Feeling the burnout of content creation? You don’t want to content-create yourself into the grave! What’s the value of generating constant content when it feels like you’re fighting against the algorithm? One thing is certain: Growth never comes easy.

It’s not always about perfection, it’s about creating content that resonates. How do we know what resonates? By making little bets and embracing the possibility of failure. Why? Because it’s all data in the end.

Being a multi-passionate entrepreneur means looking for content that sticks while building trust. Sometimes that means feeling burned out when it seems like we’re constantly pushing content into the ether, to people we don’t matter to. Here’s the thing: If the content you create is authentic, accessible, and resonates with even a small group of people, you’re already leading by example. We can produce content that is authentic when we explore areas we are genuinely interested in improving. But hold up! It’s not about perfection! Your tools don’t matter as much as your ability to empower your audience by developing rapport and letting your integrity shine through your work.

“Your art contributed to my well being in a way that made me feel empowered.”
