The TCB Vault Is Available For Pre-Order!
Today’s a pretty big day.
Big enough for me to write a blog post about it. Because honestly, out of all the things I’ve launched, I think that this is the most exciting.
And for sure the biggest!
Whenever I launch a product, I work days beforehand to make sure everything is ready to go. And then on the day of, it’s really just minor things that need to get done.
So I end up getting extremely anxious. There isn’t much for me to do at that point. So I start spinning my wheels and working on pointless things. But today, I figured I would actually do something that would benefit The Vault and create a whole blog post introducing it.
This isn’t going to be anything crazy.
I’m not going to make this the sales page for The Vault because I already have that.
I just want to take the time today to sit down and discuss this crazy idea that popped into my head. And hopefully answer any questions that you may have.
Let’s get into this!
REWIND BACK TO 1 MONTH AGO
It was actually on July 8th when I came up with the idea for The TCB Vault.
I was in the back seat of the car with my sister and her boyfriend, on our way to my nephew’s birthday party. I had just flown to DC the day before and this was the start of my 5 days there.
We were listening to the podcast How I Built This when a crazy question popped into my head: ‘How can I create a paid version of my free resource library?’
I didn’t want to just make my current resource library paid. That sounded ridiculous.
But what I wanted to do was to create a more advanced version of the free resource library for people who really wanted to get serious about getting the information they needed. And the more I thought about it, the more I realized just how big the project would be.
So I started to scribble down notes on my phone to capture the idea. I knew if I didn’t act immediately it would be gone forever.
I wanted to create a space where there were video tutorials and downloadable resources available that cover a variety of topics. But with the number of videos and resources I was thinking about, I knew it would be a complete mess.
So I decided to turn to Teachable to create not just another course, but actually 9 different courses that were all held within 1 main course.
But they aren’t really courses! They just say that in the Teachable world.
In reality, these are just sections used to organize the content. So if you are looking for something related to Google Analytics, you know that you can go straight to the Website Wiz section and find what you need.
And the same goes for anything specific to blogging or blog writing. If you have any questions on that front, then you visit the Blog Basics section.
I wanted this organization so that it was extremely easy to use!
I didn’t just want to throw all the information in 1 pot and let you sort through it. The goal is to make your life easier, not harder.
THE START TO THE VAULT
It took less than a day for me to get to work.
The very next morning after having my amazing brainchild, I started to outline all of the resources that I wanted to include in The Vault.
And after 2 hours of brainstorming, writing down the best ideas, and organizing all of the content, I had come up with 167 videos that I wanted to include in The Vault.
Yeah… it was a bit much.
And once I realized how many ideas I had, I knew that I couldn’t just dump all the information I wanted to in The TCB Vault all at once. If I did, I wouldn’t be able to launch it until the end of the year!
Plus it would be extremely overwhelming and I didn’t want to scare people away.
So I came up with the idea to continue to build upon The TCB Vault every month.
That way it really wasn’t like an online course. Instead, it would continue to change and grow as you do. And any time you have a new question, you can find the answer that you are looking for that is relevant and actionable.

GETTING TO WORK
As soon as I got home from my trip to D.C., I was unmotivated to get to work.
I knew just how much content I wanted to create. But I had no idea if you guys would be interested in something like this.
So I did the only thing I know how to do… I turned to IG stories to share my idea and propose a waitlist.
And within a couple hours, I had 3 people interested in The TCB Vault.
That was all I needed to start really getting to work. So I started creating the platform on Teachable and I worked to finalize the content that was going to be included.
It was during this time that I realized something extremely important: The TCB Vault can’t contain any fluff. It has to be 100% actionable.
When I was creating the outline for what was going to be included in each section, I noticed that I was coming up with fluff ideas that were meant to lead you from one video to the next. And it seemed to much like an online course. That’s not what I was going for!
So I had to think back to my free resource library and draw inspiration.
I quickly realized that everything included in The TCB Vault had to be 100% actionable and informative. With every video you watch, you need to be able to take away something.
I didn’t want people leaving a resource and thinking ‘well that makes sense’. I want you to feel motivated to take action!
WHY I’M HOSTING A PRE-ORDER SALE
I’m kinda the worst. Because when I come up with an idea, I think it’s amazing and I continue to move forward guns blazing!
I don’t like to take the time to ask other people what they think. Although I know validating the need for a product is so important, sometimes it just seems like it slows the project down.
So I came up with the idea to pre-sell The TCB Vault.
This way, I can not only generate hype around the new feature of TCB, but I can also figure out if creating all this content is going to be worth it or not. And most importantly to me, I get to offer different bonuses and sales incentives with a longer launch timeline.
And one of those bonuses is actually a physical copy of The Blog Hustler which hasn’t even been released yet!
All in all, I’m happy with my decision to pre-order The TCB Vault. And for those people who do decide to signup during the pre-launch phase, they will actually start to receive some content before the official launch date of September 4th. Shhhhhh!
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM THE TCB VAULT
Over the next few months, I’m going to be rolling out 9 different sections.
4 of them will be available on September 4th. And then 1 or 2 new sections will be added each month following.
In each of those sections are at least 9 different resources. But some of them have over 20 resources.
These include videos, tutorials, and downloadable resources for you to use. And each section includes different things. You may notice that one section has a lot of tutorials but not that many downloads. And that’s because the downloads haven’t been developed yet.
As new resources are created, they will be added to The TCB Vault.
So you may notice that right now the downloads are only the ones that are currently available in the free resource library. That’s because I haven’t added slots for all the new downloads that are going to be available over time.
I gotta keep some things a secret – ya know!
HOW LONG IS THE TCB VAULT GOING TO BE AVAILABLE
When I was buffing out the ideas for the TCB Vault, I thought that it was going to be another evergreen course. Meaning that it would be open for enrollment always.
But the more I thought about it, the sillier that seemed.
Especially since this is my first time launching The Vault, I want to make sure that it’s amazing.
So I’m only going to offer it for a limited time. And then once I gather some feedback from the TCB community members inside The Vault, then I’ll make the needed changes and open it for enrollment again.
Eventually, it might be something that’s available for purchase year round. But right now, it just feels right to only offer it for a limited time.
The TCB Vault will actually only be available for enrollment from August 7th to September 8th.
Sad. I know. That’s why you have to pre-order it now!
THE EARLY BIRD SPECIAL
In case you haven’t already checked out the sales page for The TCB Vault, let me take a quick moment to explain the Early Bird Special.
From today until Friday, August 10th at 11:59 PM EST, you can pre-order The TCB Vault for $295 and you’ll get access to 3 amazing bonuses.
To start, the full price of The TCB Vault is going to be $495. So saving $200 is already a steal. But let’s talk about the bonuses.
1. A physical copy of The Blog Hustler
You already know that I have my ebook, The Blog Hustler. Well when I was creating that ebook, my main vision was to actually create a physical book. But at the time, I had no idea how to do it! So I settled with the ebook because I wanted to get this information out to you guys as soon as possible.
But in the back of my mind, I knew that I was going to make it a real book.
So before it’s even available in physical form, if you sign up for the Early Bird Special, you’ll receive your own copy of The Blog Hustler in the mail!
2. My Big Plans: Productivity Guide & 6-Month Planner
Just a few months ago I launched my own planner and I couldn’t be more excited with how much you guys loved it!
So I figured why not give out free copies to people who are serious about stepping up their blogging game (and honestly their life in general). So anyone who signed up for the Early Bird Special will get their own copy of Big Plans in the mail with The Blog Hustler book!
3. A blog evaluation completed by ME
I can be hard to criticize your own work sometimes. You worked hard to get your blog to the point it’s at now. But you know that some things still have to change if you want to continue to grow.
So that’s why I’m offering FREE blog evaluations for anyone that signs up during the next few days.
This evaluation will be completely tailored to your blog based on your responses from a quick survey I created. And probably the best part is that you’ll have your evaluation in your inbox before The TCB Vault is officially launched on September 4th. So you can get to work even before the content is released!
BONUS: And for those of you who joined my waitlist to be a product tester for The TCB Vault, you’re actually receiving an additional discount on top of the Early Bird Special as a thank you for helping me out! You guys are seriously amazing. And anything I can do to help you is really my goal.
Now you may be thinking that you can’t afford to pay $295 for something that’s not even available yet.
So I created an extra option for you.
The TCB Vault is only going to increase in price over the next few weeks. And actually, at the end of this week, the price will increase to $395! And then a few weeks later the price will go to its full price of $495.
So if you want to save some money, then the Early Bird Special is the way to go! Plus it offers the best bonuses… so I mean… come on!
But if you can’t afford to pay $295 all at once, then I am offering a payment plan for 3 payments of $99.
And the best part is that I’m offering a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. This is something that I’ve never been able to do before. But because of the nature of this product, if you don’t like what you see, you can ask for your money back within a 30-day timeframe from when you purchased the TCB Vault.
The only thing I’ll ask of you is a reasoning for your refund. And without any other questions, I’ll give you your money back.
It’s that easy.
