“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.”
Every Wednesday and Friday, I put out a fresh new podcast 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.
Do you feel guilty when you’re not creating? I know I do. I have a hard time not making things.
I had a weekend recently and it was the first true weekend I had in months. I didn’t have anything planned. It was incredible. I caught up on my reading list, I watched some videos, conference talks, a documentary even(!), and learned a ton. It was very relaxing.
But it also felt very weird. I usually don’t go that long with making something. I still felt that itch—that drive to create.
I see the chronic creator situation as a plus. Sure, it can be considered a curse, but look at the alternative: chronic consumer. Most people consume. Few people produce (which is why you’re not a small fish in a big pond).
After two years of podcasting twice a week, we are excited to share our 200th episode with you.
Special guests Aaron Dowd and Matt Lopez join Ben and myself in person for this magical event. We talk about my “Show Up Every Day” mantra and our collective focus on the Long Game Mindset.
With hundreds of episodes under our belt, we still feel as though this truly is the very beginning and look forward to many more hundreds in the future.
We take a reflective look at how doing this show has changed our lives and what’s in store for the future.
This episode broadcasted publicly to a total of 1,058 live viewers who enjoyed full access to the Community chat during the event. We gave away over $2,000 in prizes to the group who attended live.
Last but not least, what really set apart this magical evening was the live jam session we put on. We transformed the room into a studio right before the eyes of the viewers and put on an unscripted show.
While the full live jam session was enjoyed exclusively by those who joined us live, I decided to include a single song at the end of the recorded podcast.
You may have heard about this little conference in cozy Columbus, Georgia called Creative South.
It’s like a well-kept secret. You certainly aren’t ever going to stumble across it accidentally because—let’s be honest—it’s practically in the middle of nowhere. You’re never just going to “find” yourself in Columbus, Georgia like you would San Francisco or New York City.
But there’s a certain southern charm and hospitality that is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. You’ve never known friendliness until you meet the generous reception that is Creative South.
Having an audience is a powerful thing. With a relatively modest number of people dedicated to your brand and products, you can easily sustain yourself.
You don’t have to have millions or hundreds of thousands of followers—the beautiful thing about the internet is its ability to bring people with unique interests together. Even if you have a very specific focus, there are a ton of other people across the world that share those interests and that adds up quickly.
Yet, many people worry about narrowing their focus. It feels like you’re excluding a bunch of people! It seems counter-intuitive: What if the niche dries up? What happens if interest suddenly goes away?
The good news is, you don’t need to be afraid to niche down. If you’re about the people and serving their needs, you’re going to adapt naturally without even noticing it. You might suddenly realize you’re in a different industry because you followed the people—that makes you immune to an industry going away or drying up.
Why grow an audience? This is what growing an audience can do for you…
