What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why. Please share a story or example for each.

Mel the Prophet- The 5 things I wish someone told me when I first started: 

Expect no support from the people you want or expect support from. I was always a good person and a person who was “friends” with many people, not just around me or in my community but all around and thought I was going to get support from them because I was doing something good.

INVEST IN YOURSELF: Even though I did invest in myself, I was expecting others to invest in me because of the ideas I had and how beneficial they would be for others.

FOCUS ON THE BIGGER PICTURE: As much as I thought I was focusing on the bigger picture, I actually wasn’t. I was rushing the process to become what I knew I am and I would attempt to force myself and my vision onto people without trusting the process of just doing the work day in and day out.

KNOW WHEN TO SAY NO!: Being a good person can be tiring when you’re attempting to help anyone and everyone. Some people do not align with your mission or purpose. I would give my hand out to anyone who asked for it and then be in a situation where the person or people would just attempt to take advantage of my kindness.

BenniHunna- Maintaining your confidence. Once you lose confidence you lose faith & you start doubting your talent. When you lose faith your audience will too. They can only believe in you as much as you believe in yourself. 

BenniHunna- Be more spontaneous. Everything doesn’t have to be planned out strategically. Sometimes you just gotta get in there & go do it. Don’t think about it. Don’t prejudge it. Just go make it happen. & see what comes from it. I’m not saying do that every time. It wouldn’t hurt to do it sometimes because that spontaneous move might just give you what you been looking for that you couldn’t plan for.

BenniHunna- I say different flows & beat selection. Try different types of music. You don’t want the audience to feel like they’ve heard the same song over & over. You can even keep the same style but just switch it up lil bit so they can’t predict how the record will sound.
