I have a TG channel of 700+ people and I made them network with each other one-on-one. They greatly enjoyed the experiment. Here's how I did it: 1. I collect the contacts of those willing to network via Google Forms 2. Create pairs 3. Send to each of the participants their partner's contacts We can do the same. If you want to learn from your peers or just have a great time talking to like-minded folks willing to communicate with you, fill out this form and I'll do the rest. A new friend every week. Not bad, isn't it? Just tell a little bit about yourself. Here's the link to a Google Form: https://forms.gle/Bu6g8Z1mBbhMJz136
Last night was one of the most exciting meetups in a while... https://twitter.com/mielke_jack/status/1570280352824045569?s=20&t=JCtn1qyiduBuo2q7ZJWtUw After posting my thoughts on college vs. an alternative path, @John Mavrick Reyes and @Siddharth Saini both mentioned to me they're also in Vancouver, BC - so I made a gc and we all decided to meet in Vancouver to chat a while. (Why not?! 🤷🏼♂️ ) -> Spoiler: It couldn't have gone much better. And as requested by @Andrew Kirby, @Corey Bennett Boardman and a few others, here's a summary of our chat: We spoke for about an hour (but could've gone way longer) about: - content creation, the varying platforms, and the importance of accountability systems + online communities like synthesized skool - Entrepreneurship, side projects, learning (and the real value of a degree/school), travel, digital nomading, and more (...and even the idea of an IRL remote-work community that's curated through these online communities..ideally somewhere tropical haha) - the extreme importance of balancing heavy content intake with healthy reflection, writing, discussions w/ like-minded thinkers etc. (cause without it, it's basically addiction/overload and the head space gets very foggy.) - importance of project-based learning (learning by doing) vs. mere in-class learning (or even online courses) and the universal principle of growth: you've gotta push your limits to improve. Also, we discussed the idea that putting yourself out there allows you to make your own luck (serendipity!) - meditation, rational buddhism, Sam Harris, enlightenment, and more Initial takeaways: - IRL energy is just different—we could’ve talked all night and the potential energy in the room was unlike anything I'd seen in a while. - Many of us have “unconventional” goals/desires that are wayy better handled w accountability systems/partners (that are often harder to find IRL). We're experimenting with daily twitter posts to just get the right flow going there. - shockingly aligned on many topics (in a way that's rarely ever found purely through IRL-based connections) yet we all had new gems to share here and there which continually added to the convo - the internet curates the right people for you like no other. - also: was thinking that a casual podcast would be fun if anyone else does something similar (for other synthesizers to see). We kinda missed on this one.
Hi everyone, I just wanted to share something that I've used in the past and am going to start using again to start bringing more focus, structure and accountability to my day. It's live deep work sessions via a community/ service called Flown https://flown.com/ there's 30 days free and Fridays are always free even after the trial period. What's cool about it is at the start you're put into small breakout groups for a few minutes and share with the others in your group of 3-4 people what your goal is for the session. You get put back into those groups at the end to then briefly review your progress. I thought I'd share as it would be really cool to bump into some synthesizers there! I've found it's really nice to randomly meet people from all different industries, from finance to freelance artists, writers, content and course creators, coaches (a good way to make serendipitous connections!). And it's nice to be virtually working alongside people who are all being focused on their goals together for a few hours.
You guys loved the last season of free mastermind calls, so we're bringing them back. These calls are a place for Synthesizers of all skill levels to come together and make magic happen. They're great for accountability, connecting with other Synthesizers, and brainstorming how to grow. - You can find call times in the Calendar. - @Wiktor Romanowicz will be hosting again. I will not be present. This is a place for you guys to meet, not for me to get involved. - Only available for members Level 3 or above. To give us a rough indication of interest, please comment "Attending" if you're planning on coming to one of these calls.
Anyone in these locations within the next 1-3 months? Would be cool to link up with people in real life that shares this same path :) I find maintaining a stable social life a constant nut to crack when you are on the grind as a digital nomad. I'm currently in Lisbon but thinking to head to either Bali or Thailand in about a month. PM if your in the hoods :)
So I have been on youtube, for a long time now, and I'm obsessed with researching why some people become famous and some do not, and why this happens. I would be happy to have a call with you guys, on a 1:1 thing, if you started your youtube channel and you are down for a call, let me know, and we can chat for an hour https://calendly.com/benedek-santa/let-s-talk if you can't find a time, just drop me a DM PS: It's okay if you just starting and you cant give me valuable information in return, I'm still down for a call and giving you advice, see you there!
So a few months ago I dropped a Dm here in this group to @Matej Stehlik because I saw he was also from Slovakia, we started to talk, and quickly we became good friends, this is the second time us meeting in Kosice so I can say, that I made a real friend in this group
Met up with @Wiktor Romanowicz who's honestly one of the most interesting & inspiring people I've ever met!! What I thought would be a normal social 'get to know each other more' call turned into a conversation that made me think much deeper about re-analyzing my career path and choices. Hearing about his experiences & life also helped me gain some interesting insights about sales, to the education system, to how to really focus on achieving what you truly want to achieve. From deciding to drop out of school at 15 to building a profitable business, man's f***ing awesome. Massive thank you to the synthesizer community for giving us the opportunity to meet & making this happen!!!
Two weeks ago some members of the community started a weekly Zoom call to connect with each other, hold each other accountable, and solve each other's problems. The main goal is to create one piece of content per week, for 6 weeks. To build the habit of creating, and grow your audience. You can see a recording of the first call here. For the halfway mark of the challenge we're switching things up, and doing a 'hot seat' style call, inspired by Think and Grow Rich. Here's how the call will work: A member of the call will be randomly chosen by @Wiktor Romanowicz. The chosen member will describe: 1. Their current situation around synthesizing 2. Their desired situation around synthesizing 3. Any problems that are holding them back from reaching their desired situation. This should take less then 3 minutes, so if you tend to ramble, it could be a good idea to come to the call prepared with a rough idea of what you're going to say. Then the rest of the members of the call will try their best to help the chosen member solve their problem! People can unmute themselves, offer advice, recall times they were in similar situations and what they did, provide content recommendations etc. Ideally responses are short and concise, mindful of everyone's time. Then after roughly 10 minutes, another hotseat member is randomly chosen. I've personally paid a looooooot of money to attend similar mastermind calls, and have received a tonne of value from it (what's more valuable than a group of intelligent people all working on solving your most pressing problems?). The call will go on for around 75 minutes. And even if you're not chosen, chances are people are going through similar problems to you, so it'll still be valuable. Plus teaching is the best way to learn. I will not be attending, but @Wiktor Romanowicz does a great job of hosting.
