Affirmation of the Day: I learn from every situation
You already know that I just released my first ebook, “I’m Focused Man,” and I’ve been out there hustling letting folks know about it and how it could benefit them.Â Here are a couple of lessons I learned when I wrote my first book, “Move the Crowd: 30 Days of Hip Hop Affirmations to Change Your Life.”:
- There is a HUGH difference between creating and promoting: I put a lot into my first book and did not realize that I actually had to market and promote it.Â I was dead after the creation.Â Not this time, I created and I was ready to promote this bad boy so it can have the impact it was meant to have on this world.
- No man is an island: I had some help with my first book, but I did not have people working with me to help promote (don’t get me wrong, you will always have to be the biggest promoter for your creation).Â This time I involved folks in the creation process and continue to invite folks to help me promote.Â I don’t only ask for the help, but I tell them ways they can do it.
Here’s a little video that I created regarding the, “I’m Focused Man” project.Â Expect more of them with more behind the scenes information.Â There is even a 2nd ebook coming out with all the lyrics that did not make it into the 1st ebook.Â Sorry folks it’s only for folks who subscribe to hip hop affirmations.com (It’s not too late for you to join and be part of the Hip Hop Affirmation Crew)
