We’re joiners here at TechPixies. Whether it’s Olympic archery or Orange Club biscuits (because, yes, we do like a lot of chocolate on our biscuits, thanks), we rally to the call to ‘Join our Club’. And we’re not alone. It’s human nature to want to belong, to feel part of something – it’s the intrinsic motivation behind the success of Facebook, Clubhouse, and pretty much any other club you’ll have joined in your life.

But how do you turn a love of belonging into a booming business? Let us introduce you to Joseph Sellers, the son of woodworking wizard Paul Sellers 🧙‍♂️. The pair pump out content to a community of peeps who love nothing more than discovering ‘how to make marking gauges’, so much so, they’ve amassed followers willing to pay good money to be shown how to craft furniture from scratch.

Yep, Joseph Sellers has channelled his dad’s passion for planing into an online membership site that has seen 50,000 people sign up to access the company’s free content and 3,700 people hand over their readies to become premium members. Oh, and there’s just the small matter of the 500K subscribers on YouTube!!!! 😲
