Ben Foley started writing about how to use mindfulness to reduce stress and anxiety at FullyRichLife.com a little over 6 months ago.

Since then, his little side project has generated over 6000 email subscribers and $10,000 in revenue.

His secret sauce?

Tapping into the big audience of readers on Medium.com.

Having overcome stress and anxiety issues himself, he knew this was a niche he could enter and help others. And, with a different approach to using mindfulness in the modern world to help reduce stress working for him, he knew he had a unique angle to blog about.

Before starting his site in December last year Ben had never even written a blog post. However, after finding a passion for writing and encouraged by positive feedback, he “tripled down” on content and started getting huge exposure almost right away — something new sites often struggle with.

  1. I have some struggling in thinking now. How someone can teach or provide courses about mindfullness and stress/anxiety reducing if he/she is not neuroscience researcher or psychologist or have background in those fields? Anxiety, depression is serious thing and should be treated by profesional.
    I am not asking this because I want show disrespect to Ben or insult him or similar. Contrary, I express admiration to Ben and what he has been doing!
    I am asking this because of myself: I have “moral” struggle with this ( with providing teaching/give advices in something which is not my ‘call’ (no profesional background)). Do I have rights to do that, can I do that just based on my experience and love, and no detailed profesional knowledge background? Will I make a harm to someone?
    I would like to hear your opinion! Thank you!
