Weekly roundup of all 1% Club news, for you!
Here's all the up-to-date information on the 1% Club that you need to know. Vol. 4
I’m going to keep this personal section from me super short this week:
1) The Pomodoro Work-with-me sessions have continued to be a great success. I run them for multiple hours every single day (11 days in a row and counting), and the number of people joining is gradually growing. I hope to see you all there!
2) Newsletter subscribers go brrrrr…
Let’s go to the Newsletter!
Weekly Roundup of all 1% Club News:
As of today (13/02/2023) we have 497 1% Club Discord Members! Let's keep the growth going, and make sure to give a warm welcome to all the newcomers. As always we continue to be an amazing community!
Firstly, we have a huge congratulations to Tamara7x for her well-deserved promotion to Community Leader. As a 1% Club OG, Tamara is always around helping out and making everyone smile. Thank you for being here Tamara!
Our second congratulations of the week goes to J0ngA for winning last week’s ‘1% Club: Rewards’ content challenge. The winning Thread is linked here:
J0ngA has an incredible life story that perfectly represents the values of the 1% Club. In this Thread he talks about how staying true to who you are and never giving up will always carry you through hard times. I strongly encourage everyone to read and take lessons from it.
J0ngA also runs our Club Accountability Community Initiative, more on that later.
This week we also got lucky with another two Newsletters from NFTGod. 9th February- Here NFTGod talks about the recent mess the Twitter algorithm has found itself in, and how to adapt (or not adapt):
12th February- Here NFTgod talks about shifting your mentality away from goals, and more towards directional purpose.
On Tuesday we also had our first ever Accountability Meeting. This was one of the most highly requested sections of the Newsletter, which you can tell because it was a huge success with many people showing up for the meeting. These are held weekly every Tuesday and ran by J0ngA (top-right of the image). These Accountability Meetings have their own place in the Community Newsletter down below. Be sure to join this week’s meeting!
The Club Calls continue to be an incredibly successful use of the 1% Club! Here are some of the one we had last week:
Ai Tools for Creators led by VictoriaInWeb3 which led to the creation to the AI Resources Forum
Creative Process using Notion & Google Sheets by NFTGod
As usual, our general Weekly 1% Club Call on Friday
And then earlier today we had another weekly Meditation Session hosted by our Community Leader, Lonewolf
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 fourth guest, S4mmy.ETH!
1. Who is S4mmyEth?
I am someone with a selective, addictive personality. I traverse deep down rabbit holes, which is how I stumbled into web3.
I quit my full-time corporate job of 10 years because I was frustrated with the slow, predictable progression. I wanted something to put my own stamp on, where I reap the rewards directly. There’s no safety net and I’m at a rare time in my life where I can take these risks.
I strongly believe in decentralization and empowering individuals to seize their own financial freedom. I’m a firm believer that the tech we work on now will disrupt and give many a fighting chance in achieving this freedom. I have never been so fulfilled in using my research expertise to provide free educational content to others.
2. What did you do before Web3?
My background is in traditional finance (TradFi) qualifying as a chartered accountant at Ernst & Young (EY) in London.
I came across blockchain tech, and decentralized finance, through the blockchain working group while seconded to EY Australia. I soon realized how early it was with institutional interest ramping up, discovered NFTs in May ’21 and made the leap to full-time web3 in November ’21.
Since leaving EY, I joined Origins Analytics to head up their research team, focusing on data analytics for the NFT market. I write their web3 content on both macro trends & individual projects or protocols. I also provide free educational content and overlay my tradFi knowledge to help others understand web3 via my Twitter.
3. What are you working on at the moment?
I started a web3 Substack newsletter (S4mmy’s Snippets) last month and have been surprised by its growth. It’s currently at 300 subscribers. Irrespective of the numbers I will be issuing this weekly every Tuesday purely out of the enjoyment I receive from researching and writing about the non-fungible segment of crypto.
I intend to continue ramping up my content engine to develop a self-sustained content business, hopefully, supported by future integration of a payment layer on Twitter and diversification of risk across other content creation platforms.
I have a team of 10 analysts Analysts at Origins and we will be scaling up the output of analysis once the software launches next month (currently in beta). So if there are any budding writers specializing in NFTs, hit me up!
4. What is one thing you wish more people would know?
The past 18 months in web3 have been a steep learning curve. The lessons learned:
1) Consistency is key, especially in an economy reliant on ever-shortening attention spans.
2) Compounding small beneficial habits works wonders across long timeframes.
3) Stepping out of your comfort zone is incredibly rewarding in the long run, so take calculated risks.
4) The inflection point is always something I am mindful of. It’s important to adapt and pivot, but maintaining conviction in a route you believe in for long enough to see the benefits come to fruition is important.

5. What is one thing you want to leave people with at the end of this newsletter?
Community, human interaction and a sense of belonging ring true. Find your “raisson d’etre”. Once you do, try everything you can to keep doing what you love.
The future possibilities that web3 has to offer excite me. I have every intention of dedicating my life to researching and sharing the knowledge I accumulate along the way. Anyone that is London based, hit me up - we have several in-person web3 meetups for co-working and socials.
To me, this is the very start of a long and rewarding career in web3.
Let’s grow together.
