What if you run out of content or things to say?

That’s an existential question every content creator faces today. With the ginormous amount of content out there (videos, audios, texts and what not) prolific content creator are always on the edge of yet another crises — no content. At least nothing significant to say. I get it. I face the blank page almost every other […]

You don’t create to be consumed today but to be found someday

The number of views used to be the only metric that mattered when I started to write every day. I was obsessed albeit for just about 8 days before I began to focus on what matters the most — creating something meaningful for yourself. Not others, but yourself. It’s easy to get distracted by metrics, […]

Ever wonder where ideas come from?

Alright, this may disappoint you — I don’t know where ideas come from. Neither do you. Or the person next to you. Or your boss. Or even that guy everyone calls “creative” does. No, they are not a special snowflake. And if someone believes in a thing called an “original idea” is basically disillusioned. Trust […]

Here’s what I do when I don’t have anything valuable to say or write

I stare at the screen for a pretty darn long time. Stare some more until I start typing out a headline (which is usually the central idea I want to talk about) and expand further. But then, I just might erase something because my heart’s really not into writing about that particular topic. That happened […]

What I learned from showing up to post every day in 2018

Listen, this post is a mere formality. Not as in showing up/write something for the heck of it, but to document what I learned from posting every day last year. It was inevitable. I’ve read numerous accounts across the web of people pushing themselves to blog every day for 3 months, 6 months, 12 months […]

Can my business thrive without social media?

It’s a powerful question. One of my favourites because I still can’t answer it convincingly. Do all business have to be on social media? I’m not sure. Can some businesses thrive without social media? I’d say, hell yeah! Now, I’m not saying you should avoid the internet. That’ll be stupid. Come on! What I’m suggesting […]

Love selling, but love building relationships more

So I shared yesterday’s post with a bunch of friends (just for kicks, not validation of course!). And one of my coach friends shot back stating “I sense a strong aversion to selling or being judged. Is that the case?” Ouch! Of course, not! I love to sell! Not in a crazy way but the […]

Is there nothing new under the sun?

While I’m not sure if that’s the truth, I certainly know we all have a hard time believing that statement. But here’s my honest opinion — your thoughts have been thunk before. Your ideas have been implemented before. Your challenges have been dealt with before. You just need to look for these old ideas and […]

Leveraging your team and strengths to grow your business

If you’re a small business owner or an agency owner you’re mostly playing defence… waiting for the next project, the next client or the next pay cheque to come through. It’s tough. And at times even your business’ survival becomes a question. Of course, the simplest way to resolve this challenge is to keep your […]

The only way to become an established authority…

Everyone wants to be one. And they want it fast. Authority, influence and power might as well be the most desired and valued social recognition in the 21st century. We can blame it on the internet but I would say it was meant to be this way. We can’t help but change with the times. […]
