What do you call a writer without readers?


Introducing a new online course: Writing Revenue: How to Write Well Enough to Get Paid For it

The writing course for anyone with a keyboard

Everyone knows they need a blog to create content to get their message out there. 

The problem is they create content that isn't interesting--it doesn't intrigue people to come back for more--it's not effective. The results are poor. Forgettable.

At least you have a blog, you say. Thing is, you're doing it wrong.

Good job keeping your blog updated, if you really are. Too bad no one sees it. Are you sure you're not wasting your time?

Content for the sake of having it accomplishes nothing.

I want to teach you everything I know about how to write in a way that helps, teaches, inspires, and entertains your audience and actually grows your business.

I'm the founding editor of Entrepreneur’s Handbook.

I'm a columnist for Inc. Magazine.

I'm the author of Runaway Millionaire.

I'm the co-creator of Party Qs app.

Every three months, I move to a new city in the United States with my wife and two cats, Emma and Calvin. They're cute.

I love coffee, rock climbing, and great questions alongside cold brews.

Before I die, I hope to step foot on the red soil of Mars.

First. I'm Dave Schools.

I write for big publications, blah blah

I have a top publication on Medium yada yada



As a top writer in Business and Productivity, I write about startups, entrepreneurship, design, and tech. With founder stories and how-to articles, the publication's bi-monthly newsletter reaches over 32k inboxes.

With over 60 million users, Medium is the number one place for reading and writing about ideas on the web. Founded by Ev Williams, this platform is redefining how the world creates and consumes content.

Don't look at my frumpy sweater.
