When you’re in a relationship make sure you stay an autark cell so you’re only dependent on yourself, not on others.
Same in business, meaning: Build your own platform and maintain it. Don’t ever become dependent on other people’s platforms (YouTube, FB).
I know it’s hard to build your own thing (I struggle, too) but the world needs independent makers for diversity and to prevent monopolies and other unhealthy outcomes like mono cultures.
Once your platform sustains you and allows a prosperous life, you’ll be proud as fuck.
