Despite my success, in my heart, I am still just a nine year old kid in a small house outside Miami singing “billie jean” by Michael Jackson for the millionth time, dreaming of being a star one day. When I was a kid, I used to watch my mom around the house. I don’t think she ever stopped working – cooking, cleaning, folding, tidying, organizing. That woman never took a break. Her work ethic wiggled its way into my DNA, too. Before I was ten years old, I was putting in serious hours singing and songwriting, and the only fuel I had was my belief that I would make it. Everyone told me I was crazy, everyone doubted me. I have been preparing to write this book since I was that nine year old kid. Back then, I lived by a set of rules to increase my chances of success –like sticking to a routine, seeing obstacles as opportunities, taking risks, and raising the bar for myself. These rules were about productivity and self-mastery, because I knew that I had to be undeniable. I started on TikTok way wayyyyy before it was cool – it was just me and a bunch of high school kids posting weird videos! During that time I had this amazing front row seat to the creativity and hustle of an entire generation of young artists, content creators, video makers, comedians, influencers, and entrepreneurs. However, I know this to be a fact: creative people need a plan. It is impossible to dedicate to a dream without a practice to make it a reality. I want you to keep going. I want you to chase down your dream like I chased down mine. I wrote this book for you. Here is what I came here to say: My first book, Sing Your Name Our Loud: 15 Rules for Living Your Dream is available for preorder today. It goes on sale June 27th, 2023, and is available everywhere books are sold. And guess what? I narrated the audiobook – you can preorder that today too. Link is in my bio.
