I’ve chosen — or rather, have to keep choosing everydaythe path of authenticity: to be myself and see who wants to come along.

Those who are turned off by me and my shortcomings? Not a problem. There are many other content creators they can go follow. Why should I be greedy and try to make everyone follow me… and even lose my soul in the process?

“Be yourself” is actually a journey.

For years, I’ve been on this journey of authenticity — a process of exploration, experimentation, discovery of my voice and my ideas.

Don’t ever be afraid of losing anyone.

Be more concerned about losing your soul.

As you explore and experiment with who you really are, you will naturally attract your true fans. Give yourself the permission to try things that feel like it might be YOU. As you discover what resonates deeply in you, you become more powerfully yourself.
