The Journey to 1000

I’m obsessed with the idea of 1000 True Fans.

Hell, this entire publication is built around it. My goal here is nothing short of bringing Kevin Kelly’s paradigm to life for any artist or creator who wants it.

My other (much scarier) goal is to build this business in public—to give you unprecedented access to everything that happens behind the scenes.

And that brings us to this short article.

By the end of 2021, I hope to have 1000 paid members for Ungated, and 100 for The Citizen Within.

Think of this post as a dynamic scoreboard of sorts. Every Monday morning, I’ll update the totals below, and you can track my progress towards 1000.

Here’s where I’m currently at.

Ungated Members: 35

  • November 23, 2020: 33 lifetime members, 2 yearly members
  • November 16, 2020: 30 lifetime members, 1 yearly member
  • November 9, 2020: 27 lifetime members, 1 yearly member
  • November 2, 2020: 22 lifetime members, 1 yearly member

Citizen Within Members: 1

  • November 23, 2020: 6 free members, 1 paid member
  • November 16, 2020: 6 free members, 1 paid member
  • November 9, 2020: 5 free members, 1 paid member
  • November 2, 2020: 3 free members, 1 paid member

If you’re looking for some deeper insights behind these numbers, check out The Inside Scoop, a newsletter where I’m radically, uncomfortably transparent about every aspect of my business.

Or better yet, become a full member yourself to unlock a bunch of premium content, and join a community of focused, entrepreneurial creators, all on the journey to create their own true fans.
