April already?! 🐣

Hey Reader,

Can you believe the first three months of the year are already over?!

I'm spending the Easter break with friends & family but I did my quarterly reflection before heading off, and boy, a lot has happened over those past three months!

  • 🚘 I got my driver's license!
  • 🇨🇾 I visited Cyprus & connected with brilliant entrepreneurs who live there.
  • 🚴 I went to my first spinning classes and loved it.
  • 🧑‍💻 We silently launched our first real website.
  • 🔵 We took our private membership from Facebook to Circle, which has been a major upgrade for the engagement and interaction of our members.
  • 💸 Several of my Medium stories did exceptionally well and earned over $1,000.
  • 🩵 We welcomed dozens of new writers inside Medium Writing Academy and have already celebrated incredible wins with them.

It's been a busy quarter, to say the least, but it's also been incredibly fun to challenge myself in new ways.

I'm always amazed by how far you can come in three months if you're dedicated and focused.

It's weird: When you don't know where you're going, three months pass by and you don't even remember how you spent your time.

But when you have clear goals, you can make incredible progress.

My point is to get you excited about what you can do over the next three months of 2024, Reader.

During my writing/creator career, a lot has changed within 3-month sprints. 🗓️

Take my earnings as an example - here are two screenshots from my first year as a full-time creator and how my earnings have exploded within three months:

Within 3 months, my earnings from Medium's Partner Program went from a few hundred dollars to mid 4-figures.

After launching my signature program Medium Writing Academy in June, it took me 3 months to go from a few hundred dollars to making over $6,000 in a single month. 💸

I'm sharing this to encourage you to take action.

You don't have to wait for the next new year to make a change.

Take action now so you can be in a different place three months from now. 🥰

Hey Reader, If you've been learning about content creation, writing, marketing, or entrepreneurship for a while, you'll know that storytelling matters. Compared to stats, data, and facts, stories stick. Our ancestors used stories to pass on knowledge, and it's no wonder they're still the most effective way to learn, communicate, and fascinate. The problem is that telling memorable stories is hard because most of us overthink, don't know where to start, and have no idea how to tell a story...

Hey Reader, I'm celebrating my 27th birthday today, but unlike most of my creator friends, I won't offer a 27% birthday discount on all my courses to "celebrate with you." 😅 Instead, I want to share something I've been thinking about a lot lately: I spent most of my life trying to fit into certain boxes. 📦 Here's an example: I've been going to the gym since I was 15 years old - more or less. Sometimes, I'm excited for a workout. Most of the time, I just get it done because burning calories...

Hey Reader, I was born in May so it's always been a special month for me but the older I get, the more I learn to celebrate me because I realize that life's too short to be busy, grumpy, envious, or resentful. But this month is also special because we recently kicked off a live cohort of my signature program, Medium Writing Academy, and we have tons of exciting live events scheduled! It's been an absolute pleasure to meet dozens of talented and curious writers in our first calls and receive...
