick accent, omg. I just realized what I said after I wrote it hahaha okay, thanks for any/all input :)

    Hi @Anessa Ryce , I agree with all the above. Everyone finds their own voice "strange" on records. It's absolutely normal, as you get to used to it as you hear "from inside". I personally prefer voiceover on videos. Make a couple of tracks and try to play with your voice. As you do it, you will get familiar and can shape in the way you will like it.

    @Anessa Ryce You're welcome, it's great if you keep trying! And also, don't delete these trials. Keep them for yourself, you will be laughing a lot some time later when re-listening them. 😁

Instead of watching basic TV, I want to find good YouTube channels that teach interesting lessons on things like psychology, philosophy, history… Got any recommendations? Ideally long format and not the traditional “documentary” that tends to build up to nothing with no real lessons.

    In the last couple of months I was educating myself on healthy lifestyle. I find Dr. Sten Ekberg's channel one of the most valuable on this topic.

I was pondering this morning. 🧐 I find "creating content for yourself" a great advice to find your authentic voice and to build a like-minded audience. But it raises a question for me. If I create content for myself now, there is a chance I will stay in my comfort zone. So how can we take this one step further? Who is the person outside of our comfort zone? I think my answer is: create content for your future self. For the person who is more developed, more wise than you at this moment. But still it's you - the person who you would like to become. So before hitting the publish button, ask yourself: will my future self be proud of this content? (And of course I don't mean to postpone publishing forever! Just one more round of review for your future self.) What do you think, guys?

2 minutes ago I came across a tweet by Naval, he basically says "Write to learn, not to teach." , his Philosophy is so thoughful but I have a conflict between this tweet and a synthesizer's role, we have to teach people through written words, (as a writer) but Why does he said that??? there is any other philosophy around this Naval' Tweet? Naval:'s Tweet here and the stage 3 of being a synthesizer is to teaching people. haha! Can't we write to teach them ? and writting for just learning?🧐 That's a stupid question but I want to discover it a little bit I want to deeply understand this tweet, and I need your help. So excited ! This is my first post in this community, my english is not so good. But I will try my best to follow you guys here. That's awesome😎

    @Allan Rousselle great how you phrase it: to aim creating for "audience of one". Back in time I have created music - and people asked me how I can make it that a lot of people will like. I always said, if there will be only one people who is touched by any of my songs, it has been worth it to create it.

    @Son Nguyen It's my pleasure! I'm happy that it was helpful.

Hi All, @Andrew Kirby Thanks for the invitation to the community. I'm happy to see such a great group of excellent people. I can absolutely relate to the idea of synthesising, I'm always eager to learn and explore new horizons. I'm 43 now and I started to draft a new business idea - pretty much based on synthesising knowledge, adding my personality and taste to the mix, and explore some innovative ideas. I'm jealously looking at the energy of the younger generation. I know it's not too late for me to start anything new, however I progress slower that I would like to (you know, family and existing job, that I need to keep until my business forms and works well - which I believe it will). Therefore I'm looking for people, who are in similar situation - maybe they can give some good advice, how to progress better - not risking any exhaustion or burn out. Any ideas are welcome. You guys keep up doing the great work, and @Andrew Kirby thanks again for your commitment to contribute to this community!

    @Andrew Kirby Thanks! It certainly creates balance. When I was younger I always looked for company of older people to learn from them. Now I'm realising that I look for company of younger people who are energetic and driven. Wisdom and energy creates a healthy mix for moving things forward.

I love to play around with ideas, challenging the status quo and always looking for more wisdom.
