    The most important lesson from the relaunch of High Impact Writing

    By Kieran Drew
    This is an edition of my old newsletter Digital Freedom.

    It's lightly edited but otherwise untouched. I've kept them on the site to show how the journey has evolved.

    Thanks to everyone who supported (and survived) the launch earlier in the week.

    I can’t quite believe how things have been going this year. It’s been a constant pinch-yourself moment and I’m grateful to share the journey with you.

    Today I wanna share an important business lesson from the weekend.

    But first, if you didn’t see on Twitter, here’re the results:

    When I woke up on Tuesday morning I was speechless. I thought the first 6 figure launch was a fluke. But to now say that High Impact Writing has grossed over $320,000 in 3 months?



    And just a little overwhelming!

    I feel blessed to have you as my audience and I’m fully committed to reciprocating with more, and better content, down the line.

    It was also my 2 year anniversary since quitting Dentistry so a double win.

    But anyway…

    Let’s talk about this lesson.

    One of the best parts about big wins is the momentum after.

    Lots of opportunities roll in. Social media engagement skyrockets. Podcasts. Spaces. Etc.

    It’s all very exciting - and the ‘smart’ advice would be to take advantage of the speed.

    But here’s the truth:

    Success is not a success if you can’t stop to enjoy it.

    You might tell yourself you’ll take the break in a few months time. This is BS. You’ll never appreciate a win as much as the present moment. Jump right back on the treadmill and you’ll be running for the rest of your life.

    So work hard. Especially if you’ve got a vision - work even bloody harder.

    But schedule time to pause and reflect. It’s all too easy to keep pushing for a better tomorrow - but the real skill is being able to enjoy today.

    To your freedom,


    Kieran Drew
