Things are expensive and it’s not getting better anytime soon.

Asking your boss for a raise isn’t going to change things.

Not buying coffee? Ha, not a chance.

Making more money is your best option.

Ramp it up now to get ready for 2023.

2023 is the year to take matters into your own hands.

No matter what you do: small business owner, product creator, or blogger, this stack will help you make more money in 2023.

You’ve read my stuff, but do you know how I make money?

I create products and sell them online.

I also sell products that other people have created as an affiliate

The nutshell version:

I create an audience (blog posts and Twitter), get them to sign up for one of my email lists (ConvertKit), stay in touch with them, and show them products I think they’d like.

Anyone in the world can do this.

It just takes creativity, time, and a few good tools.

Here are the tools I use to make this happen.

Medium (My favorite blogging platform)

Medium was on fire a few years ago. Now people complain about how they can’t make any money on Medium.


That’s just a cope.

There is money to be made, but you have to approach it the right way.

First: the Medium Partner Program. You need 100 followers to apply, but once accepted you earn money when people read your stories.

Second: Google loves Medium so your stories rank fast. Do your keyword research and your articles will be found by people searching for that topic on Google.

Medium is the top of my funnel. I include a call to action at the bottom of each article asking readers to join an email list. It might be how you ended up here.
