They're is talent everywhere, 24/7...
Trust me when I tell you that there is nothing more humbling than being surrounded by some of the most talented people in the world every single day. But there was one thing I learned very quickly: It's not the most talented people who make it.
It's not the ones with the biggest dreams.... And surprisingly enough, it's not even the ones whose parents have the biggest pockets. It's the ones who put in the work! The ones who were first up and last to go to sleep. The ones who chose to be out networking at the open mic night instead of going to that bar down the hall.
The ones who spent their last crumbled dollar from their shift to finish out that home studio setup so they could release their EP on schedule. The ones who chopped it with the smart kids down the street at MIT to get help making a website and learning about SEO.
The ones who skipped the bar to put out their weekly YouTube video so they could keep the attention of their subscribers. Those types of decisions add up over time and make a big difference. You can have all the talent in the world, but if you're not using it wisely, time will slip away.
