In my experiences, social media influencers do nothing but take advantage of those of us who are less famous, by making us work for little or free, in hopes of gaining a following from their followers...but that is not, and has not been the case with me...maybe it can work for you, but from what I've experienced, not so much!Support the show (https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/ahmcreative)

We all have those urges to quit when things get rough, but believe me, things will much more rougher if you were to quit now, and try to continue where you left off years ago.No matter how painful, keep going!Music:Eternal Springtime by | e s c p | https://escp-music.bandcamp.comMusic promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.comAttribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0)https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/Support the show (https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/ahmcreative)
Emotionally inspired by the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, this episode is about Olympian Determination.This is for those of us who've had moments where we wanted to give up, but when you think about how HARD Olympians train for 4-YEARS or More to get to this one goal, it is inspiring...and I hope this episode will inspire you.Music:Breathtaking by Purrple Cat | https://purrplecat.comMusic promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.comCreative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unportedhttps://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/deed.en_USSupport the show (https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/ahmcreative)
