An autodidact is a self-taught person. They are independent and self-motivated. Entrepreneurs sort of get forced into becoming one to varying levels—but becoming an autodidact is also a way to achieve feelings of fulfillment that make for an interesting life.

    Well for me, it helped to write for an established publication so I was aware that I had an audience and deadlines (to make sure procrastinating was nipped in the bud). I would recommend having someone you trust to edit your content before publishing to see if there is room for improvement in how you are sharing your thoughts. Best of luck!
