Make Yourself...A Six Figure Writer


This week, we welcome Brianna Wiest—an accomplished writer who proves the notion of a starving artist is just a myth, and that persistence and consistency can turn a creative endeavor into a financially lucrative business. She shares a variety of ways to have your work viewed by the right people to have your stories shared in various publications. Brianna also chats with us about the victim mindset and what one needs to do to overcome the obstacle of feeling like the world is against you.

You need to have a plan, because riding on your impulse of emotion is really dangerous advice. This is not to be confused with the idea that you shouldn’t pursue something that truly makes you feel content everyday, because you absolutely should. You just shouldn’t ruin your life in the process.
