But if you talk to 6 and 7-figure creators you’ll quickly learn it’s freelancing, consulting, newsletters, courses, books, templates, membership communities, and coaching that make them the real money.
The discipline isn’t in how well you write. It’s in making sure nobody robs you of your precious writing time, hell or high water.
Always write in multiple places. There is no judicial system for content platforms. Their ruling is final. Diversify the way a smart investor would.
All you have to do is show up for long enough to claim the prize.
Always write on more than one platform
Regular writing clarifies your thinking. With clear thinking comes crystal clear speaking (by default).
What you write about then forms business ideas. Those ideas turn into money. Money helps you buy your time back. Ideas attract cool people too.
Writing makes you an ideas machine.
Writing makes every area of life better
If you can do it for five years straight your success will be inevitable
When you speak clearly you stand out because most people mince their words. They can’t get to the point. They Um and Ah their way into dark corners they can’t escape.
Writing online is a virtuous cycle that compounds every day.
Writing online is just a glorified phone directory. It’s an ad in the old school Yellow Pages. It tells people who you are and what you know. So when they need someone, your writing makes you top of mind. Few understand.
Looking at money doesn’t make you money. What makes you money is writing.
So your friend list grows and you have more interesting people to bounce ideas off. These people have high energy too. So your energy goes up by being surrounded by them.
The creators that make the most money do it quietly. They sell products and services, thanks to the problems they learn about and solve through writing.
A writing habit is what you actually need
To communicate properly gives you an unfair advantage.
The real money is made behind closed doors
