  • Why we share (9/2/2016) - This past week I was blindsided by the death of someone I followed on YouTube. He was only 40 years old, had no known medical issues. He died suddenly in his sleep.

  • Invest in people and experiences (8/19/2016) - Too often, to push our work forward, we consider investing in tools and resources. Maybe it’s an application, a new piece of equipment, or a learning resource such as an online course. Today, I want to encourage you to instead invest in experiences and other people.

  • Be the gateway (8/5/2016) - When I talk with writers, they often feel confusion at how the vision they have for their book can align to the pressure they feel to have a “platform.” They don’t know what to include on a website, what to send in an email newsletter, what to share on social media, and how to make […]
  • I’m hiring an intern (and you should too) (7/28/2016) - I’m hiring an intern to join me here on the WeGrowMedia team.

  • Making social media fun again (7/15/2016) - Today I want to share the advice I give to every writer and creative professional who is overwhelmed with social media, and either: Doesn’t know how to make it feel effective towards their goals. They want it to feel meaningful again. Has lost enthusiasm for social media. They want it to feel fun again. If […]
  • How to create an effective website (7/8/2016) - Do you love your website? Do you feel it adequately represents the vision you have for your work? Does it draw people in and keep them engaged? Does it “convert” — meaning that it turns a casual viewer into someone who makes a commitment to buy your book, follow your blog, or sign up for […]
