Never despise the days of little beginnings!
As the day passes by, the community keeps evolving and creatives have never stopped doing big!
I was opportune to have a short, yet inspiring session with a creative person from the community and I believe we’ll pick something from the little things he said. Kindly sit back and enjoy the ride!
Temitope: Hello dear creative, can I meet you?
Creative:Hi, my name is Abiola Aduragbemi. I’m a content creator, digital marketer does seem like quite a stretch but it’s in the portfolio, lol. Most importantly, a podcaster as well.
Temitope: Great! Let’s dive into the session!
As a podcaster and creator, what’s one thing you wished you had known before you started your career?
Aduragbemi: It has to be knowing not to underestimate your abilities or worrying that one person is doing more than yourself in the niche.
Temitope: Who are the 3 people that have influenced you since the inception of your career?
Aduragbemi: Mark Manson. Gary Vee. Every human encounter I get.
Temitope: What advice will you give anyone wanting to start a career like yours?
Aduragbemi: Do. JUST DO IT.
Temitope: What is your biggest failure and did you learn from it?
Aduragbemi: Well damn! I personally haven’t failed enough but I do think that one thing I hate myself for is the fact that I underestimate my capabilities and ignoring how far I’ve come. The cure? Appreciate your process. I constantly fail to do this and in turn has led to a series of not so good events.
Just as Bruce Garrabarandt said;
“Creativity doesn’t wait for that perfect moment. It fashions its own perfect moments out of ordinary ones.”
