Hey, I’m David Andrew Wiebe and I make things.

My website and writing are simple on purpose. I don’t want people to “miss the point for the writing around it.”

I’m an author, entrepreneur and musician.

I love to create. I love to learn. I love adventure.

I’m living the nomadic life. I currently live in Abbotsford, BC, Canada.

I founded Music Entrepreneur HQ and co-founded The Indie YYC.

I’ve been interviewed a few times.

Here is what others have said about me.

My 3 words for 2020 are Completion, Curation and Synthesize. And, here are my goals.

That’s all I wish to say about myself here, but if you want to go deeper, you can peruse my About page.

Catstar Images does my photos. Thanks!

Stop Trying to be so Clever in Your Selling

Cheating people out of money might feel good in the short term. But in the long run, it’s sure to result in complaints, returns, and exchanges. In matters of business and relationships, my mentors always told me: What you win them with is what you win them to. If you...

The Forgotten Art of Research

It occurs to me that most of us haven’t the faintest clue of how to research. And it’s become increasingly problematic in these strange times where many reports are vastly exaggerated and even fabricated. For many, research consists of turning on the TV and watching...

How Much of My True Self Should I Let Out?

I got together with a friend today, and he posed this question to me. As content creators, being vanilla means blending in. But if we outright attack people we don’t like, we could risk losing our following. Being banned or deleted even. Today, certain celebrities are...
