Most people don't care about the behind the scenes work, but want to be there when you've achieved the bigger goal. Be careful with those people because they'll act like they care at the end of the tunnel. They weren't there when you were going through the grind process.
Liking what you post on social media doesn't count as supporting you. If they're reposting what you're posting, buying what you're selling or helping you promote your business/brand, then that's a totally different story (which most won't do at all).
No one understands the work that is done behind the scenes and it's because they're not doing it. When you achieve the ultimate goal, it all becomes easier because you've spent so much time working on your craft and preparing for that moment. Sometimes it's good not to publicize all that you're working on. Sometimes you have to keep quiet until certain things are ready to be released to the world.
I'm trying to bring back poetry and impact millions of people all over the world. There are 7 billion people in this world so anything is possible in today's age. So keep working at whatever you're doing, it takes time and it's an arduous process.
Not one soul knew of me or about me until age 33. I have been writing poetry for 20 years on and off. I've had an interesting relationship with my writing for the longest. Now, I know that this is what I'm meant to do in my life. Once you figure out your purpose in life, you'll work at it tirelessly until you can't no more.
Once you've invested months and years into it, quitting no longer becomes an option. Believe me, I'm just as tired as you, but I've already put a message out to the world that I'm going to publish 20 books by the end of 2020 so I have to live up to my word and live up to my own expectations.
So the behind the scenes work is hard, but appreciate every moment of it and don't stop. Eventually, the results show. I'm almost 2 years into this process and I know that 2018 will be the year where things are going to take off. I'm putting in the work now for it to be the year where everything takes off. I'm doing the work and I will be putting in the investments into it too.

Start in January 2018, I will be doing podcasts weekly on societal issues and things going on in the world. My first episode will be on January 5th 2018 and they will be weekly episodes on Fridays. The goal is to discuss things more in a forum type of setting and to get people to think about what social issues affect them and how to go about bringing change. I also want to branch out to another audience...audio.
Some people are visual, which is why I have YouTube, but now it's time that I go to the audio aspect and using my voice to reach others. With all of the books that I've published so far, there will be plenty of topics to discuss and it will be a great opportunity for people to hear what I have to say.
I have a good year worth of content planned out and I will be writing more things as time goes on. My podcast will be on Podbean which is a downloadable app you can put on your technological device. My podcasts will also be on Apple iTunes where you can listen to them weekly.
I want to reach everyone with my vision which is to bring fort change in the world with all of the issues that are going on around us. So stay tuned to my first date where I will be publishing my podcast. Please subscribe to my blog where you will get new content weekly and follow me on all of my social media pages.
Don't forget you can subscribe to my blog and get new blog posts sent to your e-mail weekly and you can follow me on my social media pages (on the right side of the website)! Audiobooks coming soon for all of my books!
Be good and accomplish your goals.
