Yesterday, I interviewed Gary Vaynerchuk. A lifelong dream manifested.
We spoke about…
- How he called my mom in 2011
- When he realized he might be the most famous person in the world
- Why he bought domain names related to hip-hop and wine …and gave them away for free
The interview will come out tomorrow (Wednesday) at 6am EST. Looking forward to your feedback!
Now to the treasure.
1. The Annual Review
This week, I stumbled across this incredible yearly review by high performance coach Steve Schlafman.
I was blown away.
Although it’s not free, you can name your price for it.
I’ll be talking to Steve later this week about it, as well as his coaching practice, and how to grow as a person. Looking forward to it!
2. Brick by brick
This 2-minute video from Will Smith lays out my philosophy for everything I do.
Whatever challenge you’re currently facing… ask yourself: can I simply lay this brick down as perfectly as possible?
Sometimes the mountain is overwhelming.
So don’t look at it.
Just focus on the next action.
3. Believe in yourself
Those who have been in the Tuesday Treasure family a while know that I’m a big fan of both Kanye West and Pat Walls.
(You can find my newly released podcast with Pat here.)
This quote is magical from the video above:
“My greatness doesn’t just come from the success of this record. It comes from just how I feel inside. I felt like I was the greatest in 8th grade, and I was far from having a record out. We were taught to believe in ourselves. To believe that we could do anything. You just wake up in the morning and you just feel good about life.”
4. A podcast for writers/creators
David Perell is a master of writing.
Nathan Barry is building a massive company that helped send this email (more on that below).
The two had a great conversation. They spoke about how to write a long-form piece, practical tips for someone trying to grow an audience, and much more.
5. The billion dollar blog.
Barry started his blog in 2011.
A decade later, he is building ConvertKit – a company that’s generating in $2.1 million in monthly recurring revenue.
He recently studied a bunch of different creators and asked…
How did these people turn their hobby into massive businesses? What did they do right? What did they do wrong?
It’s worth your time even if you’re not planning on building a billion dollar business.
That’s all for today folks! Hope you found something useful for you here.
As always, reply back with your favorite piece of treasure… I respond to every email. 🙂
To your success,
