Let's Kick This Off With Some Real Talk ::
I’M NOT HERE TO PITCH YOU SOME BULLSHIT-GENERIC DREAM, THEN TRY TO CONVINCE YOU THAT WHAT I'M SELLING HAS ALL OF THE ANSWERS... BECAUSE IT DOESN’T.
THERE ISN'T A SINGLE PRODUCT ON THE PLANET THAT WILL SOLVE ALL OF YOUR PROBLEMS… (BUT YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT).
But here’s what I can tell you ::
You can get to where you want to go, if you commit to
doing the work on your own terms.
That part about doing things on your own terms — that's the money... And it seems as though we've kinda forgotten that lately. Everywhere you look there's webinars about how to make 6 figures yesterday, or posts about how to triple your mailing-list size in 5 minutes, or courses about how to be successful (on someone elses terms).
Sure, this stuff has value, but where's the soul at, fam?
I think it's time to stop working so hard to be something we're not.
And this... This is exactly why The Unmistakable Effect exists.
The Unmistakable Effect
is for you if...
YOU’RE SICK OF DOING THINGS THE WAY THEY’VE ALWAYS BEEN DONE,
YOU’RE READY TO COMMIT LIKE A MOTHERFUCKER TO WINNING AT YOUR OWN GAME,
AND YOU’RE PREPARED TO DO THE WORK TO GET TO WHERE YOU WANT TO BE.
Here's the rules of play
The Unmistakable Effect was founded by moi (Sian Richardson) in September 2016.
Ya know how people say you gotta create the stuff you wish existed? Well, The Unmistakable Effect is one of those things
I started it not really knowing where it would lead, and to be honest I'm still not really sure... All I know is that it still gets me stoked AF and I keep getting little signs to keep moving forward with it, so that's what I'm doin'.
So The Unmistakable Effect is what I'm bringing to the table. I hope ya dig it. (And hell, if ya don't that's cool too, cause let's be honest, I'm not in the business of people pleasing).
One of The Unmistakable Effect fam said it perfectly when she told me this...
Vision, from Me to You
I have an overall vision of the unmistakable effect in my mind that started basically from the minute i decided i was going to create it...
I see the Unmistakable Effect being a place for true creativity and collaboration... I see it being something that supports artists and creators well, financially + otherwise. I see it being an escape from the everyday... Something you can dive into that shakes up your mind and challenges you to think differently. I also want it to mess with the digital media space a little... But honestly I don't really give AF what the rest of the industry is doing, because The Unmistakable Effect needs to stand on it's own feet and have it's own mission.
So... Who else is in on it?
Right now it's just me (Sian) running this show, but also not really...
Cause let's be honest, epic shit very rarely happens solo.
Here's who else helps me pull this thing together...
In each issue you'll find a column called Words to the Motherfuckin' Wise, featuring Steph Jagger.
You can throw her your big questions, your deepest darkest fears, and the nitty gritty details of your unmistakeable dreams, and she'll answer them in her column.
The magazine would be literally nothing without all of the contributors and people featured...
You can find the whole fam right over here on the Past Featured Friends + Contribs page.
If you take a look around the website or any of the Issues you'll also see that I don't fuck around with the design feels...
And I can credit a HUGE amount of that to the photographers and creative masters out there designing fonts + typefaces and icons and everything else it takes to bring together a project like this. Here's some of my go-to's ::
Stocksy | For super high quality stock photos + videos
Death to Stock | Free monthly stock photos in ya Inbox? Yas pls
Unsplash | More free stock photo goodness? Fuck ya
MyFonts | Take a stab in the dark what these guys sell...
The inspiration behind the mag has a LOT to do with my friends and the places I've travelled...
And the music I listen to and the people + businesses that get me stoked on the reg and basically fucking everything... So yeah, there's that too.
ps. Check some of my fave tunes in the offish Unmistakable Effect Spotify playlist over here.
