Making the Rounds

  • OpenAI releases GPT-4. The newest AI model is a major upgrade from GPT-3.5. Not only can it generate higher-quality dad jokes accept up to 25,000 words of text input, but it can also accept image inputs too.

  • YouTubers report Shorts monetization better than TikTok or Instagram Reels. The early numbers are in, and it looks like YouTube Shorts are the best channel for short-form monetization. With that said, the numbers are still pretty paltry. One creator reported earning just $2,918 from a whopping 196M views.

  • Google announces generative AI upgrades for Gmail and Google Docs. The company will implement its PaLM AI technology to help users work faster in its suite of office apps.

Working For Yourself

Struggling To Create Momentum? Embrace the Pro Athlete Mentality

Being your own boss sounds pretty great in theory…

But in practice, it’s a lot harder than it looks.

That’s because there’s no one watching over your shoulder to hold you accountable if you show up late, call in sick, or botch that TPS report.

So if you’re struggling to build momentum or hit the next income goal in your freelance biz…

Here’s some advice:

Start treating your life like a pro athlete.

Even though you may not feel like an athlete…

Your goals are the same:

Performing at a high level and sustaining that performance over the course of an entire season.

This can mean:

  • Waking up and going to bed at the same time each day

  • Developing a morning routine

  • Eating healthy

  • Exercising regularly

  • Finding ways to relax and de-stress

The more seriously you take your day-to-day habits and routines…

The better results you’ll see inside your business.
