My First Digital Product Sale

A mental shift every beginner creator needs

My first sale on Gumroad is what I needed to keep going.

$7 is not much.

But here’s the best part:

It’s a free product.

More than the money I earned, it’s the momentum and mindset shift that I’m celebrating.

I wasn’t confident in building a digital product because there are tons out there from famous creators.

I didn’t want to publish my digital product because I had a small audience and thought nobody would download it.

I did it anyway.

I built the product for myself.

I needed accountability and I needed a plan. If this product will help me, there’s a good chance it will also help another person. Why get terrified of posting it when I’ve got nothing to lose?

I reassured myself I didn’t waste any time because it’s a product I could use for myself. If nobody downloads, then nobody will care that I built a crappy product.

So far, it got 15 sales without actively promoting it.

The takeaway is clear:

If you believe in your product or service, put it out there.

You’ll never know if somebody will find it useful.

You’ll never know how a tiny win can change the game for you.

Here’s a link to the product if you’re curious :)
