Why Receive Writing Coaching From Me?

I’m a professional writer, the owner of a viral publication called Mind Cafe, and…


It all began with a tragic diagnosis, and now, two years later, here we are.

By this point, you’ve probably heard a lot about our new print magazine.

What began as a passion project aimed at teaching people worldwide how to live happier lives has now developed into a globally-distributed publication, packed full of beautiful images and breathtaking articles from the world’s best.

What you didn’t know, perhaps, was why I started Mind Cafe in the first place.

In 2018, my fiancé was diagnosed with brain cancer out of nowhere. After eighteen of the most difficult months of my life, she passed away peacefully in the summer of 2019.

Deep in the throes of grief…

If you find yourself feeling stuck time and time again, unable to break the cycle of bad habits that get in your way–it’s probably because you haven’t done it right. You haven’t tailored your efforts to your needs, nor have you stopped to examine what it is that you really need. And luckily for you — that’s exactly what I’m going to teach you.

So where do we begin? Well, first of…


Lessons learned from being an older sibling and the CEO of an eight-person startup.

Until recent years, I’ve never considered myself to be a natural leader.

It wasn’t until a friend of my mum’s pointed it out to me that I realized. After I mediated a petty argument between her and my younger brother, the friend turned to me and said, ‘I’ve never seen anybody lead like that before.’

‘Like what?’ I asked.

“You don’t force people to follow you. You’re not aggressive about it. You just behave in such a way that they feel compelled to follow you. You really make an effort to understand people, and that makes them want to trust…

Adrian Drew and Alex Lleo talking about the story behind Mind Cafe.

What’s up Mind Cafe crew?

As you know, so much is happening on our end right now. From launching a distribution deal for our magazine with some of the world’s largest retailers to growing our brand faster and wider than ever before, it’s shaping up to be another record-breaking year for Mind Cafe.

And, thanks to the efforts of our latest team member, Alex Lleo, we’re excited to announce the launch of Mind Cafe’s brand new podcast!

In our first episode, you’ll hear me and Alex discussing the story behind Mind Cafe, lessons we’ve learned along the way, and our…


If you can’t get over your fears, do it scared.

I’ve always had an interesting relationship with fear. Previously, I’d avoid it like the plague. Now, I step right into it. Every time I find myself feeling afraid, I see it as a signpost — an arrow telling me to move in that direction.

The scale of my fears has changed dramatically over time. When I was younger, I’d fear things like monsters in television shows and the darkness in my bedroom. Then came my social anxiety. It sounds strange saying ‘my’ social anxiety because today, socializing isn’t something that scares me at all. …


Edition 3 of our magazine will now be released on June 1st.

Goooood morning!

I’m writing to you all from sunny London, where spring feels very much upon is and the temperature is rising. But this isn’t a letter about spring.

This is to let you know that, due to the fact that we wish to pack edition three full of the most beautiful, breathtaking photography, awe-inspiring articles from some of your favourite people, lace together those stories in a perfect-bound premium quality magazine, and ensure that it’s shipped with care directly to your comfortable home, we’re delaying the release date of edition three.

But I’m sure you won’t mind.

See, we…

When my wife and I moved to South Korea to teach English, we didn’t have a lot of money. I was busy creating my writing business, and I needed good rewards to keep me motivated. But I didn’t have a lot of money to work with. …


Lessons learned from crushing grief and adversity.

Glioblastoma. That word still scares the shit out of me.

It was a couple of years ago when we received the news. I’d been with my girlfriend, Charlotte, from the age of thirteen through to twenty. Seven years. What most people thought was just a high-school fling spanned across almost a decade of courtship, memories, and laughter.

Falling head over heels for someone is a bittersweet experience. Exhilarating highs send you soaring above the clouds — the first kiss, butterflies, and everything else that comes with love. …


“You need to let the little things that would ordinarily bore you suddenly thrill you.” — Andy Warhol

Society places great emphasis on the big things. It entices us to purchase fancy new sports cars, embark upon luxury boutique holidays and work ourselves to the bone to climb the career ladder of success.

It seems that happiness can only be found in attaining these things, so we crave them. It’s as if our satisfaction is dependent entirely upon great achievements and the attainment of lavish possessions — but is that really the case?

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes books, put it best:

“It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things…
