For The Second Time, You Can Buy My Future

Jason Zook, BuyMyFuture

UPDATE: BuyMyFuture is now closed (it was open September 20 – October 4, 2016)

Selling is a necessary evil. Marketing is a necessary evil. Promoting the things you create so you can make money, enjoy life, and continue to create things is a necessary evil. We all deal with these pain points as we try to grow our businesses.

But it got me wondering… could there be another way?

For the past few years, I’ve focused on building products that teach people lessons from my experiences. Be it online courses, workshops, web applications, or my book, I’ve enjoyed creating this value exchange:

I learn a lesson >>
I create something to help others learn from my experience >>
People pay for that thing (my value) >>
People learn the same lesson and apply it to their lives (their value)

This value exchange works. In fact, it’s a very popular way for people to make money. I’m certainly not the first person to execute this strategy.

But the more that I create, the more I end up having to sell. And while I may be good at the selling part, that doesn’t mean I enjoy it or want to keep doing it. I’m guessing many of you reading this can relate. Selling is hard.

Last year, I had a thought. And turned that thought into a reality:

What if I just sold one thing? My future.

That brings us to BuyMyFuture, arguably the biggest project of my life.

BuyMyFuture is the opportunity to purchase access to my life’s work (including past and future projects), along with access to an incredibly popular private community.

This is the second time I’m opening up the sale of my future. Read what first-year buyer Brendan Hufford had to say about purchasing BuyMyFuture:

“It’s the best money I’ve ever invested in a ‘marketing’ purchase in my life. I’ve bought a few courses for $1k+ and the value that BMF has delivered is easily 100X compared to those.”

Let me be absolutely clear on what buying my future means and what you’ll get:

  • Access to all of my existing AND upcoming projects and tools (17 total projects: 12 existing and 5 upcoming, $6,000 in value).
  • First dibs on everything else I make. For free. Forever. (I average 4 projects per year, suffice to say, there’s much more to come!)
  • Entry to the vibrant and exclusive BuyMyFuture community, with quarterly calls & annual reports updating you on what I’m working on.
  • A say in what I make next, so you get what you need, when you need it.
  • A complimentary jetpack. (Just kidding. Or am I?)

What you get with BuyMyFuture

The existing 12 products that you’ll get access to are as follows:

  1. Lifetime access to Teachery (my custom-designed course-building software so you can build and sell your own online courses)
  2. How To Get Sponsorships For Anything (a 12-lesson course with 7 bonus videos)
  3. How To Get Sponsorships For Podcasts (a 6-lesson course with 6 bonus videos)
  4. One Week To Profit (a 7-day, step-by-step digital guide to help you make more money with your business)
  5. Finish Your Damn Book (a 10-lesson course to take you from zero to published author)
  6. Lifetime access to Bumpsale (custom-created software that lets you set the price of your product and then increase the price incrementally after each sale)
  7. Product to Profit (a 6-module masterclass with three bonus videos)
  8. Creativity For Sale (my first book, wherein I document my entrepreneurial journey. Digital copy.)
  9. New in 2016: Podcast Like A Boss (a 7-module-plus-bonus course created with the genius bosses behind the Being Boss podcast)
  10. New in 2016: How Dare You (a 7-module course with 2 bonus videos where Paul Jarvis and I share how to put more of your personality into your brand)
  11. New in 2016: EasyCourse (a 30-day course that will give you literally every step you need to build an online course)
  12. New in 2016: Lifetime access to ofCourseBooks (custom-designed software that makes it super easy to create workbooks for your online courses)

You get lifetime access to all these courses, guides, and books, but I mention it for the software products because I want it to be clear: You’ll never pay a single dollar to use those for as long as they (and the Internet) exist.

I’m also guaranteeing you 100% free access to these awesome upcoming projects:

  • Project #13: An analytics platform for people who don’t like analytics (software)
  • Project #14: A community directory tool (software)
  • Project #15: My second book (book, obviously)
  • Project #16: An email marketing application (software)
  • Project #17: A community-built course on sales/launching (course)

All of these projects will be delivered in the next 12 months!

Also included with your purchase of BuyMyFuture is access to the BuyMyFuture community (Slack channel). This has, by far, been the most coveted piece of my future by the first group of buyers.

You get to join a growing community of like-minded individuals: professional bowlers, comic book authors, developers, fiber artists, locksmiths, doctors, wedding coordinators, paleo chefs, and entrepreneurs/business owners from many other walks of life.

BuyMyFuture Community Slack Channel

It truly is a diverse (and amazing) group of people!

“To me, the BuyMyFuture community has been the biggest and most unexpected benefit of buying Jason’s future. I don’t think any of us knew what we’d be getting in that respect, which was an instant community of new friends and business connections from all over the world. This is a group that shares my quirky and unconventional approach to business, and that is always available to answer questions, develop ideas, and encourage one another. It’s the coolest community I’ve ever been a part of. I can’t wait to meet even more of you out there!” – Chantel Hamilton

Oh, and you’ll get access to anything I will ever create… for the rest of my life… at no additional charge. If you buy my future for $1,500 between September 20 and October 4, you will never pay me another dollar for anything I ever create. Forever.

All the BuyMyFuture goodies

While I’m excited to share all the things I’ve made and will make to help you teach more, sell more, and create more, I’m really pumped for the BuyMyFuture community to expand. You get to hang out and converse with like-minded entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, and business owners, but you also get unprecedented access to me.

Don’t take my word for it. Here’s what Diandra Asbaty said about the BuyMyFuture community:

“It’s so awesome to be inside a community of entrepreneurs just like me—but in their industry. I feel like we all have the same passion for finding what’s working in business right now, and the passion to help people figure out some sort of problem they struggle with.”

What to do now?

 

UPDATE: BuyMyFuture is now closed (it was open September 20 – October 4, 2016)

My goal is to assemble a group of action-takers interested in living, working, and making money on their own terms, and in their own unique ways. On top of these fine friends, you’ll have every tool, app, book, resource, and program I’ve got to help you get where you want to go. I don’t want to keep my secrets of success hidden — I want to share them with people who need them, want them, and can expand on them. Cool people. People like you.

I’ll leave you with one more testimonial from BuyMyFuture buyer Nathan Ruff:

“It’s an investment, not an expense, and it’s worth every penny.”

To the future!
