How to make yourself irreplaceable
How to use twitter spaces effectively
Happy Sunday everyone!
Every single one of you is so kind to subscribe to this newsletter and send me these lovely direct messages. I’m genuinely grateful for that and will continue to add value in every possible way.
Writing down my daily tasks, as well as weekly and monthly achievements, proved to be a game-changer for me. It helped me escape my comfort zone and saved me a lot of time. It basically feels like a roadmap, a blueprint of your future and since this is the first article of the month, I think it’s a great time to set some goals for February. Try to set some goals for this month and see how it works. You don't have to set huge goals. Aiming low is safer than not aiming at all.
I hope you have a dope Sunday. Enjoy your reading!
Grow your mindset: Make yourself irreplaceable
In every stage of your life, you have a role assigned next to your name. You start as a student when you get your first assignments and you have some kind of responsibility. Then you go to the university and you must pass a certain amount of exams and then it’s the workspace where you have deadlines and roadmaps to follow. And that applies to your relationships and basically every aspect of your life.
Therefore, we can see that there’s a correlation between responsibility and irreplaceability. The more responsibility you have over something the more valuable your input is. It's the same reason managers and CEOs are paid more than regular employees since their responsibilities are much greater.
So the bottom line is that if you want to make yourself irreplaceable in certain scenarios, all you need to do is to assign more responsibilities to yourself than others. You might say, well do I really need all these responsibilities?
As the quote goes by: “with great power comes great responsibility“. This works the other way around too, “great responsibility brings you great power“.
Not so fancy, but you get the idea.
Twitter Growth: Use Twitter spaces effectively
Spaces are a great tool that will take your brand-building to the next level. I know most of you are shy and don’t feel so comfortable being in the spotlight, but I need to tell you that hosting and participating in spaces will feel like a super mario mushroom for your growth.
Here are 3 ways to use spaces effectively for your growth:
1. Join small spaces
Small spaces are the best way to escape your comfort zone. It feels a lot easier to space with 5-10 people rather than 100. Consider it your playground. Joining small spaces and taking the mic can make you great connections. Usually, in those kinds of spaces, you can easily make friends, you can get to know other people and don’t be afraid to express your opinions. Not only that, but most importantly, you’ll get more confidence that will allow you to level up your strategy.
2. Join large stages
Once you get that confidence and speaking feels more natural, it’s time to get on a bigger stage. Speaking in a bigger space is a great way to add direct value and get an instant reflection in numbers. What’s good about spaces is that you can not only transmit information but emotions, and emotions are what will make the listener follow you. Personally, there were times I would join a space with 500-700 people and get 50 followers by just getting the mic and adding my input.
3. Host your spaces
Hosting your own spaces is the ultimate but it’s really hard too. You are the one that needs to organize the conversation, keep the vibes up, balance everything and save the space when it runs out of content. But hosting your own spaces is the best tool for your community, makes community building a lot easier than just tweets.
NFT News Report
Ryan Carson Drama
Ryan Carson, a well-known web3 developer and influencer, revealed this Friday, the launch of a new fund called Flux. In that announcement, Carson stated to raise 10 million dollars with the support of 100 investors and claimed that many big names such as Gary Vee, Gmoney, Von Doom, 9gagceo, andr3w and many more.
One of the investors’ criteria to enter the fund is a minimum investment of 160,000$. However, some of the above-mentioned investors invested only 10k and others did not sign anything
To me, it looks like Carson used this unethical tactic to create FOMO on his project. And it’s not the first time he faces accusations of unethical behavior in the web3 space. It’s time to start questioning the incentives of our crypto influencers, and from my experience, most of them aren’t as transparent as you think.
Open Edition Meta
For the past couple of weeks, we see a huge wave of open editions from artists to projects. For example, NessGraphics, managed to generate over 1400E from his open edition and there are a lot of people going down that rabbit hole.
I feel that this is really dangerous from an investment perspective since following trends is always a bad idea plus I don’t see any logic in tokenomics. Do whatever you got to do but always be cautious with your moves, not everyone wants your best and has pure motives.
Cool Cats Rebrand
Cool Cats is one of the first projects from the BAYC/CryptoPunks era with great history and over 120,000E in volume. A couple of months ago, they launched their game but it didn’t go as expected and that drove their floor price from ~17E to 2E.
They’ve decided to take action thought and they come up with a public town hall earlier this week. Their vision is to onboard 1,000,000 million users to their platform and they said to treat the project as an over 10-year mission. You can find more information on this video and on their website.
