The Audience Building Course

I’m excited to announce that my friend @Julian and I will be co-teaching a live sprint course on the art and science of audience building for Twitter and newsletters.

If you’re interested, apply to join at the link below! maven.com/demandcurve/au…
We will be teaching the sprint course in early June and will cover a variety of topics related to audience building.

It is designed to be tactical and provide course participants with everything @Julian and I wish we knew when we were getting started on our own creator journeys.
This course is for founders, creators, and builders looking to learn the ins and outs of audience building.

Participants will learn alongside a community of passionate, positive-sum individuals and have the opportunity to build circles to co-promote and grow.
The sprint course will cover:

- Why audience building matters
- Content topic selection
- Creating a content engine
- Writing well
- Twitter zero to one
- Twitter scaling
- Newsletter growth hacks

And much more!
As you all know, I am very passionate about education and teaching.

So in that vein, I am personally committing to contribute the majority of my course proceeds to education-related charities, initiatives, and businesses.
This course is created in partnership with @gaganbiyani and @wes_kao new cohort-based course platform.

They have already launched courses with amazing creators such as @ljin18 @APompliano @gregisenberg and @shl.

Keep an eye on what they are building - it is changing the game.
Spots are limited (and this may be a one time course given @Julian and my other commitments), so if you are interested, apply at the link below.

And don’t forget to tag your friends who might be interested to share the wealth.

It’s time to grow! maven.com/demandcurve/au…

The story of the last few weeks in finance has been the secretive rise and rapid downfall of Archegos Capital Management.

A thread on the underlying mechanics of the Archegos saga and how a $20 billion fortune vanished into thin air...
First, let’s set the stage.

Archegos Capital Management is the family office of Bill Hwang, a former prodigy of hedge fund legend Julian Robertson.

Hwang previously built Tiger Asia Management - a so-called “Tiger Cub” fund due to its lineage from Robertson’s Tiger Management.
Bill Hwang grew Tiger Asia Management into a highly successful hedge fund, reaching ~$10 billion in assets under management in the 2000s.

He was a bit of an anomaly in the world of high finance - known as a devout Christian with simple tastes (seriously, he drives a Hyundai!).

Kaizen is a powerful concept for unlocking growth in your career, startup, business, writing, or life.

A short thread on what it means and the magic of continuous improvement...
Kaizen is a Japanese word meaning “improvement.”

In practice, the term is used to convey continuous improvement.

It is a dynamic process - ongoing, incremental, compounding daily improvements.
The origin of the concept of Kaizen is long, winding, and global in nature.

In the 1930s, Walter Shewhart - a Bell Labs engineer - had developed the Plan-Do-Study-Act System (PDSA) to assess the effectiveness of organizational changes in driving continued business improvement.

Focus is a competitive advantage.

But in a noisy world, it is increasingly difficult to find.

5 tactics for finding focus in your career, startup, or life:
Eliminate Low-Value Decisions

Mark Zuckerberg is famous for having only one outfit in his closet.

While an extreme example, there is a lesson here:

Eliminate decisions that require energy but do not create commensurate value.

Redeploy that energy into high-value decisions.
Sprint Then Rest

The human mind is not designed to be on at all times. It needs rest.

Work in short blocks (1-2 hours).

You can schedule the blocks - I call it "deep work" on my calendar - or leave yourself more flexibility.

Use biology to your advantage: sprint then rest.

Ikigai is a powerful concept for finding purpose and clarity to unlock growth in your career, startup, business, writing, or relationships.

A thread on its meaning and how it can change your life...
Ikigai is a combination of the Japanese words “iki” (or “life”) and “gai” (a term to describe value or worth).

It roughly translates to “reason for being.”

It is all-encompassing - it is not simply about work, money, or success - it is about the full scope of your existence.
Ikigai is the point of balance and harmony in your life and work.

It is found at the intersection of:
(1) What you love to do
(2) What you are good at
(3) What the world needs
(4) What you can be paid for

Importantly, it is at the nexus of passion and practicality.
