Exposure, Proximity and Access: Bonus 2024 Edition
A note from our Founder...
Hello, future Guardian!
As 2023 comes to a close (wow, time flies), we are preparing to up level our way into 2024.
This year the focus has been on sinking time, effort, and bandwidth into rebuilding the Guardian Academy to:
Have the infrastructure to reach more people through digital and direct mail distribution. (This substack is part of the digital distribution)
Share that infrastructure with others in the community that have something they want to distribute. (You’ll notice a lot of Guardians are starting substacks as we share the reason why and the tactical side of things. If you have something to say to the world, we are happy to help any way we can)
Level up the opportunities, exposure, proximity, and access for Guardians in the Guardian Tier. (Wait until you see the footage from the last event)
Now, we're spending the last couple weeks of the year tying it all together for you. As things move around we will do our best to keep you updated
Here is what you need to know, right now:
FIRST... There are 6 dates on the calendar for meet-ups and events.
The first is Nicsmas Eve on December 27th and Nicsmas Day on December 28th. Both are in person in Tempe, Arizona. Since I know it's difficult to travel right between two Holidays, we aren't going to spend a bunch of time marketing it.
If you want to be in the room to hang out, mastermind, and get some cool free stuff - just let me know. Nicsmas is free for TGA Founding Members, Guardians, and Annual Letter subscribers. RSVP by replying to this email.
The rest of the dates can be found at:
You can bookmark that page if you’d like. It will be updated as new opportunities arise. If you’re one of those people that never bookmarks anything and then gets upset that you can’t find it later.. that’s okay. We made the URL REALLY easy to remember:
I promise it’s not a dating site, although… that’s not a bad idea.
Each event has a unique VIP experience before and/or after the event dates. It's never a bad idea to get in a day early and stay a day late if you're prone to fomo. Otherwise, you'll probably end up changing your flight(s) last minute to accommodate.
SECOND... The TGA office is moving to Tempe, Arizona.
If you've been to an event this year, you already know where it's at. If not, hopefully, you'll swing by soon. We will be opening up "office days and righteous hangs" randomly for Guardians to come to hang out, work on their stuff, and meet each other. Founding members will also get invites as time and capacity allow.
It's designed to be a collaborative environment.
If you're a Guardian, I encourage you to reach out to see if we can something scheduled soon.
If you're not a Guardian, that's okay. The community does a ton of "unofficial" stuff throughout the year and around the world. Head over to the unofficial Facebook Group to chat it up and see what’s going on amongst other members.
If you want to become a Guardian, now is great time (of course, I think any time is a great time). As of December of 2023, we are only enrolling five Guardians a month to ensure the experience is the best it can be for each.
Hope to hang soon
Live to Learn. Give To Earn.
The Guardian Academy
PS. If you are not a Guardian and never plan to be a Guardian, we still love you and there are still ways to get cool stuff. We just changed the “basic level” onboarding to include a form so you can opt into getting cool stuff in the mail. If you’re an ambassador, we are committed to helping you grow your audience because it also helps grow TGA!
