A little of my story

Hi, I’m Nika and I’m building The Shift, the newsletter for creator-entrepreneurs.

I’m learning as I go and sharing everything I know to help you grow personally and professionally.

15 years ago, I left London’s media hub – financial meltdown trying to make it work as a freelance journalist and a new mum and moved to St Leonards on Sea.

Since then, I’ve built a copywriting/strategy business and written 12 books while lone parenting.

My beat is the future of work: the creator economy and content entrepreneurship.

I’m excited about web3 and its potential for indie creators. A decentralised internet - a true paradigm shift.

New ways of living, working and playing.

This is my playground. A place to have fun and explore my creativity. Experiment. I want to keep this e-letter free so I can reach as many people as possible.

Want to join me on my journey? Here’s how you can help 👇

#1 Advertise in The Shift

Run a classified ad. If you have a product, service, newsletter, event, job, book, article or anything else you’d like to share with readers, this is the place to do it.

My loyal readership includes founders, marketers, journalists, creative entrepreneurs and freelancers actively looking for recommendations to improve their professional and personal lives.

Classified ads are affordable plain-text ads (up to 180 characters) which run at the end of the newsletter. Advertisers can add one link in the classified ads.

Cost: £50 per month (one-time strategy creation or ongoing support). Paying members get a free ad every month.

Sponsor Ads? Hell, yeah. Contact me directly.
