Hey Career Hackers!
Welcome to this week’s edition of The Weekly 6, where I go into 6 things I’m pumped on this week.
It’s a lovely morning as I write this from Montuak, Long Island, sipping my morning SUTRA, and expressing gratitude for the work I get to do day in and day out.

1. This Week’s Podcast Episode
Jayson Gaignard is the founder of Mastermind Talks, the Mastermind Community, and the host of the Community Made podcast. Jayson runs an event for 150 people once a year, charting between $10,000 and $12,000 per ticket. He has one employee, incredible margins, and is the classic example of someone who jumped off of the proverbial cliff and learned how to fly on the way down. His events have featured the likes of Tim Ferriss & Gary Vaynerchuk. On this episode, Jayson shares with us the things he’s learned along his journey. You won’t want to miss it.
2. career hack of the week
Diversify your finances, not attention. As stated in a previous newsletter, anything more than 4 hours per week is a second job. Less is a side or passion project. I spoke to a high powered CMO a few days ago and we were discussing how he could diversify without losing focus on the main role at hand.
The key is to let your network and your money go to work for you, not find other ways to work. So, work hard and build a network and some savings, then deploy it to work for you wisely.
3. thought I’m Pondering
“You only make 15-20 decisions in life that truly and materially matter.”
I’ve never realized this until recently, and forgot where the concept originated, but we make thousands of decisions per day, and maybe tens if not hundreds of millions in our entire lives, but you life to this point can probably be traced back to 8-10 big decisions. It’s crazy to think about, but is actually spot on.
4. What I’m Wearing
I really like these Smather’s and Branson sandals. I got my first pair in 2015 at a random store in Austin, TX. The wore well and never really weathered, look great in almost anything even with nice summer clothing, and we’re super comfortable. I just scooped a new pair. Check em out!
5. What I’m Learning
Last week I wrote about a new product Kettle and Fire Bone Broth. I also started a healthy coffee alternative made with superfoods called SUTRA. So it’s only natural I started to learn more about Ketosis and Intermittent Fasting. Thanks to my friend and SUTRA co-founder Matt Tamasi.Read more about Keto here. Read more about Intermittent Fasting here. Working on compiling more resources.
6. what i’m reading
Good to Great by Jim Collins. I read this a few years ago and felt like I needed a refresher. Jim has a great way of looking at how to build exceptional companies. It’s impossible for everyone to be above average, so there really is a big difference between a good company and a great company. Highly recommend the read if you’re an entrepreneur, aspiring entrepreneur, or early stage employee looking to build a lasting company.
