Writing daily won’t make you money, it will make you better at writing but if you don’t write daily, you won’t even improve on your writing.
This year I’ve read so much about the power of writing and how it can improve business.
I’m not entirely sure how it does that yet, but it doesn’t seem like a ridiculous concept. To be honest it seems like quite a sensible one.
I write these posts for selfish reasons really. To get them done. If someone likes the sentences I put together along the way, it’s a bonus.
In the words of Seth Godin, you need to show up. This writing is me showing up. However, I’ve found myself showing up in different ways recently, (which is ok), but it has come at the detriment of my writing – so I will be addressing this. But in the meantime, you can subscribe to my youtube channel if you want:
Other thoughts worth considering:
Create a reputation worth trusting:
As a brand, if you create a reputation worth trusting, you’ve done most of the hard work.
The reality is, the brands worth trusting go the extra mile. The have reason for doing what they do more than just taking the consumers money. They want to do more. They want the people of their brand to do more. Those are the real signs of a trust worthy brand.
Own your errors:
If you make an error or mistake, who actually cares other than the critic? As long as there was productive intention behind the error it should matter because you made a start. That’s the beauty of being able to refine. If the critic has time to criticise they have time to create.

Does the artist perfect their style before they begin to paint? No.
Your work doesn’t need to be perfect, it just needs to be publishable.
