I cannot stress how important it is being around people who have done it. Here in LA, for the Blogher Health conference, meeting people who have been blogging and making money from producing endless contents. There I was with my defunct blog… feeling like this tiny ant among the elephants.
I didn’t know what to expect but I knew I just had to be around people who consistently working hard producing content and build a community based on their passion. I needed that push. I prayed for that light. To brighten the path that I should take to pursue this dream of mine. I’ve been out of touch of my art for so long that I had to take myself out of this rut. This was it. That ‘push’.
Listening to motivational videos on YouTube would meant nothing if I don’t take that leap of faith. Packed my bag. Got my friend to come with me. There I was …absorbing like a sponge. Every single thing. I left the conference feeling inspired and aspired to be those up there on the stage giving those monumental speeches. I can be that person. All I have to do is to ….START! -Nawal
