Founded by Chris Craft in 2017, 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 dreams 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 with the art of blog writing. Going through Brandon’s course inspired Chris to launch InspireFirst. InspireFirst exists to help bloggers and writers like you to use your craft to inspire others and generate passive income.

Passive vs Nonpassive Income
InspireFirst is 100% pro passive income. We’re not saying that nonpassive income is bad. Our focus is to help writers put their time into making art with words.
Passive income is writing truly helpful articles and publishing them to generate revenue for you over time. Passive income accrues while you do other important things like spend time with family and friends or serve in your community.

Chris’s passion for doing business with biblical principles started his journey to learn more about mastering money (and not allowing money to master him). Curiosity, experimentation and the constant pursuit of knowledge led to the exciting launch of InspireFirst.
