I got more out of Great Founders Write than I did from a $17k coaching program.
– Sara Loretta, founder of 99 & St. Claire
Writing is the most valuable skill for business and personal success.
But becoming a confident and consistent writer is easier said than done.
We are inundated with writing advice, courses, and frameworks.
But all the knowledge in the world is useless without three overlooked ingredients for becoming a better writer:
Feedback, accountability, and community.
Writing is lonely, but it doesn't have to be. In fact, the key to better writing is to surround yourself with like-minded peers.
Yet most writing cohorts appeal to the masses. You're just another face in a sea of hundreds of writers, all with different dreams, goals, and aspirations.
What if there was a community—kept intentionally small—for ambitious founders to write their way to startup success?
A place where you could work side-by-side with fellow entrepreneurs to build your audience and business?
Where faces on a screen became friends who supported you, encouraged you, and helped you grow?
If that sounds like a dream, you're in the right place.
