How This One Simple But Powerful Tip Propelled My Creator Journey
I have a friend who’s into fitness.
She went from having zero knowledge about fitness to now preparing for a bodybuilding competition within two years.
Recently, she’s been dabbling with the idea of creating content as she goes through her fitness journey.
And when I asked her what was holding her back, she responded with,
“But where do you even start?”
At first, it was hard to answer this question knowing what I know now about content creation.
If I told her that you should build an audience and then you can monetize it through consulting, coaching, or creating digital products, she’d probably give up before she’s even started.
The truth is, the information we know is quite overwhelming.
So instead of telling her about everything that I know, I told her something that helped me when I first started,
“Start with what you have and with what you know.”
When I started, all I had was a laptop and travel photos. So I looked into travel influencing. It didn’t feel like me, so I pivoted to coaching and writing. And now, my content strategy includes creating newsletters, YouTube videos, and Twitter content.
But this all started from figuring out what I knew then and start sharing it no matter how “little” or “not good enough” that knowledge was.
When you start from where you are, you inevitably learn the skills you need along the way.
As the founder of a creator startup Gumroad said, “you don’t learn, and then you start. You start, and then you learn.”
