❱❱ Welcome to the Platinum Experience

❱❱ Welcome to the Platinum Experience



Hi again! I’m JR — but if you’re reading this, we’ve probably already met. First and foremost, I want to take a sec to thank you for even thinking about a Platinum membership. This is independent journalism through and through, and your support is what makes it possible for this to exist without any corporate affiliations or outside influence of any kind. That paves the way for an unusually raw, honest, and real approach that wouldn’t make sense in a more traditional setup.

And this, my friend, is anything but a traditional experience. Platinum members are treated to so much more than what’s publicly available on the internet — including in my own regular articles.

Here’s the full list of practical, one-of-a-kind resources that’ll be at your fingertips the second you join:
