Forget the Gig economy. The subscription economy is where it’s at!

So you think content is free if you don’t pay?
Why YouTube will not care…
Eating glass & the road ahead
This episode tees you up nicely for a couple follow up videos that touch on these themes:
-the path to acquiring subscribers is not linear (there will be ups and downs)
-scaling content creation is more about discipline and consistency than having raw talent
-create content for your tribe (a la Seth Godin), not for the masses
-successful content creators have coaches/mentors that keep them accountable and on track
-perfection is not the goal. incremental improvement and consistency are vital. keep creating!

“Fail fast” means to put something out there and learn, then make it better. “Good enough” means not more quality than needed… Good means quality, enough means STOP. The art of knowing that level is about knowing good enough for who, what, and when, and whether further time or money or effort ADDS value to those answers based on the COST of the improvement. I think you’re saying, get it good enough and find some benefactors who can help you improve. The rest is just time. :). Nice episode.
I believe fail means you did not do your homework, planning, research. It is most often used in the context of a whole idea or even a company failing. Just throw something at the wall and see if it sticks. If you run your business with a fail fast philosophy, you may as well play the lottery. In the context of your comment, if we change fail fast to “Improve Fast” then your argument makes sense and is right on! You look at what does not work well and you react to improve it to make a better product.
