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.
#22: Andrew Kirby - $1 Million At Age 22, Working With Mr Beast, Synthesising We covered: how Andrew made $1 million by age 22, how he ended up working with Mr Beast and what it was like, masculinity, who he looks up to, how much he has spent on online coaches and courses, how to become a synthesiser, why you shouldn't watch the news, what to do as a young man who is lost and has no purpose, and much more. I put in timestamps! This was surreal. Thanks for coming on @Andrew Kirby. The best part is that it is episode 22 😜 P.S. (check image 3. Ragul had it wrong all along...)

I recently went on a 2 week trip to Peru. I was in the jungle, so had no phone service. When I returned to civilisation, my most recent vid had got some decent traction (it now has 22k+ views) I went from 70 subs to almost 700 subs as of now. The guy who made the breathwork course (Niraj Naik - SOMA breath) I reviewed reached out and gave me his personal WhatsApp to chat (he’s friends with Wim hoff!) He then gave me free membership to his advanced breathwork community! (Usually $247 per year!) And if that wasn’t enough, he shared my work with vishen lakhiani (the founder of mindvalley!) who might share it on mindvalley’s instagram account 😆 (screenshot attached). What a ride 😅 Let’s aim for 700 to 7K next time 🙏🏼 You can watch the video responsible for all this here. https://youtu.be/hsfK_7GWcXo
You mentioned something in your videos about promoting a community that you are quire good at creating organic traffic via your YouTube Channel. And you mentioned that you have some videos/info about that. Please share any info/links to that info. Much appreciate what you are doing. Tom
How can we measure the real impact of synthesizing... with numbers? How can we prove that the effects of every synthesizer are bigger than the ones had by every junk-creator? If we had a tool for measuring the "level of synthesized content" so that we could compare that with the " level of junk content" what would be the result? eg: is the amount of hr. spent on synthesised content growing faster than the amount of hr spent on non-synthesized content? (it's easy to say that the former it's not bigger than the latter) But if the answer to this last question is no, it's pretty bad because no matter how much content the synthesizers produce, there will always be a larger amount of junk-content to fight. Hopefully, those questions will get an answer with time, but I think it's urgent to solve them NOW in order to motivate everyone who is in the middle between synthesizing and junk. -Ronaldo Mancinelli
Not only does this improve the quality of content that exists on the internet (the Synthesizer mission). But this rightly positions you as an authority, putting you in the perfect place to make more sales.
I just made that number up. But I had a thought I wanted to share, that may have crossed your mind before. The chances of you being born are slim. But what's even more slim is the fact that you're not born as a mosquito, a plant or a cute porcupine. You are born as a human being. A human being with internet power, a brain, a human who is capable of creating things never created before. But here I am, scrolling on social media. Complaining about what I could have been instead of just taking action. Imagining what life would be like if ''I just started playing piano and went to the gym more often''. How proud would I be? Note to self & people who relate: Perhaps you consider this a strong take but I think it is insulting to your ancestors, to all the species on earth who wished to be in your position but instead you decide to eat oreos while scrolling on Instagram to fap to next hot girl you saw. 270+ generations for you to sit here today, but instead you're on 9gag or Battle.net It's time to stop insulting your previous generations, and do something useful
***Please read the original post for additional information on the challenge and the requirements for participant applicants.*** https://www.skool.com/synthesizers/an-absurd-idea-0-to-10000-followers-in-30-days?p=69e05d0b UPDATE 11/24: After interviewing and accepting some candidates we have decided that we will likely be starting the official challenge January 1st, 2023-- with a few preparatory masterminds before the 1st. We have also collectively decided to enter into a "suicide pact" of sorts. If anyone who is participating in the challenge is unable to hit the 10,000 followers required, we will all delete our channels (videos can be downloaded off of the channel before deleting). Essentially we are burning the ships behind us! ⛵🔥🔥🔥 This is why it is only fair to myself and the other candidates to accept those into the group who are able to focus 100% of their energy to this task! We have 3 of the 7 total spots remaining, so if interested send me a DM quickly before we're out of spots!
It's been a minute since I last posted. The past 5 -6 weeks have distracted my energy and participation. My wife's mom became ill and passed. And honestly her leaving us left a bigger hole than I imagined. But I am back and ready to re-engage. I have seen a ton of new people joining and I am looking forward to interacting and learning more about each of you.🌻
I'm still dealing with a contradiction of whether I should post viral content for building an audience or not Pros of viral content: · Fast growth · You already know that it works · It grabs people's attention, which is the goal Cons of viral content: · Your following will be based on all kinds of people, not only like-minded ones (your "ideal audience") · Most of the viral content is made for being bookmarked, but there's not much value in it · You just add more information noise among many other same ones (no positioning) I've made peace with clickbait hooks, as their only purpose is to grab people's attention, and they're not really clickbait if you then deliver the value promised with the content But I still refuse to post viral content, even though I know it will make my growth way faster and that the value I create doesn't have much use if no one sees it What are your opinions and advice on this?
As a 32yo it's not always easy to explain the knowledge game to my generation. I feel like we fall between "being glad to have a J.O.B. (Just Over Broke) and staying with the company for as long as possible" and "there's more out there, I guess". I'm trying to perfect my synthesizing and here's my current system: 1. Consume deliberate content in line with my own goals, aspirations and interests. For me, anything to do with landscaping, ecology, landscape architecture, gardening, etc 2. Take notes in Obsidian (read "Smart Notes", by Sönke Ahrens) to convert them to small entities. 3. Link as much small ideas together. 4. Research scientific papers concerning the content I consume (I'm up to my eyeballs in papers on soil health and the effects on a landscaping investments by clients). Forming a research question can be a huge help in narrowing down a niche topic. Using a framework like PICO, PEO, SPIDER, SPICE, ECLIPSE helps forming a qualitative question to research. Using Boolean operators in search engines using the terms you come up with while forming the question is key. 5. Use Research Rabbit to find similar papers/content. 6. Add all to Zotero Reference manager and link zotero to Obsidian 7. Highlight interesting points in Zotero and export to markdown in Obsidian.v Convert to solitary ideas you can connect to the rest of you data. 8. Rinse and repeat. Sometimes it helps to consume content about stuff you know, stuff you don't know. More importantly are those small gems of content about stuff you don't know you don't know. Down the rabbit hole you go. If I want to synthesise: look something up in Obsidian. You can just click and drag your smart notes in a new file, order the information so it makes sense, make the paper flow. Tadaaa. Done. I might overthink all this, but I'm still iterating on this system. Any tips, advice, concerns are helpful. Thanks for reading.
There was a post where lots of you requested his brain to be transcribed. So, here you go! So, I've not just transcribed his 9 hour long Hustlers University course, but made it readable and digestible. Got rid of all the fluff, his upsells of other courses and preserved his style. I've watched the rest of his courses, but they link back to HU. So all the information you need on his mindset and his business secrects are stored here. Here's the link to Google Drive. Enjoy!
How often do you declutter/ organize things around you? Well it's rightly said, "our of sight, out of mind" ; more the things like around, more likely it is to distract us and impair our ability to focus. It's extremely essential to declutter in order to focus, not just physical decluttering but it's even more important to get rid of the mental clutter!!
I used to be dependent on it for work and it's often overlooked but you can turn caffeine into an amazing tool if used correctly. (I will not say it works for all as everyone's body is different) Then 2 years ago, I found these 3 videos; https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=alex+becker+why+i+quit+coffe While they are extreme views, they hold a good point and now I've managed to turn caffeine into a super drug for work... Here's how: I used to drink a cup on a Monday to kick me into the week and sometimes on a Friday for me to give it my all before the weekend, (which turned into daily use.) I felt no benefit over time and now I was drinking to feel normal (tolerance builds up and less of an effect it has) I decided to quit cold turkey and return to keeping it for 1-2 per week max. Now, I could more easily go to sleep and wake up easier and on the day I did use coffee, it was amazing, ideas would flow and work would feel effortless. I will try to stick to this now.
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.
According to Gary Vee documenting your journey is the best form of content creation! So here I'm sharing my weekly vlog, my way of documenting my college life! What's your idea of documenting your Journey?? Do let me know!
Why do some people succeed faster than others? Why does it take somebody 10 years to achieve a bit of what we see people like Iman Gadzhi and Alex Hormozi achieve in their early 20s and 30s? Of course you have to be patient with results, but also urgent with actions and try to get it not fast but FASTER. Assuming both groups work hard, what do you think is the determiner of making such breakthroughs?
For those who don't know me, recently I've been taking a course on Digital Marketing (Digital Marketing Blueprint by Seth Hymes) in order to start my own SMMA. It's currently 8pm here in the UK and I'm writing this post as accountability, even though I don't know if I can fully provide a great service, I'll do my best. Wish me luck lol.
Just wanted to say that I love this community! It's already been so helpful for me!!!! I'll definitely be interacting more in here in the weeks to come. I have a self-actualization/spirituality youtube channel w/ about 9k subs and I'm just about to create my first free skool community "Self-Actualizers Academy" !! I've already made over 10k from my life coaching business and this community came to me AT THE PERFECT TIME! Thanks so much @Andrew Kirby for making it and for this inspiring idea! You're a beast!
With Rex Loyer. So, I decide to start a podcast with CEOs in my niche and I'm having guests in my playground podcast to make as many mistakes and possible before I get to business. Favorite lessons from Rex: • Taking action teaches us to be very good at looking terrible and lets us get rid of our perfectionism. • If you want to grow, be willing to look dumb and do things that hurt your ego. • You can get money even out of scammers if you have something to offer. • You can sell anything if you approach enough people. • Everything can be done quickly. Here's the link. Feel free to watch and roast me, providing me with useful feedback. https://youtu.be/6xtV9SeXXyY
I'm going to put this out directly. I don't know what I'm doing. I know that I want to do well in something, and, be financially free. I also have other motives that involve helping my parents. To start I've joined this group. Andrews video's really piqued my interest because of his success. I''m currently reading Think and Grow Rich. I'm also watching a lot of Alex Hormozi videos because I saw Andrew mentioned him. I'm also looking at Matt Parr's course and considering if there is value in it? (my guess is that there is. Does anyone know?). Synthesizer school seems interesting to me because I have, most of my life, been a thinker and a teacher (not strict education) and a learner. I really am wandering in uncertainty and chaos here. It is, kinda frightening.
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?
I know that this is a big and outrageous claim... (isn't "the best synthesizer alive a subjective opinion?) Hear me out: This man here, Leo Gura, from Actualized.org is most likely the best synthesizer on the internet today. This man has such a high-level understanding of life and reality... I can't even begin to explain how and why it's so rare and profoundly different from average influencers. When I was 16... I found his content when searching for dating advice on YouTube and little did I know that I stumbled onto a literal GOLDMINE of rare, well-curated, and passionate wisdom about: - Self-Actualization - Success & Productivity - Spirituality & Meditation & Enlightenment - Psychedelics - Philosophy, Metaphysics, and Understanding the Nature of Reality - Psychology - Political Philosophy - Philosophy of Science etc. After over 6 years of watching this man's videos religiously (not absorbing his ideas like a blind sheep... but using his ideas as guidelines for my own investigation)... and APPLYING many of the practices and action-steps... (along with reading 100s of other books and listening to 100s of other teachers) I've been able to create such a wealth of understanding... that my basic experience of daily life is totally different from the average person's (in terms of how I use my mind, manage my emotions, appreciate the little things, mindfulness, relate to others etc.) I created a playlist of all of Leo's essential videos (over 200+ hours of content) but even watching 20% of it will have you agreeing with my above claim.. that this man is the best synthesizer on YouTube! Don't be overwhelmed by the length of the videos because the DEPTH and SCOPE of the content is WAY beyond the norm! Enjoy! (you've just hit a goldmine.... go mine it) You can use this golden information to further enhance your synthesizing abilities!

Source: This Is Marketing by Seth Godin. The questions: - Who's it for? - What's it for? - What is the worldview of the audience you're trying to reach? - What are they afraid of? - What story will you tell? Is it true? (Use storybrand framework: https://www.mojomedialabs.com/blog/complete-guide-storybrand-framework ) - What change are you seeking to make? - How will it change their status? - How will you reach the early adopters/neophilliacs? (The idea here is that about 10% of the population are "early adopters" and are always searching for new ideas. They are quick to adopt your product/service and share it with their friends. They love the new, the creative, and the original.) - Why will they tell their friends? - What will they tell their friends? - Where's the network effect that will propel this forward? (why will it spread?) - What asset are you building? - Are you proud of it? These questions have been invaluable for me whenever I'm planning a new product/service. Use it to get CLARITY about what you're offering.
I have made a bet with my parents If I make double their salary by 2024, they'll let me drop out of college They laughed and agreed when I told them that because they think it's impossible I love them, but they're going to see me laugh back And much sooner than they expect
Inspired by @Andrew Kirby and the approach he's pioneered here. I started my free Skool group for music producers who want to learn and master music production using a unique approach to music analysis I created. I'm already getting the right people flowing in. They get access to a free program i used to sell for $1000...instead of paying, at the half way point they invite 2 people to join, then get access to the second half. I heard Alex Hormozi say that if you can get one person to invite 2 other people your business will be a success and grow on its own. So I'm testing that out. At the moment I'm going to test to see if this works to scale community. Then worry about monetisation later. Thanks for the advice Andrew and wish me luck ;)
