Writing online changed my life.
Clear writing is a sign of clear thinking.
It takes years of practice and effort to become good at the craft, to become a good writer.
But once you do, your writing can travel across the world and spread your message 24*7.
That’s the power of online writing.
You write something once, it stays on the internet forever. People discover it months later, or even years later, from far across the world.
They interact with your ideas, wrestle with them, respond to them.
Your writing becomes a substitute for YOU. It reaches places you can never dream of reaching.
Writing gives scale to your thoughts and ideas.
My writing has literally changed my life.
I write for pleasure as well for purpose.
I write to connect with people, as well as to make money.
I write for myself as well as for my clients.
But most of all, I write because it’s one of the most fulfilling crafts in the world.
Writing is the fundamental skill I use to make a living on the internet. Over the last few months, so many people have asked me about how they can improve their writing.
How can they find their unique voice?
And most of all, how can they use their writing to make money on the internet?
I’m combining everything I know about writing into a course. Last week I launched the pre-sale for the course on Twitter:
It started at a humble price of 0$ and gradually the price rose as more interest grew for the course.
(already crossed $200 in presales, thank you if you’ve bought 🙏)
You might like the course if you want to:
Find your unique voice
Monetize your writing 💸
Build a portfolio of writing projects.
If that’s something that interests you, check out the course here 👇
It releases on 17th April 2022
(PS: The price will keep rising as the course gets more buyers.)

I’m a big fan of Ali Abdaal and have recommended his videos in the past as well.

More on Ukraine
We’ve covered a lot of Ukraine over the last 3 weeks, this week we decided to take a break.
But if you’re still interested, this video is good. It’s from 4 years ago.
We’ve found the best way to understand the present conflict is to go back to history.
