1. Depend on yourself

All creators have big dreams. Most of the time your friends and family will not believe in you. For example, Travis Scott was financially cut off and kicked out of his house when he quit college to pursue his music. Thus, don’t expect family and friends to support you. Depend on yourself.

2. Take action

Travis Scott was even sending out cold emails in 2012 to reach the right people in the industry. He sent an email to Anthony Kilhoffer who was so impressed with him that he signed him on as a producer for Kanye West’s label, G.O.O.D. Music. Travis was doing everything possible to make it. We all have a lot of things that we can do to make more progress. Thus, try some crazy initiatives to reach the right people. Do more and be aggressive in achieving your goals.
