Success or making it isn’t black and white, yes or no. For every success we see on a magazine cover there’s years of back story. Of “failure.”
For every video with 3 million views there’s a legion more with 174.
Those 174 are no less valid. They’re just as important, and we need to keep making them.
The world needs videos and songs with “low play counts” in the same way we need street art – it is PERMISSION.
It is a sign from the universe that says anyone can do this, so you should try it.
