April already?! 🐣

Published 2 months ago • 1 min read

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. 🥰

This won't sit well with everyone, but here goes: Most new writers are like Chandler Bing in the early episodes of Friends: hopeless awkward and desperate for love Well, maybe we're not exactly like Chandler, but there are many similarities: When you start to write online, you're a little confused because there's so much to learn and do. There are so many platforms, strategies, and so much advice from numerous experts that you don't know where to start and what to do. And when you try to pay...

Hey Reader, if you're anything like me, you regularly come across content, ideas, and statements that make you go like this: I recently wrapped up a wonderful live cohort of my signature program Medium Writing Academy and one of the questions we discussed several times was how to decide what to include in an article on Medium and what to leave out. When you write articles or blog posts, you don't have infinite space because readers won't spend a lot of time on your content if you don't get to...

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...
