How to build your brand by being you 🐣

I’ve been making multiple 6-figure profits by creating content online for more than three years.

Just like most creators, I didn’t build my audience or business by following a genius master plan.

Hey Reader, most of the emails I send you don't have a clear theme or topic, but today is different. This week, I want to encourage you to allow yourself to show up as your authentic self. When we start to publish our work online, we're usually afraid of being judged. And to minimize the risk of being judged, we pretend to be someone we're not. We put on a mask to be professional, smart, or cool. But you know? The easiest way to stand out and share your message with the world is by being you:...

I’ve been writing on Medium since 2018. I run a newsletter with over 22k subscribers. I’ve only developed 3 offers over the past 4 years. I rinse & repeat the same product launch twice per year. I like sticking to what works & making money in a way that feels easy & hassle-free.
