I'm dying at that first paragraph Chris!

This is such a wonderful write up. I feel like you are capturing a feeling that myself and many people I've been talking to have been experiencing but struggle to articulate.

"Money isn't the point of a creator lifestyle" yes! This is an underrated point and I agree, the thing that I think causes the most stress and resistance to staying in the creator life.

Great essay, looking forward to the series!

Great piece Chris! looking forward for the upcoming ones. I think you have the potential to turn the series into a class at some point. There are so many people in that same boat. The currently available ones like small bets address some aspects but I believe there's space for a more holistic one.

I live in the liminal space, Chris. It is where I make my mark in the FoW universe. You bring a new angle to the quality of light that exists in this corner of time. This is beautifully framed, with so many good ideas. There are many who need to hear this conversation as they struggle with what was, and not yet at what will be. I look forward to next week.

Thanks for sharing Sean’s posts. Thats a great quote from him.

As a friend once said to me: even if you win the rat race, you’d still be a rat.

The liminality never ends but you can learn to enjoy it!

This idea of Liminal Creators really resonated with me. I agree with your conclusion that those of us making that transition need to constantly iterate—it can be hard when you’re recovering from burnout from whatever corporate job you left! But there’s really no other option. I’d love to hear you write even more on this idea.
