How to get *rich* without getting lost

Hey Reader, Welcome to another edition of the Write • Build • Scale newsletter, where I help you grow your audience and income without constantly churning out new content or anxiously hopping on every new trend and platform. I recently signed up for a dozen newsletters because I'm looking for cool creators to collaborate with this year, and I was reminded of something: The internet is freaking l-o-u-d. Everybody's screaming for attention, trying to gain views, subscribers, and clients. And I...

Hey Reader, Last week, I wrote about how I'm using some of MrBeast's most effective strategies to grow my business. Today, I'm thrilled to share that thousands of readers have loved the piece and that it has already generated over $1,000 through Medium's Partner Program: If you're not familiar with Medium, the Partner Program, and how to easily monetize your writing, take a look at this brilliant video by my friend Zulie Rane. In a nutshell, you make money on Medium if readers discover and...

Hey Reader, I've been happy for a bunch of different reasons this past week, and I'm thrilled to share them with you today (no bragging and lots of value - promised!) First of all, I made my inner child very happy by throwing a Super Bowl/Taylor Swift party on Sunday. (thank you for all the epic snack & drink recommendations you shared by replying to last week's email - it's been a delicious party!) I forced my non-Swiftie friends to watch 1/3 of the Eras Tour movie and don't feel a tiny bit...

Hey Reader, A few months ago, I wrote an in-depth article about how I'm running two of Convertkit's most-recommended newsletters. Convertkit is the email marketing tool I've been using and loving since 2020. I wrote about my experience with the new Recommendation feature, published the article on Medium, and asked the Convertkit team if they'd like to share it with their community. I knew the a​rticle was valuable and unique because I couldn't find the same information anywhere else and...

Hey Reader, Is it just me, or do you also feel like January just flew by? 😅 Usually, this is the time when most people feel like they already lost.​​They had set ambitious goals just a few weeks ago but already fell behind on their good intentions and New Year's Resolutions. But no matter if your January was great, miserable, or average, I want to share some ideas that might help you for the upcoming months of the year...​Here's a common mistake most people make regarding their yearly goals:...

Hey Reader, If you've been reading my work for a while, you might know that I'm all about helping you build a simple and profitable writing business that allows you to live life to the fullest. That's a vague description because a good life means something different for each of us. For some, it's the ability to monetize their craft and finally share their work with the world. For others, it's taking their family on a vacation, not worrying about bills, or just having more flexibility and...

Hey Reader, If I had to predict how priorities and best practices for writers/creators are changing in 2024, I'd say stability and predictability are becoming more important. Growing competition makes it hard to build an audience if all you do is to occasionally publish average content. Building credibility, trust, and an audience in 2024 requires you to have a clear (and compelling) selling point for your content. Yes, this applies to all creators and writers. No, it doesn't mean you have to...

Hey Reader, is it too late to say Happy New Year? 🥂 After catching a cold right before Christmas, I needed some extra time to review 2023 and set my yearly intentions, so here goes the first edition of the Write • Build • Scale newsletter - slightly later than planned. 👋 I have exciting things to share today, but I want to start on a personal note: One of the many exercises I do to prepare for a new year is to pick a yearly word/theme. After countless hours of reflection and goal-setting, I...

Hey Reader, it's been over two weeks since I sent a regular email, which is a no-go for most content creation and online business gurus. And it makes sense because consistency does matter. But you know what matters too but is rarely mentioned? Listening to your body and mind. As a creator/writer/expert/coach, you can't deliver your best work when you feel exhausted. That's why I haven't written a newsletter in over 15 days. I spent the last month supporting our students inside the Medium...
