The ease and joy of being a whole person
And new perks for subscribers!
I’ve always had a habit of over-complicating my work by siloing my interests and attempting to fit myself into a pre-determined box — some niche defined by someone else long before I got there.
Do you ever feel like you’re expected to work that way?
For me, it means a slew of pursuits scattered in the wind, never making something I can fully sink my teeth into because I’m letting my attention wander among pursuits. And never fully knowing who I am, what purpose I serve or how much value I offer anyone.
Ease and joy happens when you understand how to pull all of your pursuits under one umbrella — with that realization, you suddenly become whole.
This is the wonderful feeling I had recently when I realized the whole of my work belongs in one simple place focused on one simple thing: having a conversation.
So far, I’ve been building Healthy Rich over there while talking to you about it over here at Substack, all while having this quiet longing to continue to connect and talk with writers about that whole part of this work that I just stopped covering because I’m a business lady now.
Let’s stop all this silliness and be our wonderful, valuable, multi-passionate selves!
For you, maybe that means sharing your knitting projects, cat pictures and blog promotion under the same Instagram handle. Maybe it’s telling your copywriting clients what you’re learning as a new parent. Maybe it’s publishing your romantic suspense novel under your real name while you run for governor of Georgia… 👀
For me, it means I’m continuing the work I’ve started with Healthy Rich and what I love about sharing my experience as a writer and entrepreneur through this newsletter — all in one place.
I’m simplifying this work by pulling together the newsletter formerly known as Notes with the Healthy Rich platform — starting today, all of our content lives on Substack under www.healthyrich.co.
You don’t have to do anything new.
You’ll still get an email anytime I publish new content, which now includes stories from Healthy Rich contributors and conversations on the Make Money Better podcast. You can opt into or out of notifications for any content section anytime in your subscriber account.
New perks for paid subscribers
Paid subscribers to this newsletter now get a lot more perks as Healthy Rich members!
Starting immediately, you’ll have access to all of our classes. I just dropped the content for How to Start Freelancing, and next week I’ll start to publish lessons for Land Your First Freelance Gig. In the future, paid subscribers will have access to any new premium content automatically.
If you haven’t already, upgrade your subscription to support our work to bring inclusive, budget-free education to more people and get access to all of our content.
You can see more about Healthy Rich and the kinds of content we produce on the About page.
