Those who can, do; those who can’t, teach—right? WRONG. You should be teaching right now, exactly where you are. It doesn’t matter if other people are teaching the same thing or if other people have more experience than you. Teaching what you know is invaluable, and it’s not only good for establishing yourself as an expert but it helps you understand what you know even better.

Taking time to teach doesn’t slow down your learning—it actually accelerates it. You’ll hear why it doesn’t matter if you teach something wrong and the reason you don’t have to have an audience before you teach.

Live Stream Event Tonight http://seanwes.com/live
 
Everywhere you look online, you see little counters. Everything is "likable" and every "like" inflates a counter. But what does the counter mean? What does it represent? Does it convey value? Is it an indication of worth?

I've been having some very real conversations with a few of my close friends. What I've found is that we have common struggles. Notoriety on the internet is such a strange thing and if we're not careful, we can easily get caught up in the whirlwind of acclamation.

Without reflection and critical thinking, we can lose sight of what's important. For some of us, maybe it's creating for the sake of passion instead of for "likes". For others, maybe it's returning to an emphasis on seeing others as people instead of just as followers.

The bottom line is that I don't see enough of these conversations happening, and I wanted to bring together these incredibly genuine, humble, and phenomenally talented individuals that I'm privileged to call friends to talk about these real issues.

Join +Sean McCabe, +Justin Mezzell, +Rogie King, and +Cory Staudacher on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at 8:00pm CST.

We'll be taking your questions in the chat during the live event at http://seanwes.com/live

Photo from one of the type anatomy pieces I drew for one of the lessons in the introductory course from my http://LearnLettering.com courses.


Shooting is going well. Lots left to do, lots to edit. It's just an INSANE amount of content. Total of 10 courses, each course with 3–6 lessons, each lesson highly edited down is still close to 8 minutes on average. Tons of work.


Launch date is officially the 24th of March. I'll be sending out some sample video content to those subscribed to the Learn Lettering list very soon. Over 6 months in the making and this is finally all coming together...

It's all about quality. The internet is absolutely full of 'quick hit' content and 'cheap laughs'. That stuff totally has its place (I need it sometimes), but there is a definite difference between quality content providers and communities, and big traffic for teh lolz. 
I'd love to see more quality offerings as well.

Kept coming to mind as I thought about this discussion:

"One more thing;
Why is it my fault? 
So maybe I try too hard;
But it's all because of this desire;
I just want to be liked; I just want to be funny;
Look like the joke's on me..."

Your list of course is in disorder. The first course is the last link of  the list and the last link is the first course.

I'm going to listen the first video of the first course (the last link). It's seems to be a very good product.

It should be great to translate it in French and add it on tuto.com shop.
