How do you know you're good enough to ask money for your skills?

Fighting impostor syndrome, learning what you're good at and just putting this buy button on your website.

In March we’ve discussed the best ways to run a paid community. Today we’re digging deeper into the impostor syndrome and other self-confidence or money-related problems that creators may have.

We’re starting the show joking about how Anna and Lera changed their minds about the money since the previous episode by just hanging out in our Discord community 🥰

Offer from the partners

Thanks for supporting us!

Shall we launch a podcast about creators and the passion economy?

Like and share, subscribe, hit the bell - sure, this approach is still valid. But working for dopamine is so…2018?

In 2021 it is not about having a bigger audience and selling them a shampoo, it is about having a niche community who are happy to pay you monthly so you keep creating what you and they are passionate about.

  • What is it in yourself that you can pack as a product?

  • Sell your knowledge as a nice e-book?

  • Record a set of video lessons and sell them as a digital download?

  • Start a paid mastermind group in your community?

We can talk more about these topics, probably launch a spin-off show, bring YouTubers, popular creators and share their stories.

Please tell us if we should. And if your company would like to be a launch partner.

A little bonus

Here’s a 30 days free trial to our premium tier. Support your favourite creators 🥰
