Ask Waylon Anything: How to Help our World & Make Money doing So.

get elephant's newsletter

Waylon Lewis & Elephant Academy present:

How to Save the World through Words—and make a Living Doing So.

Tune in to hear Waylon chat about right livelihood, mindful communication, media, failure, strategies for making a living through writing, and more.

Our favorite quote from the event:

“Don’t write from the perspective of adding more noise to the world.” ~ Waylon Lewis

People often express their fear of putting pen to paper. A common theme we heard from viewers of the event was: “What if I don’t have anything particularly flashy, interesting, or new to add to the conversation?” Waylon encourages you to “just write your experience”—that’s how it starts.
