Founded by Chris Craft in 2018, InspireFirst was launched to teach you the art and science of good writing. It is our goal to help you become a more productive and profitable writer.
We aim to do more than teach you about passive vs nonpassive income. We want to help you become a better, more confident writer. Read our story and get inspired to write, film, or record your story. Get ready to share your passion and calling to inspire others!
InspireFirst founder Chris Craft acted upon his dream of launching media outlets under the Nao Media umbrella. But it wasn’t until he was introduced to the teachings of Brandon Gaille from The Blog Millionaire Podcast that he truly learned how to connect the science of keyword research and SEO with the art of writing and communication. Going through Brandon’s course inspired Chris to launch InspireFirst. InspireFirst exists to help bloggers and authors like you to use your craft to inspire others and generate passive income.

The Business of Writing
We want to help our readers and community members earn a living through writing. Writing is hard work and you should be compensated for your dedication to your craft.
InspireFirst teaches how to earn a passive income from your writing by teaching you how to write and publish helpful articles on your blog and/or publishing a book. Passive income accrues while you do other important things like spend time with family and friends or serve in your community.
