Quotes from this episode:
"I truly believe that we've entered into a stage of quality content being really desired by these platforms."
"As a content creator and yoga teacher and meditation teacher you are learning, sometimes as you go."
"The tools are there. It's just a matter of being like, how do I get bold and confident and just say out loud, I'm a yoga teacher, this is my career, this is my business and every single donation that you give me, goes straight to me and thank you for supporting me and helping me support you and being a patron of my craft."
"That's the hardest part for a content creator is just to simply do it just to record just to hit post."
