Alright, you’re a creative, you’ve read my passive income post and you feel ready to dive into the world of monetizing your artistry. You’re pumped with excitement and eager to get started, but which route do you take with your product offerings, digital or tangible? Having experimented with both, I’ll let you in on some of my main takeaways from each category.
In this very intimate entry I’ll reveal to you how my paper engineering hobby turned into a source of passive income, generating roughly $100,000 in 5 years. If you’re curious to know how my journey in paper engineering started, I suggest you read my “Spark of Curiosity” post first.
This outcome might be impressive, or not, depending on who you are and what your ambitions are. For me personally, this was unimaginable when I started, but curiosity lead me down a road of experimentation and very rewarding results.
How my single spark of curiosity lead to global acclaim, multiple commissions, an online store, and a load of new knowledge.
The craft which lead me towards global exposure, a good sum of passive income, multiple commissions for several big companies, and most importantly a heap of new knowledge, all ignited out of a single spark of curiosity. The start was that simple, but the journey was quite complicated.
Here we go, first blog entry, woohoo, I’m screaming on the inside from excitement. Ok, calm down dude, take a deep breath…
I’ve been avoiding writing for years, thinking it’s not something I’d be good at, I’d rather make videos, I’d rather design things which communicate a message. Who has the time or the interest to read this stuff anyways? But, now here I am, in a completely new stage in life with writing as the only possible creative outlet.
As a designer, a design student, or any type of person who uses computer software, have you ever questioned if your workflow is at its greatest potential? If you haven't and you're perfectly content where you are, stop reading, this isn't for you. Otherwise, if you have the slightest desire to improve, I will give you one simple advice from my years of experience which, if explored and applied, will help pave your road to success in a big way.
