“It takes me forever to write a single email.”
That’s what my friend Tish said when I casually mentioned I had written 10 emails that morning.
It’s a complaint I hear from other online business owners, too. Content is such a critical part of doing business online, but yet we struggle to create it consistently.
In this episode of the Tiny Course Empire podcast, I have 17 tips I’ve learned since I fired up my keyboard for the first time. Some will help you write faster, some will help you write better, and some will maybe just give you food for thought.
But if you’re a writer (and you are) they’ll all help you improve your craft in some way.
