Less than 4% of the estimated 50 million creators earn a living from their creations. While that might not seem fair, it couldn’t be any other way.
Success as a professional creator requires levels of patience and fortitude that only a tiny percentage at the top of the power-law distribution have.
This is good.
There is a clear path to creator success built on a very simple idea; Don’t give up.
As Jake McNeill from Creative Hackers says,
You’re not competing with 100% of the creators in your niche. You’re competing with circa 8-10% who don’t quit.
