The Direct Route: Cheaper and Faster

I'm grateful when someone like you supports me directly and cuts out the distributors. So when you buy Experience Curating from me and my preferred vendors, you get the book for less and I keep more to reinvest into future projects you'll enjoy.

The Memory Problem: (Almost) Solved

I have a leaky brain.

And I often wondered, “Wouldn’t it be amazing to stop losing my best experiences, like a friend’s wedding or a fantastic TED Talk video, in a forgetful and corrupted void?”

Through trial and error, I came up with a solution for my poor memory … but also for becoming an expert in any topic, increasing influence, finding focus, and simplifying life. I call it “Experience Curating.”

What's Experience Curating?

Experience Curating is a three-part blueprint that empowers you to recognize, capture, organize, and share your most valuable moments.

The first part creates the mindset that everything can be curated to benefit yourself and others. The second part integrates the six-step FAOCAS framework that makes any experience meaningful. And the last part applies the tools and best practices to build actual curating currency.

Experience Curating in Action

The open secret is that curating your entire existence – also known as Experience Curating – is just as powerful today as it was 2,000 years ago. It's the same system that made Evernote a billion-dollar company. It's the same mindset that the Brothers Grimm used to curate the tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Snow White. And it's the same process that best-selling authors like Keith Ferrazzi or media moguls like Arianna Huffington use right now.

The FAOCAS process – Filter, Archive, Organize, Contextualize, Access, and Share – can be applied to quotes, recipes, books, conversations, and any other experience you can imagine. You can then use your favorite tool – from pen and paper to Evernote to spreadsheets – and build your curating currency. As the book's curator case studies proves, curating currency can be converted into financial, intellectual, social, and other types of currency very easily.

Anyone Can Have the Curating Gift

You don't need anyone's permission to curate for your own benefit and to help everyone else around you. Plus, Experience Curating takes no extra money and surprisingly little time or energy.

What you use your curated experiences for – making money, improving your relationships, truly useful to-do lists, or world domination (for instance) – is up to you.

You can join countless others to push the boundaries of your potential. You can constantly prove that your existence is meaningful. And you can unearth the timeless and specific steps to convert your curating currency into social, intellectual, or physical capital.

All it takes is some simple and intentional Experience Curating.

Praise for Experience Curating

“Joel's a systematizer – someone who sees a problem, and then works to fix it right away. If you want to banish your poor memory forever, get this book and set up your own Experience Curating system.

Amit Amin


“Everyone wants to remember things, but most of us only get as far as writing stuff down on scraps of paper and then losing them. Experience Curating helps us decide what we should curate, why, and then details a wonderful process for doing it.”

Ethan Waldman

The Tiny House

“I don't have to save everything. I only have to keep and organize the stuff that enriches my life, and, if I want, share that richness with others. Joel has shown me how to do it more effectively and consistently.

Shanna Mann

Change Catalyst

“Joel's entertaining, confident, and convincing, but is also humble and open to learning more. He writes like a friend and holds my hand to help simplify concepts that can be complex.”
