Jun 14, 2022
Yo – Janis here!
This is Ideas. A newsletter where I share ideas for creative entrepreneurs. Let’s dive in.
4 ideas in 1 min. 15 sec.
The ‘lucky’ label excuse
We forget that creators we admire started with 0 posts, 0 views, and 0 followers. I sure did and labeled them as “lucky.”
But when I dig deeper and check out their path to today, I realize everyone puts in the hours, fails, iterates, and persists.
Sure, some might be luckier or better positioned than others. But that’s a small part of the game.
Forget about everything, start today, and believe you’ll figure it out along the way.

Losing strategy for creators
Don’t beg. Provide value.

How to raise your prices?
Close your eyes, spit out an uncomfortable number, and over time it will grow on you.
Most people undervalue themselves, and this is a way how to deal with it.
My friend Alex calls this the imposter syndrome tax.

Websites I love
These resources are fantastic. Thank me later.
P.S. If you could hit reply and let me know what you think about this newsletter format I would love that! Also, throw any questions at me.
Take care – Janis.
