Make a living with your passion.

I’m Sean McCabe. I want to help you support yourself with work you enjoy doing.

Over the past 10 years, I’ve used my business experience to grow and sell a computer repair business, run a profitable web design firm, and build and launch a phenomenally successful series of courses on hand lettering that grossed six figures within 3 days of launching.

As much as I’ve enjoyed doing client work and selling products featuring my artwork, I’ve found the greatest joy in helping others pursue what they love to do and make a living at it.

I podcast, blog, make videos, and send a weekly newsletter to help you make a living with your passion. Just enter your email below:

When will I make the money back from my investment in Learn Lettering?

“When will I make the money back from my investment in Learn Lettering?”

Tomorrow is the big day. Learn Lettering 2.0 is launching on Monday! Everyone on the team is working around the clock preparing for the launch.

I got this question yesterday:

Is there any way you could let me know when I might be able to make the money back from paying for the class? Do you know an average turn around time? I know it will no doubt be worth every penny but just trying to figure things out!

I love this question. First of all, it highlights that Learn Lettering is an investment. It’s an investment in yourself and your career. I’ve poured a ton of blood, sweat, and tears into making this class worth well over 10x the price and I believe I’ve successfully done just that.

You absolutely are going to get a return on investment, but the question still remains: in how long?

Learn Lettering Celebrates 10,000 Students!

The year was 2013. Things were going very well. I was charging 5-figure rates with clients for my hand lettering and selling physical products with my designs every day.

But we need to roll back the clock a little bit further.

The year was 2010. I was designing websites for 8 to 10 hours a day. During my nights and weekends, I practiced hand lettering for 6 to 8 hours outside my day job. I did this every single day for years.

Yes, I really did spend 6 to 8 hours every day practicing hand lettering in addition to having a day job. No, I didn’t do anything else. I sacrificed everything. I dedicated my life to the craft because I enjoyed it. It wasn’t making me any money, but I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of pursuing it.

I created lettering for two years. Nearly every day I posted, nobody noticed in the first two years. Nobody cared.

Until they did.
