Let me guess. You want to produce more content, more consistently, so you can grow your audience and revenue.
It can get frustrating, though. You get sporadic bursts of inspiration, but these come and go. You’re scared you may have “lost it”, for good. Perhaps your best pieces are behind you, after all.
What if, instead of the constant fear that the tap may be running dry, you had a never-ending stream of ideas flowing into your brain?
You’d be unstoppable. You’d become a content creation machine.
How do you stay productive as a content creator and keep coming up…
Creativity is the lifeblood of today’s successful content creators.
Yet, it’s a finicky creature who always seems to escape our grasp just when we need it most. How can you cope with the constant uncertainty, the crippling self-doubts and the odds stacked against you on the creative path?

I’ve always found great inspiration from quotes and principles I could extract from those who paved the way before me.
Reflecting on the insights from the masters who went where you’re trying to go can be incredibly uplifting.
Calling yourself a “creative”, or a “writer” can be daunting at times. Personally, I still struggle with allowing myself to claim that title.
But then I learn from people who became masters of their craft, and realized that most had the same self-doubts I had. The same fears and self-limiting beliefs we all have.
The difference is, they didn’t let those feelings…

Financial education is a huge, gaping hole in our traditional education systems. Most young graduates leave formal education with no idea about how to manage their finances.
Yet, as a result of that very education, they will now be paying off the debt that financed their shiny degrees for the next 5, 10, or more years. And the fees are only rising, leading to higher and higher debt levels.
This lack of financial understanding isn’t limited to…
Elon Musk is no stranger to innovation.
The companies Musk launched continue to disrupt entire industries to this day: from online payments to solar energy, space exploration, AI and even underground transportation.
How does one individual immerse themselves into such disparate industries; become experts at them; and eventually dominate those markets without any prior experience?
First principles thinking is what it boils down to.
The Greek philosopher Aristotle had already defined a first principle as “the first basis from which a thing is known”.
All first principles thinking means, is the process of breaking down seemingly complex issues into their…
Sir Allen Lanes, a young publisher from the UK, built what is now a global publishing empire with a distinctive brand recognized everywhere.
Already within 10 months of launching what became Penguin Books, 1 million copies had been printed, and the unmistakable logo and colorful designs of the books led to major commercial success.

Technology is changing the fate of humanity.
From clunky computer programs to dumbfounded chess and go masters, machine learning and AI have evolved; and so have their capacity to absorb and make sense of large amounts of data about you and I.
The question is: how that data is and will be used going forward; and who controls it?
Currently, this sits in big tech corporates’ data centers.
The ‘GAFAs’ (Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple) of this world have ownership over our data. …
Like it or not, money matters.
If you live on this Earth (and my guess is, you do ), there’s no escaping this simple universal fact.
Money rules. Money is what makes the world go round.
If you have mixed feelings towards the concept of money (earning it; making it; growing it), you’re literally putting a cap on the quality of your own life.
Each one of us has deep-seated beliefs. The thing with those is, we haven’t necessarily chosen them.
Some of our most deep-seated beliefs stem from our childhood and things we’ve experienced when our minds were easily…
Ray Dalio is no stranger to success. Now a billionaire running the world’s largest hedge fund, he is widely recognized as a global business leader and a brilliant entrepreneur.
Dalio built Bridgewater Associates from the ground up, in 1985, and has been continuously evolving and improving the machine he’s designed since.
This involved building a unique culture, introducing an “idea meritocracy” and revolutionary principles that no other company on the planet operates under.
But you don’t need to be Dalio to achieve some of these things for your own business.
