Social media has a way of warping our perceptions of reality.

We’re constantly presented with “ideal” and “picture-perfect” examples of success. When in reality, it’s nothing but.

Nathan Berry, founder of ConvertKit, recently shared that ConvertKit will reach $100M in TOTAL revenue. That’s an incredible achievement, but he also shared the ten products he launched (many of which failed) before he launched ConvertKit.

It’s an eye-opening share that helps keep us grounded in reality, that overnight success really only happens over time rather than overnight.

Why LinkedIn Has Become (Even More) Uncool

Out of all the social media channels, I enjoy Twitter a lot. Especially as a Creator.

But since I’m mostly in B2B, LinkedIn is supposedly be THE place to be for B2B right?

Unfortunately, my own experience tells me no, it’s a cesspool of desperation and self-promotion.

I feel more vindicated that Trung Phan, writer for The Hustle and Twitter-Meme-King, also wrote about how LinkedIn is so cringe.
