What It's About

An update from a novelist who moonlights as a writing teacher.

Notes from Chris

Episode 1272
Welcome to Throwback Thursday / “Where are they now?” where we take an in-depth look at someone who’s story has evolved considerably since we first featured them.

So far in these features we’ve had a New York City musician with a blog teaching jazz that becomes a multiple six-figure business and an Australian woman who draws houses.

Today, in our latest feature, we’ll hear from Jessica Brody, Ep. 303: Published Author Adds Income Source; Makes Extra $21,000 Her First Year.

What’s happened since? Let’s hear directly from her. She has a lot of updates, it was a struggle for me to condense them because she gave us so many good things to work with.

But suffice it to say that she has massively increased her following and income and influence since Ep. 303. And not only that but she’s making some really smart moves to reduce her dependence on an outside platform.

Listen to today's episode to hear Jessicas's updates...



Inspiration is good; inspiration combined with action is better. Now get back to work!

Yours in the revolution,

Quote of the Day
"I think the key thing to note is that you do not have to be the best at something in order to teach it. You just have to have some sort of skill that other people don't have."
