Thanks for this great article Megan!
I really needed to hear this right now. And +1 for the quality and information density of Cole's newest book. One instantly feels that he published a ton of writing articles and put the best pieces together.
Yet, I wouldn't agree your writing isn't good enough. From what I see you just don't sell your soul to maximize your medium earnings but focus on high quality, authentic content. And that's why I love your writing so much! I'm sure this patient, long-term approach will ultimately lead to your desired financial rewards.
Let's keep going :)
