Over a year ago I was scrolling on Twitter and came across Tom Ward, Ward at the time had an influencer that I enjoyed following on his podcast. I got hooked. I started watching more and more shows of his and needless to say The Tom Ward Show has had some of the biggest and best guests in all of social media.

It’s impressive to see the show that he has built and continues to build.

Ward also works at Forbes. And he has a book that you can get online for free!

Tom recently posted on his LinkedIn regarding how he has became a full-time content creator:

I’ve been a full-time creator for three months.

Here’s what I’ve learned: It’s a lot of work: I’m probably working 60-70 hours a week and it is way harder than any other job that I’ve had.

It’s truly a gift to be able to do this. I’ve just had “jobs” for my whole career. Never anything I was really passionate about.

Now, I am actually excited to get up and go to work.

And it’s fun! Even though it’s a lot of work, I love 90% of it. The accounting and writing I hate the most. But even that isn’t bad once I sit down to do it. And I’ve also learned that being a full-time creator takes a team. 

It took me 3 months to realize this.

I was doing everything except shooting and editing the videos: Booking guests, reaching out to brands, writing articles for Forbes, doing social media (which takes an insane amount of time) updating the website, writing blog posts for my site, doing weekly newsletters for my email subscribers, etc.

Needless to say Tom has a huge future creating content and his show has been a blast to watch. I can’t wait to see what’s to come!
