Off the Record with Ezra Firestone: How To Create Courses & Community (and Overcome Depression)

This week we let you eavesdrop on Ryan Moran and Ezra Firestone talking candidly about a number of things at the recent Capitalism Conference. We wanted to share their awesome insights with you.

Show Notes

Provide an enticing reason for people to enroll in your newly-launched courses. If you’re trying to break out as a business mentor, you need to onboard people quickly, so that they can use word-of-mouth to let others know how much value you’re providing. Ezra does this by launching early “beta versions” as a discount, requiring attendees to provide written feedback.

This draws an early audience and lets you tailor future versions to better cater to your niche. A win-win!

There are other tactics besides medication for depression. Ezra’s read up a lot about depression, and while he’s not a psychologist, he’s learned that even getting a better night’s sleep can make a big difference.

Beyond that, he’s read about how depression is a lot like grief, except you are grieving for yourself. If you find yourself down a lot of the time, reach out to a professional for guidance.

Building connections with others is what drives us. We’ve “detribed”; we no longer live in small groups, but as individuals in massive societies. But we get so many rewards from making connections, whether it’s emotional, financial, or even neurochemical.

That’s why Ryan and Ezra are exploring the idea of buying up land and building their own communities, so they can create a space where meaningful connections are easier to grasp.

Hope you enjoy being a “fly on the wall”, listening in on Ryan and Ezra’s off-the-record talk in this episode!
