After years of wishing that I could be a writer, this year I began actually working towards it, and I’ve been very grateful that I didn’t give up despite hitting a brick wall on a few occasions and getting almost no views or engagement at first. I’m pretty stubborn so fortunately for me I didn’t know when to quit, and soon enough it started to pay off.
It’s so true that even a few bucks at first is really motivating. It proves that you can earn money doing it, and that all you must do is learn to scale yourself and your work from $10/mo to $100, $1000, and beyond. Never give up!
