Up to this point in your creative business, you may have served customers through physical products or services only. But you’re probably at the point where you need some time back in your life. Creating digital products—that help your audience to solve some sort of problem and that’s also related to your niche—is a great way to eventually get that time back.  (Note: I did say eventually because it can take some time to gain traction with digital products.

It might take a while to save all your hard-earned and shiny pennies to hire a professional photographer for your brand shoot. But it's possible that right now you're asking if it’s worth the money.

11 Ways to Brainstorm Content Your Audience Wants

Coming up with new blog post ideas can be tough, especially if you don’t have a content bank to refer back to when your idea well is running dry.

Taking photos can be difficult if you’re not sure ...

Become a Teacher On Skillshare

When I initially received an email from Skillshare back in 2017 saying that I would make a good teacher, I was excited and eager to start teaching. But I was also nervous and figured that I wouldn’t be able to bring in much money. So I put off becoming a teacher for an entire year. But last year, I finally decided to take the leap and create a few classes for the platform. I’m so glad that I did. Since ...

But you might find yourself in a place where all you’re currently doing is filling the demand for some small prints or original paintings with no downtime to create something new. And you may have heard ...
