Excited for this newsletter!!! My friend of 10+ years and brother from another mother,Juri, supported my journey by giving me a $5 donation on Buymeacoffee, and I couldn't be more thankful.
You see, it's not about the $5 dollars, but it's about the confidence boost I needed and getting me over the hump! They say making your first dollar online is the hardest, and my friend helped me with that! While the $5 dollars doesn't do anything for him, it did wonders for me. Since he sent me the 5 dollars, it seems like luck really is turning my way, as I have been reached out by multiple people to do consulting for their project. Will it materialize? I'm not sure, but it sure is better than not having any potential leads. And you know whenever Juri needs something from me, I will always be there for him!
The moral of this story is not to keep donating to me, but to support your friends when they have new ventures. Getting started takes so much courage and your support is needed and will be appreciated more than ever.
Starting a new business is like planting a seed and watching it grow into a big, strong tree. It will take a lot of patience and hard work from the founder to make it thrive. The founder is the gardener who carefully nurtures the seed with water, sunlight, and care day in and day out. Their friends are like a team of helpers who provide extra hands, tools, and encouragement to make sure the seed grows into a thriving tree. Together, they create a beautiful tree, where they can together enjoy the shade and fruits of their hard work.
And if you really can't afford it? Just reach out to them and tell them they are doing a great job. It doesn't cost anything to be kind.
