EXPRESS LANE

We all want our story out in the world…

but the work of platform building can feel like it’s taking away from our writing.

And shouldn’t that be our “real” work?

  • Do You want to build your audience but are not willing to sacrifice writing time?
  • Can’t set aside an hour all at once to focus on platform?
  • Do you know you should prioritize building platform, but it’s hard to know where to start?
  • We’ve got a solution for you.
