Episode 1: The Six-Figure Deception

This is Season Four, Episode One. The one where you learn about what the Six-Figure Deception is, with real life examples, ripped from the world of online marketing. It's different than the Six-figure Illusion or the Six-Figure Distinction, which I've talked about before. This is about chasing (or falling for) vanity metrics.

I also take you behind the scenes in my own business and show you how we took the Creative Freedom Incubator from zero to a living wage in less than two years.

If you’re listening to just the podcast, you’re only getting about a third of the deal. I’ve been doing Creative Freedom as a web series - we’re in our fourth season now, and we’re just now getting on the podcast bandwagon. We’re rolling out this new approach to reach you where you’re at.
