    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.

So encouraging

I downloaded this because I was looking for creator advice, but it turns out that it’s been general awesome life advice for me. It makes sense, since of course my creativity should be a huge part of my life, but before this I bought of it as something I did on the side when “real life” wasn’t in the way. How sad. This podcast has helped me shift that way of thinking, and this enjoy life more!
