I’ve been asked a few times what members can expect from the new private community of creatives/innovators making real estate, financial independence, & home ownership more accessible using technology.
You can read about the vision here.
The focus of the community is two fold:
- Curate the most incredible and diverse membership of the real estate creatives, doers, and creators in the world.
- Make our members wildly successful in their careers building real estate companies.
In terms of logistics, what can community members expect?
Forum: Membership includes membership in a private Facebook group where members can post questions, make connections, and seek advice. Though the “forum” is on Facebook now, the plan is to migrate to a standalone platform such as Mighty Networks once we have more members (50+).
Email Newsletter: On a weekly or bi-weekly basis, I curate news and deliver strategic industry and product insights via a private newsletter. Over time, more and more of my content will be shared privately with the community rather than publicly on this blog.
Content on GEB: Members are allowed one post on Geek Estate every quarter. This could be a job opportunity you’re looking to hire for, or a special promo you’re willing to offer Geek Estate Blog’s audience. Examples are here and here.
Consulting: I’ve stopped taking all small consulting projects. Therefore, anyone who wants my time/help/attention going forward will be directed to join the community. I’ll do whatever I can to help members, but won’t be spending time with non-member entrepreneurs anymore. If you’re not serious enough to spend $97 for a 3 month membership (less for founding members), the chances you’ll implement any advice I’d give you are fairly minimal. And if you’re not going to implement (or at a minimum seriously consider) my advice, you’re wasting my time as well as your own. Keep in mind $97 is less than one hour of my time on a short term consulting basis. Worst case, as a member you’ll receive my time and advice. Best case, you receive advice from an entire community of knowledgeable & diverse advisers.
