Hi Ali!
Thank you for this brilliant podcast episode.
Today was an extra day that we all were gifted since it’s a leap year- and I told myself that the next time this day occurs – 4 years later, my life will look very different from the way it looks right now. This video found me at exactly the right moment, as it’s the push I needed on that thought trajectory. Why shouldn’t I monetise off of something I’m good at and love doing?
Thanks again for the incredible value you put out into the world and you do it in a way that does not feel overwhelming- something even a young teen would understand and follow. I’m 27, and I’ve “wasted” years of my life not believing in myself enough to monetise off of the skills I have and want to build on, and you’re teaching me to do that strategically.
(Obviously, I’ve just come out of a rabbit hole of your content, teehee!)
(PS: I’m putting you on my vision board. Let’s see what comes of that!)
