A 3-week cohort-based course with @aaditsh:

• Supercharge your Twitter.
• Write for the internet.
• Build your content flywheel.

Read on to see how we're continually uplevelling the program👇…
From our first cohort, we gained great feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of the course.

We're excited to be launching new projects to improve the course experience:

• Course Onboarding

and more!
Check out some of the amazing wins from cohort 1:

1. After Makers Mark, @MurtazaBambot (Founder of
@HeartbeatChat) grew from 300 to 1000 followers, increased sales via Twitter leads for Heartbeat(+20/week) and get 2 offers from well-known investors.

2. @siddharthm83 (CEO of Yembo) set himself a goal of getting to 1k followers by the end of the year.

He reached 2k in October and his latest thread sharing his experience hiring as a CEO is going to the moon! 🚀

3. @alexdphan (Student at GMU) has begun to create Web3 content and received 2 freelance/work experiences from this first thread!

4. @vishweshji (VP Eng @mindtickle) has been consistently sharing lessons from his 20 years in tech/eng, shipping over 6 threads during the cohort!

The best way to level up is to hang out with people 1-2 steps ahead of you.

The power of Twitter is that you can reach anyone.

The problem is people can't find others that push them to grow.

Here's 10 curated follows that consistently deliver amazing content:
Most people on Twitter have the wrong follower distribution.

They only engage with:

• Detractors who constantly argue with them
• Thinkers who often don't have practical, growth advice

They fail to cultivate a community of smart, interesting people they want to learn from.

Announcing: Maker's Mark

Building on Twitter has allowed me to:

- Work @beondeck
- Apprentice with @jackbutcher
- Find mentors and build friendships

Maker's Mark is a cohort-based course on how to effectively create content and network online.
I'm teaching this with @aaditsh, someone I am grateful to have met through the internet and live proof of the networking potential on Twitter.

The course will be powered by Maven, and I'm grateful for the CBC platform that @gaganbiyani and @wes_kao are building.
My first interaction with Cohort-Based Courses was through Write of Passage with @david_perell.

The average completion rate of an online course is ~3-5%.

Of the 200+ students that joined the first Zoom call of Write of Passage, over 90% were on the last one.

I've interviewed 20 of the best founders, builders, and creators on Twitter.

Here's what I learned 👇
1. "The only way to escape and achieve financial freedom is to create something where you control the conversation.

I think what more people need to understand is that you don’t need permission to do work." — @jackbutcher

Create your dream job, without permission from anyone.
2. "All creativity is combinational in nature. I build a creativity inbox to collect ideas, then combine through idea sex, which creates new insights." — @anthilemoon

Create a system that brings disconnected ideas together, their interactions will drive new frameworks.

My Lindy Library - a thread of 0.1% of the resources I've consumed that derive 90% of the value.

The content I constantly find myself sharing or coming back to. Articles, podcasts and videos that are timeless.

"The robustness of something is proportional to its life. The longer it has survived, the more likely it is to continue to do so."

Everyone should curate the content providing high signal in this world of noise.

(h/t to @george__mack for his original thread as inspiration)
1. "Think about risk the right way. You only have to be right once. The risk is not getting on the path where you get to be right that one critical time."

You don't have to be 19 to read this piece. Timeless article on how to approach life decisions.…

The Permissionless Apprentice framework grants you an unfair advantage in generating dream opportunities.

@traf used it to get a job, build his portfolio and attract new business.

Here's how you can replicate this model for yourself👇
Traf is currently building @superso_, a $29k MRR product that lets you build websites with @NotionHQ, but before then he was on the hunt for a job.
Traf applied for a role at Exodus, a company building a Crypto wallet.

Instead of submitting his cover letter, resumé, and design portfolio, he built them a new website.

CEOs interviewing other CEOs, Public Dating Shows, @sriramk + @aarthir becoming the next great show hosts.

I cannot read 2 tweets without seeing something on Clubhouse. A new room, a thread on Elon, a bull case on their $1B eval.

Let’s take a look at the rise of Clubhouse.
Clubhouse is a live-voice chat app.

People can join different rooms, where predetermined topics are set by hosts who help moderate the discussion.

With quarantine, it gave people the space to shoot the shit and listen to high-quality conversations.
Clubhouse was founded by @pdavison and @rohanseth .

Davison’s past projects show a bias towards products based on spontaneity:

Highlight: People-meeting location app
Shorts: Reveal your whole camera roll (Acq. Pinterest 2016)
Talkshow: Instant radio call-in shows
