Knowledge Worker Kit - Announcement

A product update for the Knowledge Worker Kit

Knowledge Worker Kit - Announcement

I have important news to share about the Knowledge Worker Kit that I started working on a while ago.

I consider that project central to the future of my entrepreneurship journey. I want it to become a really valuable space for Knowledge Workers and Lifelong Learners. For that reason, I have decided to include free bonuses to the offering:

In total, that's $289 worth of bonuses that you'll get for free if you buy the Knowledge Worker Kit.

I have also decided to increase the price of the Knowledge Worker Kit to $149.99. At this price, the Knowledge Worker Kit is a real bargain. Over time, the value proposition will keep improving. I will expand the accompanying guide, organize and record various events (meetups, workshops, expert presentations, and more), add courses, etc. All members will have lifetime access to those.

Check out the project page to learn more about what's included in the Knowledge Worker Kit:
