    Before You Build Your First Product, Do This

    We're at the end of the 5-day Paid to Create challenge and so far, we’ve identified why we create, the importance of making money off our art, how to know what to sell, and to whom. Now, it’s time to sell.

    Sell Them What They Want, Give Them What They Need

    Before you figure out what you want to sell, you need to first figure out what people are willing to pay for. Your job is to create something unique, something that at first meets a felt need of a person but then, in some way, goes beyond what they thought they wanted.

    Get Paid to Create

    Why do we create? To share a thought: an idea, a story, a paradigm. To help another person, perhaps, simply by saying something others are unwilling to say.
    This week, I'm hosting a free, 5-day challenge to get you to take action. My goal for you is to go from zero to one. To get unstuck in a significant way that will allow you to create momentum in your work so that you can finally get paid to create. To find out more, check out goinswriter.com/paidtocreate.

Binged on Jeff Goins

This is not the only podcast by Jeff Goins; definitely check out the others. I've now binged on his podcasts twice. Forget Netflix binges, binge listen to Jeff if you care about creative work, meaning, writing, or all of the above.

You lost me when you began proselytising.

If you are going to proselytise through your podcast be honest and advertise yourself accordingly, or leave you beliefs out of it.

Sneaky proselytising is not on.

A Valuable Perspective.

No single podcast can cover every aspect of the writer's journey, but Jeff Goins goes very close.

Well produced, this podcast covers a broad range of topics with valuable, actionable 'take aways'.

Highly recommended.
