I'm so happy to say I've surpassed my first Patreon goal of making $100/month and celebrated by taking my first surfing lesson! This was important research for AER HEAD, the comic I'm creating, which features surfers. See how I persevered through fear and how I'll apply my surfing experiences to my comic on https://www.patreon.com/mindyindy
Y'know, when I first started Patreon, I wondered if it could really be possible to make legit money from it because I'm not a famous YouTuber with thousands of fans (which is a large portion of their creators). But I felt like I had to at least try it! My Patreon has steadily grown, thanks to the support of family, friends, and fans! YOU could start a Patreon too. Anyone could, really. There are so many categories of creative things people are doing on there. Even if you have a regular 9-5 job and want to get motivated to do your side passion, I recommend Patreon. You really have to plan it out well though and consistently post and reach out to people to start to see successful results though.
Do you want to be a part of the Mindy Indy community on Patreon and get the behind-the-scenes scoop on how I'm creating AER HEAD, the story of a surfer who predicts the future in his dreams? Just go to https://www.patreon.com/mindyindy and click the orange "become a patron" button. Then select the reward tier you want and you'll be able to have access to posts according to your tier! I'm particularly excited about the next set of "see the present" posts where I'll talk about how I'm directly applying what I learned from my surfing lesson to the comic.
