Step 3: So now that you’re prepped on what and where, what about who you can share The GIST with? 

Here are some ideas: 

  • People at the office: “I work in a very corporate work environment and meetings always start with talking about last night’s game. I shared The GIST with a ton of both female and male colleagues and got the entire office signed up!” - A GISTfluencer
  • Your workout buddy or trainer: “I always chat with people at the beginning of my spin class. I brought up The GIST and now they are all subscribed... they were so happy to find out it existed!” - A GISTfluencer
  • The people you carpool with 
  • Your fave coffee barista
  • Your classmate
  • Your manicurist
  • The person who just cut/coloured your hair
  • Your, trainer, doctor, or physio
  • Your babysitter
  • Your family
  • Your parents BFFs
  • Your camp friends: “I’m in a whatsapp group with my old camp friends and an email list for recipe sharing with my girlfriends. Instead of doing one mass note I sent a handful of smaller personalized notes to these groups.” - A GISTfluencer
  • Your Lean In group
  • Your neighbour
  • As you can see, the list goes on.

Step 4: Becoming a GISTfluencer (aka having at least three friends referred to The GIST) is a big deal. You should be proud of it. So proud, in fact, that you should add your GISTfluencer status and unique referral link on your socials.
