None of the factors we discuss below will make or break your business. And how they’re used can vary a lot from creator to creator. But the overall picture of your business—as determined by the seven factors below—is a good predictor of how much you can expect to make on Patreon.

When you’re trying to learn something new — like, say, making that new sales demo really sing — you need to practice. When you’re trying to gain expertise, how much you practice is definitely important.

But even more important is the way you practice.

This actually makes a ton of sense.
