How are you feeling right now? I posed this question recently to the IndieHackers community I am a part of, and some of the replies were quite enlightening.
It's a really simple-yet-profound question to ask yourself.
The last few days have been eventful for me, as I made the decision to close INF Club membership. It was a decision which wasn't easy but felt right. Here's the update I shared with members last week:
📝 Taking a pause
My commitment to the Club, though, is greater than ever. I'll keep putting together the newsletter, whilst I gently decide on which direction to take as a business. That's how I can offer value to other INF indies (writers and creatives) here, in a way that feels good and sustainable to me.
Whether you've been following the INF Club journey since the beginning, or you've only recently subscribed, I thank you for being here and welcome you with a warm smile 😊
My friend Lynnda recently emailed me to say the following:
"I really think you are in the right spot at the right time as people allow their sensitive selves to emerge."
It feels like there has been a shift in the last couple of years, and it does feel like the pandemic has been a "turning point" for folks who are realising that their traditional lives aren't working from them, and want to create a life - and work - that's meaningful to them.
Are you one of these people? I'd love to hear what's been going on for you in these recent weeks and months. Feel free to write back :)
Lastly, I leave you with the words Lynnda signed off her email with:
"I share your passion for creating art and marketing art. And I think we will find it’s a community endeavor."
I could not agree more. And with that in mind, I hope you enjoy exploring the latest curated tidbits from the INF & wider intuitive community.
