This course (updated for 2019) comes with a mobile-optimized 197-page ebook, audiobook, and bonus video lessons on Udemy.
I started on Medium with 12 followers.
My publication was an empty shell of crummy stories.
I was not a good student in school (ask my professors), although I journaled every day for myself.
Then I learned how to write a press release and I saw it get published in the local newspaper.
A writer at Ooomf (now Unsplash) taught me how to write a blog post.
I started writing about entrepreneurship, a topic I love.
Then I wrote a viral story that shot my views from 152 to 94,000.
It triggered my other Medium stories to take off.
My work was republished in Business Insider, TNW, Smashing Magazine, Quartz, Observer, and Inc.com.
It kept happening.
I was given a column at Inc.com.
I started writing at rates of $1 per word.
My publication jumped into the top 40 on Medium.
Today, it has over 90,000 followers.
I quit my job to write full-time and I make more than I did at my agency job in Washington DC.
You can do exactly this.
In this ebook, audiobook, and bonus video course, I've taken everything I've learned not only from 5 years of writing and growing on Medium but also from a data analysis of the top 100 Medium stories of all time, and distilled it into 30 lessons that will transform the way you think about writing, on and off Medium.
