Behind on the 1% Club? Let me catch you up!
Read on for your weekly 1% roundup. This Newsletter in particular, is definitely not one to miss! Vol. 8
Do you love GM’s and GM culture?
If you answered yes (like the good degen you are), then I have some good news!
Every single day, I curate the best GM messages from across the space, and share them all together in one single post, so that you can start your day off right.
Stop wasting your time scrolling the vastness of Twitter to get your daily dose of GM positivity, and let me do it for you!
Today is the first ever day of me doing this. If you:
a) like this initiative
b) are feeling generous right now
or c) are breathing
I would really appreciate your support:
And secondly, a short story from this week:
This week I had a really cool personal experience. I met and had a conversation with none other than Tyler Hobbs.
For those that don’t know, Tyler is the creator of Fidenza, co-creator of QQL, and probably the most famous generative artist in the world.
Story: Somehow I managed to get an RSVP to the opening reception of his debut solo exhibition in London. We shook hands and exchanged greetings, discussed a particular piece that had caught my eye, and spoke about some things he had done in the past. There were many things I forgot to ask him in the rush of the moment.
One thing that particularly struck me, was his genuine care and authenticity. He truly cared about the conversation, deeply listened to the things I had to say, and remembered both mine and my friends name when we said our goodbyes. As such a huge fan, it meant a lot. He’s a very inspiring person all-round.
And finally one last thing, the Newsletter just broke 1.2k Subscribers. A big thank you to every single one of you for supporting me, it really means a lot
Anyway, those are just a few things I wanted to share. Sorry for this section being a bit long this week.
Onto the Newsletter!
Weekly Roundup of all 1% Club News:
This week we had an influx of new members to the 1% Community, bringing the total up to 663! This was due to the fact that we recently opened up a free member section to the Discord, allowing people to get a little taste of what they get before joining. So far it has been super successful, and I look forward to connecting with all the new people over the coming weeks. Make sure to give them all a warm welcome!
We also got the addition of two brand new channels.
Firstly, #🏆share-your-wins! This is a great new channel that’s been seeing a lot of engagement. Super useful for celebration and motivation.
Secondly, #1percent-tweets! This channel is used to spotlight any great 1% Club-related Tweets, so that the whole community can engage and support it.
Last but certainly not least, huge congratulations to J0ngA, our new Community Leader! J0ngA runs the hugely successful Accountability Meeting every single week, and is a frequent daily member of the Work-with-me Live-streams. This promotion was hugely deserved, and I’m super glad to have him on the team. Thank you for everything you do for the community J0ngA!
The past 2 winners for the ‘1% Better: Rewards’ content competition are being announced tomorrow, along with a mystery member who’s being rewarded just for being an exemplary community member. NFTGod will be announcing all three winners in a Thread tomorrow, so make sure to keep your eyes out on his Twitter!
After this, the content challenge will resume it’s normal schedule with another winner this Thursday. The topic is still ANYTHING! So create to your hearts desire and post it in #submit-your-content to be in with a chance to win a ‘1% Better: Rewards’ NFT, and a Twitter shoutout from NFTGod!
This week we had one Newsletter from NFTGod on Thursday 9th March. In this edition, he talks about the long and difficult road to success. As Alex explains, the ride is a bumpy one, but as long as you never give up, you’ll get there eventually. Read it for yourself here:
And finally, last week we had the continuation of our amazing Club Calls. They’re all recorded if you need to catch up. Here’s what you missed:
Daily Work-with-me Pomodoro Live-streams all day with myself (unrecorded).
Amir’s Club Call on Graphic Design & Creation. As well as a graphics and visual content tutorial, Amir does live reviews of people’s Twitter profiles, giving free advice and tips as he went, and even creating graphics for people for free.
J0ngA’s Accountability Meeting. As usual this meeting was a banger, and helps many people achieve their goals.
Lonewolfs Mental Health in Web3 Club Call. Super easy to forget in the rush of the hustle, but very important to stay on top of.
And finally, last weeks weekly Town Hall was on Sunday, hosted by NFTGod.
Community Spotlight ‘Deep Dive’:
This section is used to deep-dive on one Community Member at a time, to give them the chance to talk about anything and everything they are doing in the Web3 Space.
For this week please give a warm welcome to our seventh guest, TheChunkyFtw!
1. Who is Chunky?
Hey everyone, I’m Chunky!
This nickname that’s been stuck with me since elementary school. Never have I thought I’d make a brand out of this name within Web3.
I'm someone who's always seeking out new experiences because I believe that life is too short to stay in one place forever. Whether it's playing music in a band, flying a plane, running businesses, or creating content on Twitter, I find excitement in exploring new opportunities and pushing myself beyond my limits.
I also have a passion for photography, travelling, and vlogging. In fact, this is why I am obsessed with content creation. It allows me to live life and then share my experience with others.
Currently, I’m focused on building a brand in Web3.
2. What did you do before Web3?
Prior to Web3, I ran two businesses: house painting and Web2 digital marketing (1 year each). The house painting business is where I learned the most. It shaped me into the person I am today. I also had the best coach to learn from who I truly admire.
That experience also taught me how crucial it is to maintain a positive mindset when striving to achieve our goals.
In December 2021, I transitioned my Web2 digital marketing agency to Web3 after finding interest in the digital fashion industry. While it would have been intriguing to continue that path, it is not where I feel I fit in this journey. Not long after, I found my way into an NFT project (Mighty Minions) where I worked as a mod and later promoted to a community manager.
3. What are you working on at the moment?
Right now, I’m working in 2 NFT projects as a community manager. One in which is SolGats and the other is undisclosed for now. I may look for more options to eventually be working in Web3 full-time. Project development is what I enjoy doing and this is the perfect place for me to do so.
I write content about project growth and personal development on Twitter daily. Seeing the positive impact my content has on my friends and surroundings puts a smile on my face every day. This is why I enjoy building my personal brand.
My objective is to build a strong and recognizable brand, along with a community of creators and innovators who share my vision. Together, we can propel the growth of the Web3 space by educating people about NFTs and fostering project development. I have a strong conviction in both the potential of Web3 and our collective ability to shape the future.
I’m currently building my Twitter and newsletter, but eventually I plan on expanding to YouTube, TikTok and Instagram.
4. What is one thing you wish more people would know?
I want people to know it’s okay to try new things and get out of your comfort zone.
I didn’t know much about NFTs prior to become a mod in an NFT project. Furthermore, I had 0 painting and business experience prior to starting my painting business. I also never considered myself a good writer, but many people said what I do inspired them.
Many times, you just have to start and figure out along the way. You don’t need to be the best at anything to start.
I get that self-doubt and imposter syndrome can kick in, and I got to say, I had the biggest imposter syndrome when running my first business, but I still figured it out either way one problem at a time. It’s a common problem amongst many people, and you just have to deal with it.
5. What is one thing you want to leave people with at the end of this newsletter?
I want people to know that making connections is key to success!
Throughout my business years, I’ve made so many valuable connections where we helped each other through our struggles. Surrounding myself with like-minded people also motivated me to keep my head in the game. And building connections in Web3 is no different.
If you’ve read this far, I’d love to connect with you. Let’s help each other at being 1% better every day and make our goals happen!
You can find me on:
Discord: TheChunkyFtw ✈#7777
Peace and Have a great day!

Chunky has an amazing brand, and writes the most aesthetic Threads on Twitter in my opinion. We’ve recently been talking about whether changing the font in your Threads reduces engagement, but definitive results remain to be seen, and requires more research. Following the wise words of the master himself, I’m glad to add someone as valuable as Chunky (that I look up to for inspiration myself) to my list of connections.
Our ‘Deep Dive’ guest from Vol. 6 of the 1% Club Community Newsletter (2 weeks ago) ‘Chris The Shreditor’ managed to reach 100’000 subscribers on his Youtube channel FlyRyde, a channel focused on custom lighting for cars. A huge achievement. Congrats Chris!
And our very own GregLunt went viral for the first time on Twitter, with a Thread on his daily productivity routine reaching 350k views:
It has been an incredibly productive week in the 1% community. A round of applause to everyone who continues to show up & hold themselves accountable each week 👏
