I'm building some products in the next few months and thought it would be cool to keep a build journal.
Here's what I'm building over the next 90 days
Alright, C2C Lab is live and in the world. I have been totally overwhelmed by the response and all the people who have purchased it so far.
So, I gave myself a day to rest and I'm back into 'build' mode. Next up I'll be completing the 30 Day Experiment Field Guide + Tracker. Part Notion template to track your 30 days experiments, part ebook/guide to how to use 30 days experiments to level up your life.
Along with my daily atomic essays I'll be writing a 250 'essay' for the field guide. That's 18 essays by the time we launch or a 4,500 word guide. Not too shabby.

Worked a little on the template yesterday, making sure it's ready for other people to use (not just me). Today's tasks:
May 16, 2021
Today I'm knuckling down to get my landing page done and pre-launch... launched. Got a handful of people on Twitter who are interested and I'll be sending it out to my database tonight.
Pricing 😬 so hard.
OK. So I didn't think I'd have the bandwidth today to finish the landing page and get the pre-launch out. But we are here. Just need to work out how to connect memberspace and then I'M LAUNCHING. Pre-Sale Is PUBLISHED... WTF!?!
May 15, 2021
Ok, it's getting SUPER real now. Built out the bone of my membership area, which of course is going to be hosted on Notion. I had played around with Mighty Networks, but it's just such a big setup for what I want. So I'm going to use Memberspace to lock down a shared few pages in my Notion.
Here's what it looks like so far...
This is surreal, that in only a few days I've gone from just two random templates to a really clear product with a really clear outcome for what I want for people who purchase. Today I'm going to work on a landing page and pre-launch pricing page and hopefully launch that sometime next week to get some early traction.
Quick To Do List
May 14, 2021
OK, so after much thinking and talking to people, I've decided that I'm going to combine my Growth & Creator Hub templates + Mini Workshop. Templates are great, but complex ones are often overwhelming and have been built and developed over time.
I want to make sure that people get the most out of the template including a deep dive into the workflow of how to use it.
Still on track for a June 1 launch, except now I have to move up the mini workshop too!
Excited for this, as it combines both my passions of building templates and teaching workflows.
Also, names? What to call this thing? Big Brain Dump Coming...
- The Prolific Creators Kit
- Ultimate Creators Hub
- The Consumer to Creator Canvas
- The Creators Content Lab
- Idea Launchpad
- Build A Unique Content Ecosystem and Workflow that takes you from consumer to creator of content (pretty sure this will be the subhead). Also something about remixing content. I think remix will be the logo.
- In this workshop, I will walk you through how to create your unique content ecosystem in order to capture, consume and process content into prolific ideas and notes. And remix those notes into ideas and content for output on the internet.
- Consume. Think. Create. Publish. Repeat
- Purposeful Consumption
- Toolbox for Creative Pros
- The media machine - or the something machine?
- Idea Canvas
- Content Compass
- The New Content Creation Playbook
- Harness the Power of Content
- Proactive Content Creation
- Prolific Content Creator
- Create. Consume. Connect.
- Content Catalyst
Ok that was a big brain dump. Now it's out there on Twitter to see what resonates with people...
EARLY CONCEPT ARTWORK
May 13, 2021
So not so much any building happening today, but I've added one more thing to the list. I got an invitation code to Racket and I've been wondering what I want to do with it. This morning I realised that what I LOVE to hear about is people's workflows.
Not just work workflows, but life workflows. How people find ease and flow in their lives and I'd love to do 9 minute interviews with some of my favourite people about how they find focus, energy and flow in their life.
So, going to reach out to some of my friends and line up some interviews!
May 11, 2021
Well today was interesting. After a 2 hour conversation with Samantha Postman I came away bursting with ideas and added two extra products to the list I'm building. Super excited to bring a collaboration between us with the Twitter Spaces Dashboard. And another solo idea to package my experience of using VA's over the last 10 years.
Stay tuned. But first to finish the Creators Kits.
May 10, 2021
I've decided to change the name of both hubs to better represent an outcome, rather than what it actually is.
👉 The Knowledge Hub is now The Growth Hub
👉 The Content Hub is now The Creation Hub
Naming is important. For me, it's about the intention I'm bringing when I open up the dashboard. Am I just here to consume or am I here to grow? Am I here to do content, or to create inspiring things.

This morning I was up early duplicating my workspaces and preparing them for production. For both I have added some callout buttons at the top to get to each of the sections in the dashboards quickly
