This is a special moment for me

Hello friends, let’s talk for a bit.

I feel humble today. When I wake up and think about my life, the gratitude that fills my heart is overwhelming. I say that because it wasn’t that long ago I would pray for the day that writing became my career; for the day I would be published by the exact publishers that I have right now; for the time I got to live life exactly how I wanted.

It truly is a blessing, and I want all of you to feel what I feel every morning.

I speak to writers almost every day. I know all of your challenges. We face the same fears and share the same aspirations.

All of the questions you’re asking yourself, all of the emotions you’re grappling with — I was there. At the end of the day you want to know two things: is it possible to do this writing thing and is all the effort to get there worth it?

The answer to your first question is “absolutely.” For the second question, only you can answer that. But that’s why CRY is here. We want to help carry you through the challenges and obstacles that are preventing you from achieving your goals.

Listen, all of my ambitions to be a writer could’ve easily been derailed when I turned 18 and found out I was about to be a father. I had never held a job longer than two months and there I was, not ready at all to be a parent.

What are the challenges you’re facing right now?

Maybe you’re in a job that doesn’t allow you the creative freedom you desire. Maybe you have a book idea in your head but haven’t worked on your manuscript in months. Maybe you haven’t even gotten started yet. Whatever your current lifestyle, it’s not writing. It’s not where you want to be.

Guess what? I have the exact resource you need, right now, to overcome all of those obstacles.

In a few days, I’m going to be announcing CRY Academy’s first-ever writing course. A course we designed to empower emerging writers to make a living by doing what they love to do.

This course is the magic you need to break free from emotional roadblocks and start making a living from your passion.

It’s the resource you need to:

  • Overcome your fear of feeling like you’re not good enough (confidence)
  • Build a readership to support your career as a writer
  • And earn an income from the words you create

The CRY Academy team and I look forward to sharing more details with you later this week!

In the meantime, I want you to do something:

I want you to share your dreams with me. When you close your eyes and think about your life as a writer, what does that look like? Think big here and leave your humility at the door. I want you to share your most ambitious dreams and goals.

Hit reply right now and let me know so we can do this thing together.
