I always wanted to meet freelance writer and bestselling author Ayo!

Thanks to this newsletter and amazing community, I had the pleasure of interviewing top Medium writer and legend Ayodeji (Ayo) Awosika (118k+ followers).

We talked about the journey from being an amateur writer to becoming a professional.

Because for Ayo one thing is clear:

“A writer is an amateur who never quit!”

This transition comes with lots of challenges, like talking into the void and still keep going, handling job and side hustle, prioritizing writing, becoming a better writer, and figuring out how to make money from it.

Here are 5 highlights from this week’s YouTube interview:

#1 Medium is undergoing a lot of changes

Ayo and I discussed the recent changes on Medium.

These changes have impacted how much writers can earn.
