First of all, WTH is the Creator Economy?

A market valued at nearly $100 billion dollars, the Creator Economy is a whole new world of opportunity for skilled creatives looking to define their own business outside the standard 9-5.

​For Creators, the road to success and financial freedom is paved with likes and follows, partnerships and collaborations. The best part about it? Literally anyone can make it as a Creator, all you need is self-motivation (easier said than done). If you’ve got that in spades, then all you need to do is figure out your value add, message, and what makes you stand out from the rest.
