What happens when you reach your goals around making a living with your writing? How do you take the next steps into freedom and long-term business thinking?

In today's show, I interview Yaro Starak, who taught me about blogging, podcasting and internet business nearly 10 years ago. We talk about how his own online business has changed, and how to move into freedom of mindset as well as freedom of time and money.

In the introduction, I talk about the changes over the last few months with Amazon, reported income drops, and what this might mean for authors.

In this fast-moving world, it's too easy to think that speed is the answer to writing a book or building a career as an author. But creativity doesn't work like that for everyone, and the joy of writing is in the journey, not the destination.
