It was early 2019 when I discovered the notorious “Get Rich Without Getting Lucky” thread by @naval.
I’d been running an agency business for a year already, and despite making a good living, it was annihilating me.
No two days the same, no two projects creating any semblance of compounding benefit.
Things I had become decent at while selling agency services: brand, design, content, and strategy.
Things I’m interested in personally: philosophy, technology, aesthetics, and commerce. “Productize yourself” I recalled, and Visualize Value was born, a combination of all of the above.
Next up was a level of creative constraint that would ensure I’d be building equity (creating recognizable work). A ridiculously simple rule: black canvas, white typography and geometry.
For 6 months I made at least one image every day, most days 3-4.
My network grew exponentially, and I got introduced to hundreds of brilliant people, many of which turned into clients and collaborators.
