Hi, I’m Corbett Barr.
Recently, after more than a decade of creating content here and elsewhere on the web, I started over.
I deleted the bulk of 10+ years of social media posts, articles, videos, side projects and more. Call it digital housekeeping, or a spring cleaning, I made a clean sweep.
This is still very much a work in progress. I’m re-evaluating how I exist online. Essentially, I want to make digital room for who I’ve become, and who I intend to be. Much of the old content wasn’t serving the new me.
You can read more about what prompted the reboot here.
I’ve been an independent creator since 2009, earning a living from blogging, podcasting, online courses, memberships, SaaS and more. I’ve bootstrapped, freelanced, consulted and raised venture capital.
After years of working and creating online, it all became a little too complicated and consuming. Now I’m starting fresh.
I’m a huge fan of digital media, but I believe we should all be consuming and producing it more intentionally, in a way that serves us, as opposed to us serving it.
On this site and over on Twitter, I write about the creator economy, digital minimalism, and the psychology of success. My writing is meant to be a conversation, so please say hi and let me know what you think (just reply to any of my emails or send me a tweet).
I write a monthly-ish newsletter for people who make things on the Internet. I hope you’ll subscribe:
