Hi! I'm Connor, I study the future of work in Seattle and give business therapy to makers. AMA! 👋
Hi makers! Connor here. I run a podcast/interview series called "The Orbit" in which I interview web-based creatives who run their own small businesses online. Through a combination of YouTube, Instagram, Patreon, and e-storefronts, they are able to turn their hobbies into their professions, bringing in thousands of dollars a month across various platforms. All of this sounded a bit "too good to be true", so I started asking questions and learned that these folks are, in truth, doing the work of at least five people. As budding entrepreneurs, they haven't figured out the process completely, and a lot of the time feel overwhelmed or lost with the "business side of things". Seeing this need, I repositioned "The Orbit" to provide consultation services that I call "business therapy", because sometimes you just need to talk about it with someone who understands. This led to the creation of my book "Sustainable Loops" (illustrated by my partner Cheyenne Barton) which serves as a pocket-guide for honing in sound productivity habits and business practices. It's currently available on Amazon if you want to check it out. As far as the interviews themselves, they are on YouTube and podcast, which you can find links to on my Twitter: @connorthemiller. Are you a web-based creative? Do you want to know more about the future of work? Are you interested in small, decentralized, and independent companies and communities online? Ask me anything!
