“Don’t give up! If even one person watches your content consistently, you’re making a difference in their life. I realize some people will read this and tell me not to be so full of myself in thinking videos or live streams make a difference in people’s lives, but they do. Whether you realize it or not, your personality is drawing people to you and you’re making a community in which they feel comfortable, safe, and happy to be themselves; they like being surrounded by people who like them and accept them.”
