It’s Time…

19 months ago I started a journey. I sent out my first tweet as NFT God.

I’m going to be honest with you, at the time I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t satisfied with my life at all.

My job left me feeling drained. Weekends were just recovery from 5 days straight of working for the man.

I was living for the weekend and then spending the entire weekend scared of Monday.

I was on a treadmill. A treadmill that was going to have me walking in place until I could retire at 75.

Then everything changed. I started writing under NFT God. I started writing this newsletter. I built my 1% Better business.

It was the key I’ve been looking for my entire life. It was my key to freedom.

If you’re anything like me you’ve been fighting for freedom too. Fighting to find a way to build something of your own. Something that will give you the freedom to do what you want day in and day out.

With that being said, I’ve been working for the last several months to put all my knowledge together in one resource. Everything I’ve learned from going to 0-130,000 followers. From 0-26,000 subscribers. From 0 to 6 figures of revenue off the business.

I’d like to introduce you to my master class, The Twitter Growth Master Class. It isn’t just a Twitter course though. It’s a master class that teaches you A-Z everything you need to know to find your purpose the same way I did.

It’s me guiding you on finding your voice, ideating unlimited ideas, creating viral content that gets you a massive, loyal audience, and how to monetize it so you can start building the business of your dreams.

This is everything you need to know about growing your account, building a community of loyal followers, and turning it into a business that gives you purpose.

I truly believe you can do the same thing as me with enough practice, and more importantly, enough focus.

Every lesson, template, spreadsheet, tip, trick, hack, strategy, and AI prompt you need to build your following is in here. Plus an entire suite of videos with me walking you through every single concept so that it’s SUPER easy to learn.

The presale for the master class opens NOW and lasts until the course launches fully on August 21st.

The pre-sale price is 30% off the full retail price. When the course launches on August 21st, the discount goes away and the course is only available to purchase for 4 days (if you buy the course you have access forever).

Once the 4 days is up I’m shutting down the sale of the course and working with all the students to get feedback and iterate. The course is probably not opening up again until the end of the year.

This is a living breathing course. I’ll be making updates and adding on as time goes by.

To be clear, if you want to ensure access on day 1 for a heavily discounted price, make sure you preorder. Once the course launches it’ll only be open for 4 days without the discount, then the sale closes. If you purchase before the sale closes, you have unlimited access forever and will receive all updates.

Can’t wait to get started working with everyone! This has been the summation of all my work the last 19 months. EVERYTHING I’ve learned is in here. I absolutely cannot wait to get it into your hands.

Sitting Still is Death

If your goal is building something special, something of your own, something that will break you free from the matrix, the absolute worst thing you can possibly do is sit still.

Let me explain

99% of people are waiting for the one big idea. The one breakthrough. Waiting around for the answer to their problems to slap them upside the head.

It doesn’t work like that. The answer isn’t coming. What you’ve been waiting for isn’t going to happen for you.

You need to start going for it. You need to start failing quick then learning.

COVID. March 2020. I’m locked down in my shoe box apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

I wish you could have seen this place. No windows in the living room or kitchen. My bedroom is big enough for a desk and a tiny little IKEA laptop desk.

Can finally stop pretending I like going out to bars and club.

So I pick up a course on Python. (Code Academy is awesome by the way).

Never coded in Python before. Was starting off fresh.

A few weeks in I decide to pivot and build a project. I start coding a stock scanner in Python.

Crypto starts recovering from the pandemic dip. It’s all people were talking about.

So I pivot again. Instead of a stock scanner I start building a crypto scanner.

While researching crypto I come across this goofy picture called a Cryptopunk that recently sold for $15,000. Unreal. Who the f*ck would buy a picture for thousands of dollars?

I pivot again, now I’m building an NFT scanner.

The more I look into NFTs, the more I fall in love with the technology. I’m absolutely obsessed.

So I make another micro pivot, I start an NFT Twitter account. What’s the most obnoxious username I can come up with? NFT God will do.

I absolutely love writing about NFTs. So I start a newsletter and start asking for emails.

Both accounts start growing quick. I’m getting a lot of asks to help out with social media.

So I make another micro pivot and start consulting. Then I pivot again and start a community.

19 months later I’ve quit my job and am doing what I love full time. Dreams and goals I’ve had my entire life are accomplished.

I didn’t wake up one day and think “O man I gotta start an NFT Twitter account and newsletter and build a community!”.

No, instead I just took an online Python course. I didn’t know what I was going to do with Python. I didn’t know what my path to success would be. I just wanted to do SOMETHING.

Micro pivot after micro pivot after micro pivot and here I am. A position I always dreamed of.

The right thing to do isn’t going to present itself. It isn’t going to make itself obvious.

You need to keep doing the wrong thing until you find the right thing.

The worst thing you can do is nothing at all.
