Creator Kinfolk Welcome to 300 new readers! Creator Kinfolk now has 933 readers. I've had a crazy busy couple of weeks. I took a week off work (which is why there was no newsletter last week) to celebrate with a close childhood friend as she got married.

Creator Kinfolk Welcome to 297 new readers this week! Creator Kinfolk now has 545 readers. Good writing is important to build your personal brand. Well, not GOOD writing – Good writing. But first, What's the reason we all probably have a "personal brand" within us, but can only point to a select few people who've really made it work for them? Consistency. Too many ideas. Not enough time. Writing is hard. Cringe. Poor results. Basically, it takes time and grit and determination and all these...

Creator Kinfolk 27 Jul 2023 Have you been Ariel'd? The symptoms are: giving your voice over to a sea witch (aka LinkedIn/Twitter Thread speak), not being able to show anyone your voice (and almost losing the love of your life and turning to sea foam – yikes).

Hey there, When creating for your personal brand, it's easy to get into a cycle of not knowing what to talk about (or how to frame what you say). Understanding your audience can help you get over that, and nothing has helped me get clarity on audiences better than the Jobs-to-be-Done framework that I learned about at Buffer. So in this edition of Creator Kinfolk, we'll be diving into this innovation framework through the lens of content creation for folks with simpler goals like us. The...

Btw if that isn't cool with you, no worries! Just use this link to unsubscribe.) So, let's talk changes. Our chats are...
