Sustaining Hope in a Creator Economy

Do you believe that too many others are already doing what you want to do? Do you sometimes count yourself out because you think that maybe it’s too late for you to pursue your field of interest?

 

The democratization of creativity.

Creatorship is on the rise. An ever-growing number of empowered individuals are using social media platforms as a marketplace for leveraging their skills and finding new ways to make a living.

 

Thanks to new tools and advances in consumer technologies, now anyone with passion and a smart phone can release authentic and engaging content to large audiences.

 

The reduced costs of producing, distributing, and promoting content without the support of traditional institutions and/or backing has resulted in more songs, books, TV shows, and movies being generated than ever before.

 

Agency and autonomy.

Lowered entry barriers result in more power going to individuals to monetize their handiworks, build a following, and earn a living selling directly to consumers . . . in other words, to create autonomy.  

 

Hope acts as a source of strength—because when you’re hopeful you:

 

  • Look for new opportunities, approaches, strategies, and solutions
  • Believe that, despite whatever disagreeable or unpleasant experiences may currently exist in your life, you’ll eventually overcome them
  • Are more likely to persevere and less likely to give up since you’re not thinking about defeat
  • Can do almost anything because you believe your efforts will eventually pay off

 

It’s not too late.

You stand at the threshold of a new age—one in which there’s an increasing number of people designing jewelry, selling tee-shirts, creating courses, writing books, singing songs, and dancing their dance.

 

 

Sustain hope, my friend, and keep listening to your inner voice. It knows the way of the dream tucked away in your imagination.
