Today’s guest has gone from zero to almost 50k followers in the last 12 months and has turned that newfound attention into a 6-figure online business.

This is impressive in itself, but what’s even more impressive about this story is that Dickie Bush has built his audience on Twitter.

You know, that social media platform that's always just ... been there. One of several platforms that I’d kind of written off.

In fact, in 8 years and 450 episodes, we’ve never done a dedicated conversation on Twitter as an audience-building platform.

Dickie has been a frequently-requested guest over the last few months. He’s a former college athlete turned portfolio analyst. But on the side, he’s the creator of, a cohort-based online course that helps you build an online writing habit.

Dickie opens up enrollment for Ship 30 for 30 every 6 weeks, and in the last enrolment, he had 476 students paying $350 each.

That’s $166,600 in gross revenue.

If you’ve been focusing on YouTube, Instagram, or TikTok, you may be missing out. In this episode, Dickie explains why Twitter is the perfect platform for quickly building an engaged audience.
