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:
Join over 1,000 Learn Lettering students in making a living as a hand lettering artist. 50 video lessons take you from understanding the technical aspects of how to do lettering all the way through design contracts, licensing, client communication, and pricing.
You’ll learn how to make more money with lettering – both with what it takes to charge higher rates with clients as well as lettering digitization processes for providing files to manufacturers. Everything you need to sell products with your designs and price your work.
Every Wednesday and Friday, I put out a fresh new episode centered around helping you make a living with your passion. It’s being said, “This podcast sets the standard of what podcasting should be,” and that “every episode has at least 5 inevitable takeaways.”
Others are saying, “Put simply, I dare anyone to listen to one episode and not go on a binge listening spree.”
You’ll get tangible insights on creativity and business, delving into topics like growing your audience, making more money freelancing, marketing and selling products online, overcoming creative block, handling fear of failure, time management, and much more.
I guarantee you’ll come away from every episode inspired.

“It is the insightful discussion with creative friends you wish you had after listening to every seanwes podcast.”
“The seanwes community has been an incredible resource that has sparked a significant change in my life.”
Learn Lettering Free Video Lesson #2
We look at defining whitespace containers and establish kerning principles to be applied to lettering compositions in the following lesson. This is the last of the free lessons before the full Learn Lettering courses are available on Monday, March 24th! I’ll be launching with 10 courses, 50 lessons, and more than 8 hours of highly edited, educational videos on lettering.
How to Respond to the “Can I Pick Your Brain?” Question
Have you ever had someone ask to pick your brain? Sometimes they’ll use those exact words, but other times it looks like this:
“Can I buy you coffee?”
“Are you available for a quick Skype call?”
“Can you help me real fast with just a couple questions?”
It’s flattering and at the same time a very strange feeling. On the one hand, it feels good to be asked for advice, but on the other hand, something seems a bit weird about the exchange. Why does it feel weird?
