(Me vs. the blank page)
If you’re looking for help sharing your words and connecting authentically to an audience, I can help.
Since May of 2015, my daily publication, Higher Thoughts, has gathered a growing audience of 50k+ people (many of whom I actually like).
Has it been easy?
Has it been the most fulfilling kind of work I’ve ever done?
Can I show you how to do it?
I’ll be real here… I can’t do it for you. I can’t guarantee that you’ll have the kind of success I’ve had with it (but who knows, you may even go far beyond what I’ve done – hopefully so!).
What I do know is that Medium is the most powerful tool out there today when it comes to gathering your tribe around the written word.
I really believe that every passionate brand, business, artist, and solopreneur should build a Medium presence. You can showcase your enthusiasm and highlight your skills in a beautiful way in front of a huge audience of people who care. If you do this right, they’ll find you. This is the power of Medium.
But it helps a ton to know how to use it and navigate its waters.
As for my personal experience with Medium and my professional background in branding/marketing, I have a few fundamentals under my hat that can at least put you a few steps ahead of those who may not be privy.
But that’s just the technical aspect of this thing…
What really holds most people back from a genuine, successful blog is fear.
Many people are scared on several levels… Scared to speak their truth. Scared of ridicule. Scared to write a headline that doesn’t sound like every other click-bait headline out there today. Scared to write powerfully and vulnerably.
I help you dance with that fear. I call you to your highest self and hold you to it.
Not only that, there’s several creativity-boosting exercises and principles I’ve employed over the years to keep my idea muscle strong and my words flowing.
I consciously call myself a mentor (albeit a compensated one), not a coach. I’ve been there. I’m not just selling the thing, I’ve done the thing.
As I mentioned in my About page, I’m a ‘Top Writer’ on Medium.com in several categories including creativity, writing, self-improvement, life lessons, and inspiration to name a few (check out the spiffy badge they gave me…)
I’m currently working on developing a course, but I have no idea when it will be ready.
However, if you’re itching to get going pronto, I’d be willing to consult with you 1-on-1 for a nominal fee. I’m not cheap, but I have a trusted track record and I know that what I’ve learned will be valuable for you if you’re up for the task. As for price, we’ll set a price depending on the level of work we’ll be doing together. To give you a ballpark, I charge $250/hour for one-off consulting sessions. But if we work together for the longer-term, this price will reduce quite a bit.
I’ll only be taking on a handful of students, but if you fill out the form below, we can set up a free 20-minute consultation should there be room. I’d love to hear your story and see if I can help. If so, we’ll set up a program that works for you and hit the ground running.
I look forward to getting to know you/your mission and helping you build an authentic following on Medium.
