🚀 Half a mil in a year? Jay Clouse’s creator blueprint
You know that feeling when someone casually mentions they’re on track to earn $500k? Jay Clouse did that.
I stumbled on a thread he wrote on X this week where he shared how he did it. He’s been in the game for over 6 years (fear not, anon — it’s a journey) and wrapped up his insights in a tidy framework he calls the PARTS method.
