It’s time for your weekly workout.

Exclusively for Jumpstart alumni.

Keep your studio moving forward

We asked you, “What would make Jumpstart even better?”

“More individual attention…” – Mike at Practice Studios

“More 1-on-1 time with Joel!” – João at Mezzolab

“Homework accountability…” – Eric at Ballast

“More accountability…” – Dario at DVH Studios

“Incorporate more guests into the Q&A…” – Steven at Sons of Summer

“More access to modules…” – Ragnar at Brickland

The consensus:

Jumpstart alumni want to keep moving forward. And they need accountability.

Let’s Confabulate

Running a business is a lonely road, but it doesn’t have to be…

Introducing Confab.

The live Weekly Forum with Joel Pilger and RevThink

Structured as a mastermind, Confab is a safe space helping you and your fellow alumni make rapid – and consistent – progress to strengthen your creative business.

Additional Benefits

Confab Slack Channel

Enjoy quick and easy 24/7 access to your fellow Confabulators and RevThink in the Confab private Slack channel.

Latest Jumpstart Modules

Confabulators receive access to the very latest Jumpstart Modules. As of November 2018, the Modules are all-new, providing members with the complete insights – including videos, notes, and homework – that Joel has developed over the past several years.

Confabulators also enjoy access to soon-to-be-released RevThink concepts, tools, and systems while still in development. 

Your own private, weekly powwow.


Every Wednesday 11 AM – 12:30 PM Eastern Time
PART 1: 30 MIN

Studio Hot Seat

Each week a Confab member takes a turn the Studio Hot Seat where together we help him/her experience a breakthrough to their most pressing challenges.

PART 2: 60 MIN

Open Mic

The bulk of each Weekly Forum is reserved for our no-holds-barred Open Mic.

Like the Jumpstart Live Weekly Q&A, guest experts are common. This is your hour for questions, discussion, celebrations, and rants.

No topic is off-limits. 

The Weekly Forum is conducted using Zoom. Members may join via audio, video, or chat. Can’t attend live? All Weekly Forums are archived so members can view past episodes at their convenience.
