Fire the Haters: Finding Courage to Create Online in a Critical World with Jillian Johnsrud

The Pursuit of Learning

Sharing our creative and entrepreneurial endeavors online might feel like navigating an unknown sea. There can be hundreds of containing setbacks and stumbling blocks that could sink our ship. Today's guest on the pursuit of learning podcast is someone who will walk us through this process with the lessons she collected throughout the years. Jillian Johnsrud joins today's episode to offer the expertise and experience she gained while successfully navigating this creative entrepreneurial life. Additionally, she guides us to nurture the courage necessary to create online in a hostile atmosphere.Jillian is a well-known public speaker, a coach, a podcaster, and a writer. Jillian directed her personal and professional experiences into a creative life after achieving financial independence at the age of 32. In her book, Fire the Haters, she teaches us the ropes and provides us with a road map for our creative business journeys. Also, she has been featured on Good Morning America, Forbes, USA Today, and Marketwatch, among other publications. Jillian begins the podcast by responding to the question of what motivates her right now. Then she shares some of the main things that leaped out at her in the coming years. Throughout the show, Jillian provides mind-blowing insights about how to overcome hurdles to online engagement. While sharing her personal experiences, Jillian notes significant facts when dealing with internet stupidity. It is critical to decide how you wish to engage when working online because our time, energy, and attention are all finite resources. We cannot let them be squandered on the infinite idiocy of the internet. Mentioning that, she emphasizes that we do not have to justify our actions or share our vision with the rest of the world, as the majority would not understand. Also, she stresses that we do not have to be concerned with every social media reaction since the problem is with others most of the time, not with us. Moreover, Jillian emphasizes the need to get started early by delving into the concept of testing and scaling. Although the go-big or go-home approach sounds fantastic, she points out that most of the abilities required are not readily available initially and must be acquired along the way. Jillian mentions that it is tough to plot the next decade from your home couch without taking a single step. Hence she recommends that if we begin early, we will have more time, space, availability, and a scalable solution when the time comes.Among the many mind-blowing topics she discussed, one of the most thought-provoking is the three most critical principles a digital creative should follow. Also, she highlights the importance of maintaining boundaries and enforcing norms to effectively address the issues inherent in online work. Finally, she ends the conversation by discussing the inner critic and imposter syndrome and how to deal with them effectively. Resources:Connect with Jillian:LinkedIn: linkedin.com/in/jillian-johnsrud-mma/Website: jillianjohnsrud.comMentioned in the episode: Fire the Haters: Finding Courage to Create Online in a Critical World: goodreads.com/book/show/58875927-fire-the-haters?from_search=true&from_srp=true&qid=DX9Ol1hugx&rank=1
