One of the most famous stories in Homer's Odyssey is that of Ulysses encountering the sirens.

Upon his return home from the Trojan war, Ulysses stumbles upon the sirens - magical creatures of the sea, whose singing bewitches sailors and lures them to their deaths.

Ulysses, aware of the deadly nature of their hypnotizing voices, instructs his men to plug their ears with beeswax and to tie him to the ship's mast. As the ship approached the siren's island, Ulysses becomes enchanted by their singing. He commands that his crew untie him, but his men, their ears full of beeswax, ignore the desperate please of their captain, rowing the boat to safety.

Unfortunately, that's not quite how the story goes...

Ulysses did not anticipate the encounter with the sirens, nor did he think to plug his men's ears with beeswax or tie himself to the mast. It was, in fact, the goddess Circe who warned Ulysses and suggested that if he wanted to listen, he would need to order his crew to plug their ears and bind him to the mast. The goddess even provided Ulysses with beeswax to plug his men's ears.

The importance of a support system

In this story, the goddess Circe represents a supportive ally, someone who has your best interest at heart, someone who can help you become aware of your own limitations, of your own lack of willpower, and notice your blind spots.

And, let's face it, creative entrepreneurship is just as treacherous as sailing past an island inhabited by beautiful and dangerous creatures.

A supportive ally or group of allies, that can take on the role of Circe, is one of the best things you can have with you when going through all the necessary steps towards building your skills, growing an audience, or monetizing your work.

This doesn't relieve you of any responsibility, but rather makes it so that you are accountable to all those who provide you with their time and energy.

While you still need to execute, now you are more motivated than ever to do so.

This is what irevuo is all about: to provide a trusted learning and development ecosystem for creative entrepreneurs, because, truth be told, you either die an artist or live long enough to become a creative entrepreneur. We are honored to help indie artists, self-published authors, bloggers, and other creatives, regardless of what stage of their journey they're at.

Hey 👋 I'm Cristian, the founder of irevuo.

Let's face it: The days of "build it and they will come" are long gone. But of course, you know that, otherwise you wouldn't be here.

Here's the thing...

For all the opportunities that are presented to us, we must admit that the web is more competitive than ever before:

• People are overwhelmed by the information that gets published every day across a multitude of platforms
• Ads are more expensive and less effective than ever
• Keywords are almost impossible to rank for
• Social followings are harder to build

Turning your passion into profit is the hardest it's ever been. And that's why I'm here to help.

I've been blogging consistently since April 22, 2012.

In the meantime, I managed to grow my audience to over 200.000 readers.

Creative entrepreneurship is my passion. Which is why...

I created irevuo to take everything I've learned about art, business, and marketing, and package it up into a platform that can help you build an audience and monetize your creativity.

You won't find more comprehensive content with cutting-edge strategies and tactics anywhere else. And it works. I've used these strategies myself for my own projects, I've coached others, and I've seen many use these frameworks to reach the highest levels of success.

Whether you're an absolute beginner, no idea what to do, or you're already an experienced creator, I know can help you get to your next milestone.

If that strikes a chord with you, consider making an investment to become a member.

Did you know that only 1.6% of creators earn over $500,000/year and only .53% make it to $1 million or more?

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, metus at rhoncus dapibus, habitasse vitae cubilia odio sed. Mauris pellentesque eget lorem malesuada wisi nec, nullam mus. Mauris vel mauris. Orci fusce ipsum faucibus scelerisque.

Yes, there are over 50 million creators worldwide, but the truth is that most of them never earn a decent income.

Why this?

  1. "Build it and they will come." The age of discovery is all but gone. People are far more reluctant to engage with, subscribe to, and support new creators.
  2. Throwing spaghetti at the wall and seeing what sticks. Contrary to popular belief, you can't randomly experiment your way to success. You need a proper plan of action, a deliberate and intentional approach, and you need to deploy frameworks that actually work.

Here's how irevuo helps you turn your passion into profit...

 

1. The collaborative web

Creative entrepreneurs thrive when smart, motivated peers contribute to their work, nurturing ideas into compelling platforms, businesses, and products.

Collaborating on another's work can inspire us, while someone else's perspective can help us better understand our own ideas, process, and audience.

Put simply, helping others create, design, and promote is the best way one can become a better creative entrepreneur.

This symbiosis is at the core of irevuo.

We'll be your support system.

You don't have to go it alone. Get answers to questions, feedback on projects, make connections, discover growth opportunities, and collaborate with creators around the world.

2. Practical video courses to level up your skills

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel; the playbooks are readily available.

3. You've got access to me.

About 90% of people who enroll in an online course… never finish it.

Why? Because people inevitably get busy, and setting time aside for learning is never a priority.

That's why I've decided to be at your service. 

Included in your membership, the ability to take part in live events, workshops, and office hours... and well, I am always one question away here and on our community platform.

Here's what people are saying about our platform...

David Stagg

To say this was money well spent is a massive understatement.

Vincent Quartey

I am truly grateful for the education you have provided.

Emanuella Chinonyem

Thank you for being generous with your ideas and experience. I appreciate it!

Melissa Daenzer

I follow several "blog" marketers, and I've read countless articles, some books, as well as listened to podcasts. This is the best work! It's definitely my blueprint now.

Richard Merrick

I signed up, not surprisingly, to look at how to improve my blog and blogging strategy. I got everything I expected and more. Cristian's style is clear, human, and provoking. I've found it helping my thinking not just regarding my blog, but my whole engagement strategy. He responds well and thoughtfully to questions. All in all, an excellent resource, and worth more than he charges (but don't tell him that).
