Trends come and go, and are out of your control. Momentum is something you can create by focusing on what you want.

Additionally:

#3: Sinem Günel, founder of Personal Growth Base:

We chatted with with Sinem, founder of Personal Growth Base ($10K/month). In our interview, Sinem says:

Sometimes, people admire me when I tell them I’m 22 years old but some others just doubt my skills and the quality of my work due to my age. I believe in both cases the best is to prove people with the quality of your work and let results speak instead

Additionally:

Find a mentor (or two) who are already where you want to be in a few years. There’s nothing more powerful than learning from someone who already walked the path.

We chatted with with Anthony, founder of Service Based Businesses ($6K/month). In our interview, Anthony says:

Content is really powerful, but it does require patience.

Additionally:

I try to only speak about the things I know and go into depth on those topics. I don’t want to just be some guru speaking about things I really have no idea about just to try and make some money.

Further:

It's often a multi-touchpoint process that makes someone convert. They might find me on Twitter, read an article, then listen to a podcast, and the newsletter ends up converting them.
