Hello my friends,

I've noticed that for many creators, the problem isn't lack of motivation — it's a lack of focus.

Stop jumping from idea to idea. Instead, only spend time on products and services that align your skillset with tangible and profitable outcomes.

Easier said than done, but something to strive for nonetheless.

Until next time,
