A chance encounter introduced Jay Clouse to BuyOurFuture (BOF). Jay had been reading a Twitter thread from Paul Jarvis where Jason was talking about the project and since Jason’s name had come up before with a mutual friend (David Sherry of Death to Stock) Jay looked deeper into the idea behind BOF and what Jason was offering. An article Jay found from existing BOF member Patrick Griffith talked about why Pat was endorsing BuyOurFuture, not as an affiliate, but because he genuinely saw the value of the investment. “That was pretty powerful and it was compelling enough for me to get on board.” Jay said.
Jay runs Unreal Collective where he helps extraordinary people achieve big goals. Members participate in a 12-week intensive to achieve their next milestone. Jay, whose work has been featured in Forbes, Inc., and TEDx, helps members create an action plan to get them from Point A to Point B and achieve their goals. Jay looked at BOF as an investment in the community, the tools and resources, and the relationship with Jason and Caroline, both in his current projects and for the future when there would be other resources he might need down the road. To Jay, “it seemed well worth investing in and having access to in perpetuity.”

"MATHEMATICALLY THE TOOLS AND RESOURCES BUYOURFUTURE PROVIDES OUTWEIGHS THE COST ITSELF. THE ONLY WAY YOU DON’T CAPTURE YOUR INVESTMENT IS IF YOU DON’T MAKE ANY EFFORT."
Of the community of BOF members, Jay says they have been “friendly, insightful and interested in cultivating a relationship. When I need to talk to somebody or get feedback, it’s so easy to go and get feedback from one or many people quickly. Forming personal relationships in the community and seeing what other people are working on is inspiring too.”
Jay talks about a quote he’d heard from comedian Kyle Cease when talking about what he would tell others interested in Buy Our Future: “The fear you have isn’t the fear of the thing itself, it’s the fear of deciding to do the thing itself. You don’t know the complete upside of what you’ll gain and it can be especially hard to quantify with people and experiences. Mathematically the tools and resources BOF provides outweighs the cost itself. The only way you don’t capture your investment is if you don’t make any effort. I would be open to possibility and understanding that even the interactions you have along the way can completely change your path and trajectory and then this investment pays for itself 10x in a matter of no time.”
