How to Become the Architect of Your Own Content Creation Destiny — Especially If You’re New or Burnt Out!
For content creators, self-care is mandatory.
This is more than just “hydration & movement.”
Self-care is boring. It’s adulting. It’s exercise, play, massages, dental care, balancing your finances, and holding boundaries.
NO ONE IS COMING TO SAVE YOU!
You may receive help along the way, but the hardest parts of the walk are dark & lonely. Also, No one owes you a damn thing.
You’re probably going to learn a bunch of stuff the hard way.
When it gets hard, you’ll need to do a few things:
• Accept it
• Take a deep breath
• Have a friend who listens to you vent
• Have a toolbox of coping skills that aren’t drugs & booze
When you get good at this? You don’t vent anymore. You just pick up & keep going.

• Have solid working hours & protect them with your life.
Wasting the day dicking around on your phone is what corporate cubicle workers do.
That’s not what solopreneurs do! STAHP that.
