I love masterminds. The best phases of my life have all been after I joined a mastermind. . - It was a mastermind that encouraged me to upload my first YouTube video (Only God knows where I’d be now if I hadn’t). - It was a mastermind that embedded in me the principles needed to grow my YouTube channel to 600,000+ subs. - And it was a mastermind that helped me how to grow from $2,000/month to $30,000/month in six months. And then later brought me all the way to financial freedom (peak $100,000/month). (I talk about these masterminds in this, and this video.) . It seems that whenever I join a good mastermind, my life has a severe upgrade. I’m not 100% sure why masterminds are so effective for me. But whatever the answer, but one thing has always been clear to me: When the time is right, I need to start a mastermind. And now is that time. . Introducing: SYNTHESIZER UNIVERSITY. Entry requirements: - You are a Consultant earning $10,000+/month - Or an Educational Content Creator with 10,000+ subscribers/followers (If you don't meet these requirements, sorry.

@Bru Capellà has now reached 100,000 Subscribers on his YouTube channel. To emphasise how crazy this is I've attached a picture of 100,000 people. He creates content about masculinity in the Spanish speaking market. Here's his channel. I met Bru when he joined my mastermind Synthesizer University. He had been creating content for three years and was at around 40,000 subscribers. Since joining he's blown up to 100,000 subscribers in just 4 months. And he cracked 1,000,000 views in a month for three months in a row! But I really can't take credit. Bru is wildly driven, hard-working, and understands his niche incredibly well. And @Bru Capellà I want to speak directly to you. This is just the beginning for you. You are destined for greatness. And you're in the perfect vehicle to make that destiny a reality. Keep working 💪 So once, again, a huge congrats to Bru! And a firework GIF to celebrate
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!
@Andrew Kirby gotcha so with audience size we typically look at subscribers/views objectively, for audience quality you look at things more subjectively? Or is there an objective metric we could use to measure audience quality? (Like perhaps w emails u could look at open rate...)
Describe it in ONE WORD, or a short sentence if you’d prefer, what you feel when you consume my content. Whether it’s tweets, my posts here in Synth School, or my YouTube videos… I’m curious to hear your answers. Please drop a comment before you read the other comments (so you’re not unconsciously biased).
On this day (Dec 31st) in 2009 I was your average joe blow brokie. (see attached photo below) I had zero clue what I was going to do for a career, income, life. Then, in 2010 I learned about the law of attraction thx to this YT vid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8x4sVR67wCk I wrote an unrealistic list of what I wanted (make money online, live in the tropics, etc) and in 2011, made a new years resolution to make it happen or die trying. In 201 I started travelling using credit cards, and in 2014 I made my first dollar online... And then in 2015 I tweeted about it on FB. (see attached photo below) People started asking me how I was affording my travels, and that's when I started teaching people how to create & sell digital info products like courses, coaching, memberships, etc. I've since gone on to make over $2,000,000 teaching that. Here's my advice for 2023: - Write out what you want. Be as unrealistic as possible - the key here is to write out something that genuinely EXCITES you. Excitement is your inner guidance system telling you you're on track. - See yourself already having it. Having a vision helps give your feeling direction. - Feel yourself already having it. Act as if you have it now. The stronger your feeling, the stronger your magnetic attraction will be. - Consider it done. There's nothing left to do but whatever action you naturally feel like taking :) "The question is often asked: What should be done between the assumption of the wish fulfilled and its realization? The answer is nothing. It's a delusion that, other than assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled, you can do anything to aid the realization of your desire." - Neville Goddard
@Robert Timmons haha, yes keyword: "once"! before u realize it, you can just feel like a feather floating in the wind. life feels like it's happening TO you. once you become aware though... life happens through you, and for you ;)

I've been earning over $10,000/month online for the last 3 years, and here's the truth: having a $10,000/month+ business is a simple balancing act. at all times, you need 4 core pillars dialed in: 1. A great offer 2. Great content (which grows your audience) 3. A simple sales process 4. A great delivery process (which comes from a great team) And u need to keep updating them so they don't become out of date. Now at the same time as balancing those 4 pillars, you as the CEO need to be focused, which means constantly scanning your life and environment and removing distractions as they come up. this means not checking ur phone as soon as u wake up... this means setting aside 2-3 hours a day to do nothing but WORK on a predetermined task and it's strange how, as hard as running a business already is, a lot of us unconsciously make it harder than it needs to be by complicating it... tiktok today, instagram tomorrow, youtube yesterday, free community this, affiliate that, headline this, thumbnail that, shiny object where, new guru who, membership whut, low ticket wow, black friday can't resist... there's a never ending pit of 'i should do's' when you lose focus on your 4 core pillars. if you really step back, take a deep breathe, you can simplify your business - forever. but just like meditation, where you have to keep coming back to the breath... in business you have to keep coming back to the 4 core pillars. 1. How's your offer? 2. How's your content? 3. How's your sales process? 4. How's your delivery? if you can nail those 4 core pillars, in that order, you'll win. because ultimately, all you need to succeed with this great online game is great content that pitches a great offer. from there, you just need a simple sales process people can go through (like a check out page or a calendar page so people can book a call) now ur making money! once you're making money, you just need to take some of that money and pay people (team mates) to help make your content, sales process, and delivery as fun and effortless and efficient as possible, both for you, and your clients.
Here's what the journey ahead looks like: Step 1: Make your first piece of content Step 2: Get in the habit of creating Step 3: Make your first dollar Step 4: Get 10,000 followers Step 5: Make $10,000/month Step 6: Financial freedom A note about habits: Reaching all six steps is possible, but it's a long road ahead. If you're only creating content for views, followers, or money, then you probably won't make it. In the beginning, you won't get those things. So you'll quit. The solution is to fall in love with creating. To create out of intrinsic motivation. Because you enjoy it. And just the process of creating helps you. A note about money: Money is important. But I don't think it's our end goal here. Content is growing exponentially. Our attention is limited. The role of the synthesizer becomes more important every single day. Our end goal is to commit to solving the 'disjointed knowledge problem' full-time. Now that's a meaningful goal. A note about $10,000/month: It is possible to earn much more than this through synthesizing, but this is roughly the point where your happiness stops increasing as you earn more. A note about Financial Freedom: The goal isn't to sit on a beach and drink cocktails. The goal is to use this freedom to make art. To create something beautiful for the other people on earth. At this point significant impact can be made. A note about "Celebrations": This community has exceeded my expectations in terms of energy and aliveness. I didn't quite realise how strongly being synthesizers would resonate with you guys. Thank you, sincerely, for your response. I've added a "celebrations" post category. I think this will add to the energy of the group. Whenever you hit part of the roadmap, make a post! We will keep track of how many people are at each level. Also feel free to post other celebrations not on the roadmap. Final notes: This roadmap is definitely not final. If you see any problems with it, comment below. If you can think of anything you think should be added, comment below.
Here's a fun exercise inspired by a conversation I had with @Andrew Kirby earlier today that will help you find more clarity in your business... comment your answer down below. Fill in the blank: I help ____ go from _____ to _____ thru _____. Guidance: I help <WHO> go from <OLD LIFE> to <DREAM LIFE> thru <METHOD>. Rules: no commas, and no use of the word "and". My example: I help vegans go from having zero online income to having a full time online income thru coaching memberships. Note: the <METHOD> is the least important part, since you'll likely have a variety of ways you help, but try to put something that encompasses everything you do into 1 word, like @Andrew Kirby has done with the word "synthesizing".
"But I don’t have anything original to say and I would be just repeating things said elsewhere on the internet!” Think of a university professor teaching a course. Do they say anything original? Do you think they should cancel their course because somebody else discovered the things they want to teach? Or do they have to cancel their course simply because there is a similar course at some other university? Or consider yourself. Do you avoid having conversations with your friends when you think you have nothing original to say? Do you share things with them? Do you give advice? Do you help them to understand things? Source: https://guzey.com/personal/why-have-a-blog/ ------ My 2 cents: Just share what you've seen work for YOU and what you've seen work for others. When you share what you've seen work for others, you're being INSANELY helpful, despite not being original. Wanna know what my rich neighbour did to save over 50% on his taxes? Yeah you do. And guess what, I don't even need to be "original" to help you - I can just tell you what he told me!
I remember reading a tweet about how memes can program our subconscious because our brain don't filter them (idk if it's true), and I thought about the idea of using memes to gather attention for a product/community/service, I believe this is the best way of advertising because people don't look at it as an advertisement, but rather as a source of entertainment this meme on twitter (if you like you can rt it so it will reach a larger audience) inspiration for this idea (I'm still researching this idea, and I would be open to hearing you guys opinion about it)
Eugene Schwartz, an epic synthesizer, once got paid $50,000,000 (FIFTY MILLION) to write a textbook on natural health. Imagine getting paid 50 MIL to write a book?! And in 1966, he wrote a book called “Breakthrough Advertising" which is now widely regarded as the 'holy grail' of copywriting books. So how did Eugene Schwartz (one of the highest paid synthesizers to ever live) become such a great writer? He did two things - a lot: He read and he wrote. When he read, he read things that interested him. And when he wrote, he wrote about things that interested him. But he did so with structure... He always wrote using something called the "The 33 Minute Rule." Here's how: Every morning Schwartz would chose ONE topic he wanted to work on that he knew would require a lot of focus and concentration. He then turned off all notifications & unplugged his phone. Anything that could distract him (like his dog) was in a separate room. He then set a timer for 33 minutes and 33 seconds. For those 33 minutes and 33 seconds, Schwartz only allowed himself to do two things: 1) Stare at the page. 2) Write on the page. NOTHING ELSE. He said, "I would often get so bored of staring at the page, that after a couple of minutes I would just write to overcome the boredom." "But once I began writing, I began flowing, and it was effortless." And once the timer went off, whether he was in flow state of not, Schwartz took a mandatory 5 minute break. During this forced break, Schwartz deliberately took his mind off writing completely by playing with his dog, making a cup of coffee, speaking with a friend, stretching, or using the men's room. After his 5 minute break, Schwartz would reset the timer for another 33 minutes and 33 seconds and return to either: Staring at the page Or Writing more. Schwartz said he would go on to repeat this 33minute/5min process until 4-5 hours had elapsed. The rest of his day he took off work and just lived his life how he wished. If you want to become one of the best, and highest paid synthesizers you know...
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.
#The Heart Of Content Creation says: to go viral, make something people really want, to stay consistent, make something you really want, and to go viral and stay consistent: Find the overlap. So last night I set the timer and spent 30 minutes scrolling through my entire YT library looking for the videos with the most views + the ones that were the most enjoyable to make... I think I found a potential overlap! Thanks Andrew.
@Andrew Kirby He's my fav artist/rapper and he told everyone he was goona blow up LOOONG before he ever did. He had so much belief in THE PROCESS, despite how bad he sucked when he started, he just always knew if he kept at it, he'd blow up. Come up story: https://youtu.be/eY8OF0IDe30 << He's got a lyric here that goes: "The come-ups documented, you should scroll down and peep game. You can say he changed 'cause he went and achieved fame, but he landed where he aimed" Another song about always knowing is: "Always Knew": https://youtu.be/XihOTHpmcVM Lyric from that song: "I always knew that second guessing was the opposite of truth I bet my future on my faith and let myself do what I do Now my gambles looking like they weren't gambles after all I always knew, I always knew... Yeah, I always knew"
Hypothetically speaking, If Skool did not exist, and Andrew were to have built this community inside a FB group, would you have joined it? And if you would have joined it on FB, do you think you would you be more active, less active, or just as active as you are now? I'm asking because I have a FB group with nearly 3,000 active members in it, but since I love Skool, I'm tempted to try n get everyone to migrate over to a Skool group and grow a free Skool group to replace my FB group.
