Sean McCabe – Founder of Seanwes
Sean McCabe runs a brand called seanwes and it all started with hand lettering. He spent 9,000 hours practicing a skill, got to the point where I was working with large clients, charging five-figure rates, and selling physical products with my own designs and shipping out orders every single day. He decided to launch a course teaching people how to make a living as a hand lettering artist. It made six figures in the first three days! The next year, he did it again: Learn Lettering 2.0 also made six figures—this time in 26 hours. Sean has taught many different courses on varying topics related to business and repeatedly achieving five and six-figure launches again and again with his systematized approach. As much as he enjoys design, what he enjoys most is helping other people make a living from work that fulfills them.
