This is the welcome email. The first email everyone receives.
If you ever start your own newsletter, it’s helpful to know, the Welcome Letter is the MOST important issue.
To me they are all important. But we only have one chance to make a good first impression.
My goal is to tell you why this newsletter will help you more than any other.
And, if you have a second when you’re done reading, please reply to this question:
“What is the biggest challenge or question you have about growing a creator business?”
I am super excited to share some creator wisdom with you every Wednesday
My goal is to help anyone who wants to be a creator or anyone who is teaching, or supporting others who want to build a creator business.
I will share as much as I can to make that easier for you.

💎 1 Tip To Launch, Grow, Or Monetize.
Most people don’t need motivation, they need clarity.
We can create content within a combination of three areas.
We could use a medium that is primarily audio, visual, or written.
In other words we can create things like podcasts, digital art, movies, or blog posts.
No matter what we create, we need a vision, a North Star. Or as Bob Goff puts it “we need to keep the moon in the window”.
As we head out on this creator journey together I would like you to meditate and reflect on what that vision is for you?
It will change. That darn moon is always showing up in a different place. That’s O.K.
The key is to always be able to find it.
At this moment, what vision do you have for your creator business?
Find a few other creators you can look up to while crafting your own vision.
💎 1 Mini Essay On Designing Your Creator Life.
In the next issue I will share an essay on everything I have learned from the coaches and courses in the creator economy so far. And it is quite the list!
You see, I’m a big believer that we should make deposits, investments in the economy we want to be a part of.
When I was a personal trainer, we used to train each other.
Life coaches have other life coaches.
It makes sense.
If it’s something we believe in, then we should put our money where our mouth is.
The creator economy is no different.
And it doesn’t need to be a lot. I joined a great workshop last night for $20.00
Could you go about this without taking a whole bunch of courses?
But, time is our most important resource.
And if something saves me time and I can afford it, I’m in!
That time saved gives me energy to create.
So I have no shame about it, I have learned from a bunch, and I mean a bunch of coaches and courses.
My goal now is to teach you everything I know. And everything I learn in the future.
One last thing first, I never stopped creating!
Even though I have taken an incredible amount of courses. I have never stopped creating.
We should spend 90% of our time creating, in the other 10% we should spend it learning.
In the next issue I will share an essay on everything I have learned from the coaches and courses in the creator economy so far.
And it is quite the list!
