How to create unlimited content✍
Content creation is hard.
Coming up with new ideas to constantly create is even harder.
Sometimes, as a creator I feel like I’m running on the content creation treadmill🏃‍♂️
And it’s never going to stop.
Read this thread from the master of threads Blake Emal.
Blake is the CMO in public of copy.ai and an expert marketer for more than a decade.
He explains his process of coming up with unlimited content.

How to make money💸
As an indie creator, this is an important insight from Arvid Kahl about how to make money.
Making money is about saving someone time, saving someone money, or make someone money.
Arvid puts it elegantly in this Tweet -
Arvid Kahl
People will be willing to pay good money for something that:

- ⌛️ saves them time
- 🏦 saves them money
- 💸 makes them money

Find a problem where a solution does one or more of these things, and you're well on the way to a sustainable business.

If it does all three, jackpot.
A Beautiful Twitter Story🤩
This is such a beautiful story.
Jamie’s a writer from New York, Ash is a designer in Spain.
They met on Twitter during the pandemic, and this week they released a book together.
It’s about Creators.
This is the power of Twitter, this is also why I say that Twitter is the most important platform in the world right now.
I’ve myself met, talked and collaborated with so many people from across the world.
Read Jamie’s thread and get inspired -

Looking Back👀

I wrote a thread reflecting my first month as an Indie Creator.
Lots of lessons, and its been a good month for me.

Find value in it -

Can't believe it's already been a month since I quit my job.

It's gone so fast.

Some lessons I've learned in these 30 days -

- I need to get better at this freelancing thing.

I took on too many projects, got overwhelmed, and had to say no to some projects.
