      I feel like this is easy to say as someone who has “made it”. I’m sure there are plenty of people at the opposite end... he just doesn’t seem to be friend with them...

      Lucky are those who recognize their gifts and put it to good (and profitable) use.

      How to make yourself stand out from the crowd? By writing!

      Writing is how you get attention. And in todays world attention is the most valuable resource.

      We already know this, but this is how you can become more reputable... by reaching a wider audience... by holding their attention.

      When you start writing you don’t have to worry about crafting perfect prose. Instead you just need to focus on teaching useful skills.

      So important to recognize. I often struggle staying on-top of my writing because I worry that it may not sound reputable. Instead I worry about having the perfect grammar... instead of actually just putting myself out there as a writer.

      Time to change this! And time to publish my writing!
