Justin Welsh @thejustinwelsh · May 22 One last note: While this thread might be easy to read, none of this was actually easy. - It's taken ~4 years & 4,000 pieces of content - There are days when I think it's all going away - I'm an outlier - the creator game is tough Does that mean you shouldn't try? No.
