The following is an excerpt from an email I received in 2010. It was written by a veteran agent at one of the top talent agencies.
“My team and I have reviewed your YouTube videos and we don’t think you can hold an audience. Therefore, we do not believe you can be successful in television.”
After I received this email, I printed it and placed it in a file that I would look at weekly.
Less than two years later, I am co-hosting a show with Oprah Winfrey.
Lesson: Your dreams are YOUR dreams. No one has authority over them except you.
