We launched the 7-Figure Small podcast last year as a natural evolution of the unemployable concept. The big idea, as stated right there in the podcast description, was to share compelling stories and actionable strategies for creative freelancers and entrepreneurs looking to live the “7-Figure Small” lifestyle.
And we’ve done that.
But things in our world have changed quite a bit over the last 18-24 months, and that change has been reflected in the content here on the podcast.
Web 3.0 has come hurtling down the tracks like a freight train, seeming to pick up speed every day as the tools empowered by blockchain technology — like creator coins, NFTs, and DAOs — become more and more accessible. In turn, the stories and actionable strategies we’re sharing have changed, by necessity.
It even led to the creation of a new educational community, Future Freedom, which you can — and should — learn more about over at futurefreedom.com. In fact, when you go there, you can enter your email address to get a free email course from Brian that will help you create your ideal future, on your terms, by explaining the keys to succeeding in the new creator economy.
And Forest Linden, our guest this week on 7-Figure Small, is really the perfect guest to bridge the gap between the old 7-Figure Small podcast and the evolved 7-Figure Small podcast.
Because he is a case study in how to build an audience-first, one-or-two-person business that can scale to six figures and beyond. He is also a true native of the emerging web 3.0 landscape in just about the most fundamental way possible — by being a former miner of Bitcoin and Ether.
Forest currently runs Clarity Lab, where he helps people and businesses find the best software for their online businesses and scale their revenue
He has also helped his wife grow her mid-six-figure business The Art of Money, founded a six-figure online business called Tech Husband, and earned more than $200,000 in one year by selling an online course teaching people how to build websites in Joomla.
In this conversation, we hit on a number of topics:
- The throughline that has driven his career choices.
- How Forest went from living in a tent and playing music for money to running six-figure technology businesses.
- The good and bad of being an unemployable.
- How he's thinking about opportunity in the metaverse.
- The fundamentals that continue to endure for audience builders and online entrepreneurs.
- Why it all ultimately boils down to relationships and being helpful, not matter what technology platform you're on.
- Plus, he runs through a few of his favorite tools for content entrepreneurs.
