A good rule of thumb is, in order to be successful don't give up. In addition, to plan is always a great thing but, with the planning one should take in some relaxation so that they can release frustrations. I hope you find my answer helpful.
Yeah totally. Not giving up. That's the key idea. I've met people on here who make 5c a hub and if they keep on going and write heaps and heaps, they make $1000. Really, everyone's journey is different but persistence is the key.
