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!

How to 4X Your Medium Traffic in 80 Days or Less

Looking to grow your Medium traffic? I was too. And in many ways, I still am. I’ve done my fair share of reading on the topic, and some of the experts make it sound so easy… Well, I don’t know how easy it is to get 1,000 views per article. I just know what I had to do...

The Magic of Listening

You don’t listen. I don’t listen either. Because listening suggests we’re hearing what’s being said. Most of the time we’re not hearing what’s being said at all. And you’re already off in the weeds because you’re thinking, “the reason we’re not listening is because...

Stop Reinventing the Past
