Just checked my toggl time tracker and yeah, is said 354h. It's a lot of eggs in one basket. Almost so much that feel embarrassed to reveal it. But I wanted to learn how to make documentary style youtube videos. So now about 3 months later, my first doc is finally out. https://youtu.be/fQmfn6l_0Ac Would love to get your guys feedback so I can continue to improve.
So far I've made downloadable versions of Alex Hormozi and Naval Ravikant's brain... Who's brain would you like to download next? Leave a comment with a name. Like any comment if you also want to see that person's brain.
I started consuming his content recently. Sometimes I am blown away by the clarity of his thought and the way he communicates. Sometimes I don't know what to make of a few things he says probably because I don't have the experience he has on the said topics. So I got to wondering what other synthesizers think of him to know what other perspectives are around him. What are your thoughts on Andrew Tate?
@Aman Lata Promoting hedonistic pursuits as a form of reward. I don't think that it is a good influence on the young people. I also understand that from the marketing perspective it is a very calculated move.
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.
For the monetization part I think that even with a small audience you can monetize it and get to that 10k per month just include consulting of some sort and create a simple sales process after someone watches your videos it is so much easier to make a sale.
Did you know that Ragul MD got banned? He was accused of using bot accounts to manipulate his score. I did a podcast with him to hear the situation from his side. #21: Ragul UNCENSORED - Why He Got BANNED From Andrew Kirby's Community YouTube: https://youtu.be/PzMXYFZHyTw Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/episode/2TyEgm2i6D843gj9cpP9Vd Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-sheasby-podcast/id1554112665 All Links: https://linktr.ee/thesheasbypodcast
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

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.

This post (All the resources you ever need as a content creator) by Santa is a gold mine and aligns perfectly with the goal of this Skool! Please show your support by engaging with this post to let Andrew know our opinion about that post. That is best consumed as soon as someone joins the group along with the "Start Here" post. A ton of value + Right Starting Toolkit = Should be Pinned.
@Andrew Kirby has created a process for solving every problem in existence. GPS framework. G - define a goal you want P - define the problem that is stopping you from achieving it S - define first step to achieve that ( don't focus on step 10, just focus all your efforts on the step 1 AMA
Hello guys;) This video of @Andrew Kirby really inspired me a lot!! It opened up my mind :) I feel like a lot more connected to him emotionally as I myself have the same desire (i.e) to attain financial freedom and live a life of my own terms/ideologies and travel the world>>FREEDOM. He made me realize the true meaning of the word "FREEDOM" both financially and mentally. I too come from a lower status family with very little family income as he himself has mentioned in this video..that truly inspires me and gave me the confidence that I too can do it myself no matter what. Things are getting interesting if I think back to a year ago..where I was just playing video games, watching movies to>> consuming valuable content on Youtube, reading self-help books, joining this community and understanding the purpose of my life:) Overall that comes from the 'strong desire' (as mentioned in the video) that I had in myself to make me want to achieve FINANCIAL INDEPENDANCE and help people. I personally believe that I'm going to be a huge success and now..as I've now joined this most valuable community it is going to be more faster and effective. Soon one day I'll definitely post here my success story/my achievements. Thanks to Adrew Kirby once again :) Do affirm here with me that soon you'll too achieve your goals and post it one day in this platform;) I'd also like to get to know your definition of "FREEDOM" in your own terms>>

Hey all! I am so damn inconsistent, I go through phases of smashing out content like Alex Hormozi on steroids, then I get complacent and fall off the habit. Anyone got any suggestions as to what has worked for you? Once the habit drops the resistance sets in, and it becomes harder. If I don't make content, my client acquisition is inconsistent too as I'm not showing up for my audience. Would love to attend the group accountability calls when I level up 😬
I'm a video editor, and realized, that when it comes to synthesizing, a lot of you guys struggle with editing, so I made a free course, that will teach you to do simple but effective editing! 1. Introduction 2. Boring parts/dead space 3. Subtitles 4. Graphics 5. Sounds (note: loom doesn't record the sounds of the video I was editing, here is the full video)
Hey people, so I finally uploaded my first video. It is pretty raw footage, as I've only cut a little piece out, because I just went silent for a while haha. This idea I had just after I woke up in my meditation a few days ago, and I didn't take much time to prepare. I just went for it and shot it. I have a new idea that I want to work on, and I'm curious if you have some feedback for me. For the next video I'll probably do a little more planning in advance and maybe work on some editing? I thought that maybe people would like these story type video's, but I have also seen beautiful video's with stock footage in between and text on screen that might be able to fit in my idea of my potential niche as well. Please let me know, it is not much work, but I think it is an honest first step :)
On Sunday we found out that our calls are visited by a stable group of enjoyers. There may be several reasons why the rest of Synthesizers don't show up: 1. You don't know that such calls exist 2. You don't know how to get on a call 3. You are afraid that you can't contribute to the discussion 4. You don't have enough time 5. You find no value in such calls 6. ??? So, 1. Such calls do exist. We have fun and exchange experience every Sunday 2. Here's the link, buddy 3. Give it a shot. Even if you keep silent the first meeting, you'll have something to talk about at the next one. 4. That's understandable and it's about priorities. If you were to be shown how much value you can get there... 5. It's fun. It's engaging. It's informative and motivating. Do you still have any reasons not to join next time?
#Specific Knowledge, Leverage and Accountability I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations for history books that are useful for learning from history? I want to learn more about the Peloponnesian War and Napoleon Bonaparte specifically, but really open to anything. My Recommendation: I have been reading the 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene and just started The Fourth Turning by William Strauss. The first is great at distilling historic stories into applicable principles to apply to your life for gaining influence over groups and individuals, as well as to defend yourself against manipulators. The latter creates a framework for understanding the process by which history repeats itself.
I wrote an essay to celebrate 1,000 members. I wrote another essay to celebrate 2,000 members. So to celebrate reaching 3,000, let's do something different... --- Tomorrow at 8AM PST... Let's all hop on a Minecraft server and work together to kill the Ender Dragon! EDIT: This challenge is over.
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?
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!
