Can, would, and should writing transform your life? (Even if you don't care about being a writer)
And the not-so-obvious-but-really-obvious secret to do it
Hello there, Jordan here 👋
So, you want to be a writer, eh young one?
You’re not sur–
What do you mean “I’m not sure?”?!
Okay, okay. I get it.
We need to have THE talk…
You’re all too smart for me to sweet-talk you into this. I’ll use LOGIC instead.
*rolls up sleeves*
People send more than 1,500,000,000,000 messages every day.
That’s 1½ trillion messages.
(I know you were just counting zeroes)
Just your average slack user sends 200.
Social media creates 1000s of new millionaires every month.
From just writing.
(some of it is technically “scripting” but you get the gist)
Writing is kind of a big deal.
Writing is how we communicate.
To make money.
To be understood.
To change the world.
*puts sunglasses and walks away from the explosion*
What do you do with all this?
You get excited about writing, that’s what.
Excited enough to get you writing a little every day.
Very soon, you will be excited to write for a completely different reason…
Writing is fun.
Writing is a creative outlet.
You can have your own unique voice. Be your own person.
When was the last time you were truly unique?
Writing is great.
I’ll share the biggest secret to writing well, enjoying it, and even making a TON of money from it.
Are you ready?
It’s not that big of a secret, really…
But it does work…
Write. A lot.
Okay, okay, I know. It’s boring.
It’s not the MASSIVE GIGA LIFEHACK TO EARN $1M FROM WRITING IN 3 SECONDS™️ that everyone wants.
I spent 6 years trying to find the MASSIVE GIGA LIFEHACK TO EARN $1M FROM WRITING IN 3 SECONDS™️.
I could not.
In the past 1 year, I became 10X the writer I was by…
You guessed it:
So, dust off your LinkedIn or Twitter profile and start typing.

💡 Idea of the Week
“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
⚙️ Tools, Apps, 'n' Gadgets
Here are today's picks:
Eesel — Eesel is a feed of everything that happens in your business (really; it integrates with most things and organizes them). In your browser.
Figma — every designer reading this is saying “duh” when they see Figma, but you must know about it. It replaced Photoshop for my go-to web design tool. It’s powerful, has a rich community, and it costs $0 for amateurs (they test you 👀).
ThriveCart — ThriveCart can level up your sales way more than a lame Gumroad page. It has a lifetime option (that has been on an “ending soon” promotion for about… 7 years 😂) and it’s price to value is out of this world.
👋 Enjoying this so far?
