A few months back, I read an article about an engagement bonus for listening time. In March and April, when people listened to stories on this platform, the author received a little extra money.

Is that still happening? I have no idea, but I do know that I haven’t received one cent for listening time. Not.One.

For Your Ears Only

And those, my audio friends, are the secrets to changing your life!

Listen Up

If those confidential, top-secret tips don’t tempt you to start listening, here are three more reasons I’m best on audio:

  • I have a lovely voice. I’m a skilled enunciator with a delightful British accent and a charming name, Stephanie (English, Female).
