Sometimes, the creator economy feels like a Ponzi scheme. Blogs on how to make blogs. Podcasts on how to make podcasts. Courses on how to do all this. I never felt this was completely real, but there are threads of truth. There are a lot of hustlers and grifters out there who sell you what you want to hear. But there is also a lot of value out there. The creator economy is about self-expression and there are a lot of opportunities to help people there. The question is whether you're helping other people or if you're helping yourself.
