Hey! My name is Kamga Tchassa and I’m a creator. This page is a representation of my steps towards making a living as a creative while living an intentional life.

I recently moved to the USA from Cameroon where I was born. I have written about it, made videos about it, and talked about it in various ways. Like every respectable millennial, I am a multi-hypenate. Translation: I have no idea what to do with my multiple interests and love for a creative life. 
I’ve worked as a copywriter, copyeditor, podcast creator, social media consultant, publications editor, video guy, audio guy, photographer, event host, helicopter pilot, etc.

Okay. That last one is NOT true.

I have taught myself a lot of things on my journey up to this point, and no matter how much I tried to get a regular job, I always ended up in a dark place when I stopped creating for too long. I’m still learning a lot, and I don’t intend to stop.

As an immigrant, I am learning to compare two cultures and find my place in race conversations. As a new husband, I am learning the value of communication and what it takes to develop a good, mutually respectful, relationship. As a storyteller, I am always seeking to find the best format to tell a story.
Unfortunately, in the past, I have wasted spent a lot of time procrastinating practicing and paying attention to all the wrong things. A natural consequence of this is the desire to get better at storytelling and find the community I can serve. Or, in our case, build a community I can add value to; a community that would choose to support and keep me accountable.
And that’s where you come in. That’s what the excitement is all about!

SOBER GOAL:
My goal is to share stories that empower creators to do what’s already in their hearts. I have faced the darkness of not knowing before, and I want to be your cheerleader. I want you to know that you can do it and help you in whatever way I can. I am creating a space for better human connection through essays, empathetic storytelling, and life lessons on how to thrive as a creative and human.

ABOUT THE CONTENT: 
1.The Loving Creative Podcast:
This is my baby. My heart. When you listen to this, I’m the most unfiltered, stammering, yapping, emotional self. I consider the podcast my research project for life with one question: 

Can a creative entrepreneur live a happy, full life? 

Some episodes will be just me, talking to you about personal lessons, pain, loves, truths and things my therapist probably has heard about. In other episodes, I’ll bring you a guest, someone I am excited about, to discuss aspects of the creative life you can benefit from. 

All my guests are chosen at my discretion and only if I find them interesting. So, if you see some people returning for various conversations, know I really, really, REALLY like them. And if you know someone who would love to connect with me (including you), I’m all in! 

As a patreon, when I say BTS ( behind the scenes), this means you’ll get access to my creative process and a lot of inside material on how I built most of my relationships, how I prepare for recording, my tools, workflow and the like.

2. Kamga's Blog:
For the past 7 years, I’ve been writing online. Then, three years ago, I joined Medium and found a new love for a writing community that supported and elevated each member. A lot has changed since I started there, I made some money with my writing, and I wanted a place where I could control everything. Also, because all my writing on Medium is behind the paywall (hence, the money), most of my previous readers couldn’t access my writing. Enter my new blog. 

If you visit my blog, you’ll notice how minimalist it is. I don’t want to ever have to put advertising on that site. Make sure to sign-up to my Blog Newsletter! 

I still write long-form content for my Medium audience. This content eventually finds its place on the blog. Sometimes, it’s the reverse: blog first, then Medium. As a Patreon, you’ll get access to friend links and even drafts before I publish them.

3. Video Content:
YouTube is my biggest personal failure so far. Which is why it will become my biggest victory. I started the channel out of excitement and I stopped because of things I never anticipated, such as burn-out and the toll of immigration. 

But I’m better now (thanks for asking!). I’ll be creating original content inspired by some of my favorite creators such as Matt D’Avela, Peter McKinnon, and the essayist Evan Puschak better known as "The Nerdwriter".

In the past, I tried to find a system, some sort of niche. But to be completely honest with you, my YouTube channel will become a place of creative experimentation and freedom. You might get a hang of what to expect only after you’ve seen what I’ve made for a while. Let’s just say that I am finding my filmmaking voice and you’re welcome to join me. There will be poetry, essays, documentaries and more. 

FINAL WORDS:
I will not be able to do this without the support of friends, family, and especially my wife Queenie (who supports me even when she doesn’t understand half of what I spend my time doing on a keyboard). I love you babe! 

Creating gives me life. Whenever I share what I’ve learned and I see that light of understanding in another, it brings me joy. I’d love to create for the rest of my life and share everything I’ve gleaned from my own life, and the many mentors I’ve had.

Your support will go towards making this my life. You can count on me to make your investment worth it. 

So...are you with me?
