What is a creative platform?

Join our community

To make this whole creator thing work and support you financially, you need to build what I call a creative platform.

Your creative platform is the encapsulation of all your content across platforms, your products, your services, etc.

It's everything you've made, everything you offer, the way you show up online, and all the systems supporting you.

As you build and develop your creative platform, you're creating a flywheel for your entire business.

👋 Hey! I'm

Jay Clouse

I'm writer, podcaster, course creator, and more! Basically your typical multi-hyphenate-slashie-creator.

Before I was a creator, I was into startups. I've been fortunate to have sold two companies and invested in a few others.

I am fortunate to spend all of my time working on creative projects that I love. And I want to help lift YOU towards creative independence too.
