The Price Of Fandom Episode 010 Show Notes
For this bonus episode, we’re thinking about money differently to the usual tips rundowns. I’m going to be controversial & despite my recent content, I’m gonna say I don’t actually think of myself as a fan of Harry Styles. I don’t think it’s okay to be obsessed with celebs, and a lot of so-called true fans…you’re not a real fan! I don’t think of myself as a fan for several reasons, and I think this points to something larger about the way we approach our futures and our future finances, and what we want to achieve in life…If you want to know the truth about Harry Styles and how Harry Styles is soooo perfect, let’s examine a truth about autism, and talk about the true price of being a fan.

If you’re interested in podcasting, I use Spreaker for my hosting.
The mailing list functions thanks to email service provider ConvertKit (affiliate link).
I invested in the annual plan (which nets a discount on paying monthly). This is because when I start a project, I like to commit to seeing my goal through, so paying upfront ensured I wouldn’t quit emailing blog readers after a week!
You can start with a free plan though if you’re really not sure where you’re headed, or you’re technology shy (affiliate link). I find ConvertKit very easy to use though despite setting up automations and sequences and all that fancy jazz.
Many of the images on the blog are thanks to photographer and content extraordinaire Kayla Marie Butler.
Kayla offers a package of stock photos and marketing resources so that busy entrepreneurs have the power to quickly create content that boosts their traffic, leads and profits:
Kayla does offer free stock photos for anyone shy of investing in the future just yet. Or it’s possible to buy individual bundles of her photos from the Ivory Mix Stock Photo Shop. Kayla breaks these into categories, so that it’s easy to just buy stock photography for business and finance brands for example.
