Creating Slow Growth Academy would have never been possible without a dedicated group of freelancers, creatives & badass human beings...

• Mark D’Avella is our tech and operations wizard 🧙‍♂️ (yes… my big bro!)
• Natalie Pidding created the @slowgrowth Instagram account from scratch and helped with nearly every aspect of building Slow Growth Academy.
• Taiga Fukuyama is our assistant editor that organized over 3,800 clips to prep me for editing.
• Luum Studio designed our epic website.
• Tara Jacoby created the beautiful course illustrations & animations.
• Lina Cordero is our @slowgrowth social design.
• Eric Swartzwelder & Jardeson Rocha came through to help us with additional design & animation work.
• Stefan Kunz created the hand lettering on our Giant Leaps print.
• Thanks for crazy detailed feedback from Jason Zook, Caroline Zook, Michelle D'Avella & Megan D'Avella.
• One Acre Fund Footage was shot by Kellogg school of Management Alumni spotlight series

And thanks to you! I wouldn't have been able to create Slow Growth Academy without you guys all showing up to watch my videos every week. I hope you find that this helps you on your journey.

    🌹🥀🌼🥀🌹 The three monotheistic religions ... a wrong title, this is what was reported to me by one of the brothers who are scholars and specialists in belief, and may God reward him well. //Transported Judaism and Christianity are canons, not religions Wonderful information about our Islamic religion, most of us are ignorant of it, so they got to know it and get to know others about it The Three Heavenly Religions For the first time, I realized that this saying was wrong when I studied the true doctrine There is no such thing as the three monotheistic religions God said {The religion with God is Islam} [19 Al-Imran 19] So what is Judaism and Christianity? First, he wrote them called the Torah and the Bible They are divine laws and books, not religions, and there is only one religion, which is Islam. God said “We all have made of you a law and methodology المائدة [48] The laws differ as each law differs from the other in terms of prohibited and permissible, but the religion is one All the prophets and messengers have one religion, which is Islam As for the claim that Judaism and Christianity are a religion The Jews and the Christians are the ones who called themselves that, and God Almighty did not name them Christians or Jews God said {And from those who said, "I will be Christians.} [14] {And they said, Be Jews or Christians ٰ be guided} [135 Al-Baqarah] They are those who said to themselves But all the prophets And the messengers said, We are Muslims Until Pharaoh said when he caught drowning {He said, “I believed that there is no god but whom the children of Israel believed in, and I am among the Muslims” [90 Yunus] So why didn't he say I am from the Jews? These verses indicate that one religion is Islam and not three religions God’s Prophet Noah, peace be upon him, said {If you took over, then I did not ask you of a reward If I would be rewarded only against God and I commanded that I be of Muslims [72 yen]} And God’s Prophet Ibrahim, peace be upon him, said to his sons {And it was commanded by Abraham, his sons, and Jacob, O sons, for God has chosen for you the religion, and you will not die except while you are a Muslim) [132] The Prophet of God, peace be upon him, said {Make up for a Muslim, and bring me to the righteous} [101 Yusuf] And the Prophet of God Moses, peace be upon him, said {And Moses said, "O people, if you believe in God, then trust in Him if you are Muslims) [84 Yunus] And the Prophet of God Jesus, peace be upon him, said {When Essa felt disbelief from them, he said, from my supporters to God, The disciples said, “We are the followers of God, we believe in God. The comprehensive verse comes to all the prophets, while they acknowledge that they are Muslims {Say We believe in Allah and what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between one of them and we have Muslims} [136 Cow] The Seal of the Prophets and Messengers, our Master Muhammad, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, came carrying the Islamic Sharia, which calls for the religion of Islam as well, but with a method that complements all the laws Everyone who believes in God and every prophet sent is a Muslim He testifies that there is no god but God That is, he submits and submits to God alone, one God who has no partner. Correct your belief; ... If you complete the reading, pray on Muhammad and Muhammad.

    is it just me or i would like to one day see matt do a film of a utopian world where everyone’s a minimalist. and the protagonist is a man, (or woman not gonna be biased) that rebels against these laws and has to hide his secret hoarding addiction of collecting hard drives from the world and his family.

    I find slapping logos on a mug to make a quick buck a fair way to generate revenue - everyone who buys such mugs realizes that it's just a logo slapped on a mug, but they buy it anyway, because they want to support you, and identify with you. I'm pretty sure even if yo wrote in your item description "providing this mug literally took me 10 minutes to set up", it wouldn't really affect sales, because people don't buy the mug because your mug is the best mug out there, but because they want your logo on it, and they want to support you.
