If our once, little Slack group wasn’t an awesome resource before, at 10,000+ vetted members, it sure as heck is now. Everyday, new members are joining, members are collaborating, hiring other members, and getting up to all other kinds of shenanigans.
As we’ve all heard at nauseum, your network is your net worth. If you aren’t leveraging this community to expand your network, you are missing out. Don’t take my word for it, there are literally dozens of active individuals from fortune 500 companies, venture backed startups and more, in our midst. Ask around! Get to know one another, and you’ll see.
Protip: there are local Slack channels, perhaps even one in your city. If not, start one. Working in front of a computer, on our phones or the like can be isolating. Chances are there are more OGs than you think, and like you they’d love to grab coffee and talk shop.
Haven’t logged into the Online Geniuses Slack group lately? You’re missing out! Log-In and say ‘Hi’. I miss you!
Also follow OG on Instagram to see pics of our past events and like us on Facebook to get updated on all of our events, AMAs and more.

Every week in the hangout channel, you folks share your most recent accomplishments and we all get to learn a little bit more about each other. It’s at 1:00 pm est in the the #hangout channel. All other days, share your victories in Shameless_plug. Every month this list sends hundreds of clicks to OG members!
Here are some of the kick-ass things OG’ers did recently:
@thanybethanybe freaked out a bunch of writers and designers by saying AI is taking over 😆
If you folks want to appear above, share your accomplishments with us every Friday. Note the format above. The easier you make it for me to figure out why you are awesome, the more likely it is that you’ll find yourself here.
Each month I try to bring you my favorite articles, books and casts. I am a total information glutton. More inputs than I could possibly action in my lifetime. I don’t recommend this, but it sure makes recommending good reading/listening easy!
