Storytelling is a passion of mine because so much can fall into that category, whether it's education or entertainment. That curiosity that drives me to explore the world non-stop is really a desire to learn and hear more stories, and then I feel very compelled to document, synthesize, and share them.
Not only do I want to share my story, I want to facilitate the interesting, passionate, adventurous people around me share their stories. I also want to help educate people who are curious about other people's lifestyle, work, and experiences.
By supporting me on Patreon, you're helping me share my story and theirs. And I really appreciate it.
Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for creators to get paid:
For patrons, Patreon is a way to join your favorite creator's community and pay them for making the stuff you love. Instead of literally throwing money at your screen (trust us, that doesn’t work), you can now pay a few bucks per month or per post that a creator makes.
This means the creator gets paid regularly, and you become a bonafide, real-life patron of the arts. That’s right – Imagine you, in a long frilly white wig, painted on a 10-foot canvas on the wall of a Victorian mansion. And imagine your favorite creators making a living doing what they do best… because of you.
It takes me several hours to interview someone + edit the audio + set up my podcast, and continue learning best practices for how to make a good podcast. It's important to me that the podcast is valuable and worthwhile for both my interviewees and audience.
As a freelancer, my time is literally my money, and I am working to treat this project with the same dedication to research, execution, and developing + implementing best practices as I would for a paying client.
So I decided to create a Patreon page so that the audience, friends, and family could help support this podcast and my writing projects. Your support means so much to me, whether it's financial or otherwise.
