Awesome. This is how it starts. I have been writing on Medium for a few months (not really making it a critical focus in my career however) and have also been writing on Quora — and have since gained over 2 million views and over 1k followers on that platform.
What all of this has helped me build is a community of writers/doers/creatives trying to help one another out and build the life we always dreamed. I have been able to use my writing to help supplement my income through my ebook (and future projects that I'm working on).
Shit, take it from me — someone who doesn't have 100k followers, not published on Inc, TIME, Huffpost etc (…not published yet 😛) and I have started to see real results from it all.
Keep up the hard work (that's really what it's going to take). This platform can literally change your life.
If there is any insight I can provide or anyway I can help (CTAs, building an email list, etc) ask away. I started following you to see your journey.
