“When was the last time you asked yourself: ‘What am I truly passionate about?”

Ask yourself: who are you targeting?  Every time you create content, picture them in your mind because you are writing to them.  Then what are you going to deliver and what is the outcome for your audience?  Joe teaches how to put yourself in the position where after you publish content, there are people excitedly waiting to hear from you and buy your stuff.  With these tips he shares, you can ultimately take control over both the content you share and how you leverage your audience through a niche you are passionate about.
