Happy November 2nd. I have two important messages for you today.
First, if you’re in the United States, vote. As you may already know, there’s an election happening. Every vote is crucial, and every vote matters. If you haven’t already voted early or voted by mail, go and vote.
Second, (re)watch this talk. Mike Monteiro’s Creative Mornings talk (F*ck You, Pay Me) is the most popular CreativeMornings talk of all time — and incredibly valuable advice on getting paid for the work you do.
(How valuable is it? Aside from making me 6+ figures over the last eight years, the talk made such an impact on 26-year-old me that I’ve had a piece of wall art inspired by Mike’s talk hanging in my office since 2012.)
Looking for something to read next? I recommended one of these articles:
