Tell us about yourself!
I'm an entrepreneur that's passionate about creating new, innovative, and efficient ways to tackle everyday challenges, and my greatest joy is empowering talented and goal-oriented teams to deliver extraordinary results in a short amount of time. By day I'm running a Fintech startup helping businesses secure affordable financing, and by night I'm growing an inclusive community of co-creators and collaborators that want to effect positive change in the world.
How did you first hear about Notion?
In November 2019, I was just about fed up with the inflexible, clunky, and expensive productivity tools that we were using in our organization, and was looking for something 10x better. When I tested out Notion and realized that we could create our own properties, and on top of that, add formulas and have different views to see our databases, I was in love.
What's your favourite Notion hack?
Wow, there's definitely a lot to mention here, since I do pretty ridiculous things with my notion setup that has saved me a lot of money if I were to use alternative services. If I had to rank my top 3, I'd say being able to use notion as a CMS for my blog/newsletter, publishing notion pages publicly with my own custom domain, chatbots, and forms, and of course, powering up my motivation by gamifying my life.
Can you share with us a template that you love?
If you're looking to achieve your goals and find more meaning in your life, I'd definitely recommend the Be Intentional Series, which is designed to ensure you know what you are trying to achieve at all times, celebrate your wins, and learn from your failures. I'm especially proud of this one because it's helped hundreds of our community members clear up the brain fog and make actionable progress towards their aspirations.
How can people reach you?
I'm most active in the Co-x3 Community, where I answer questions and have meaningful discussions about productivity, growth, and learning. You can also find me on twitter (@cryptolin) and Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/c/ConradLin). If you're looking to explore how we can level up together, find more ways that I can be helpful at powerup.conradlin.com.
