We had the good fortune of connecting with ZBG and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi ZBG, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
For me personally, recently I’ve been seeing growth on my channel and a ton of people showing love whether it be through messages or even in public, things like that really push me to keep going
Please tell us more about your work. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
Well pretty much I’m a youtuber who’s very unique and versatile with the content I produce, one thing that sets me apart from others my age is my dedication, my hunger and drive to actually make it big on YouTube, with where I’m from there’s a lot of creators don’t get me wrong but not a lot of them are as dedicated and end up quitting due to them not seeing results quickly which is a bad mentality to have, another thing is my creativity now I’m not saying I’m the most creative upcoming content creator but I can say that my creativity stands out a lot from others with a similar sub count to me.
One thing I will say is that I do not class myself as someone who is a professional with what I do and I don’t think I’ll ever class myself as a professional because there’s is so much that I need to learn and so much I don’t even have a clue about as well.
I’ve learnt quite a lot of lessons on this journey but a lesson I would class as the main one is to never dwell on a loss no matter what because the bounce back will always be bigger than the loss.
I want the world to know that no matter what losses come your way as long as you have the mentality to never dwell on your losses you can achieve your goals, I’ve taken a lot of losses on this journey, biggest one being losing my old channel, if I had dwelled on that loss I probably would’ve given up on my goal but I didn’t dwell on it and now I’ve basically bounced back with my new channel.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
All my friends who’ve helped me on the come up, friends from my old secondary school, mandem from my old YouTube group LdnMade helped me heavily, my friends in college big ups to them, big ups to my trio of friends who do YouTube outside london and all the other YouTubers who’ve supported and helped during the come up and my friends who don’t do YouTube and constantly always support me, you lots know who you are🤝🏾💯
Don’t get it twisted, I’m still with these people now and will be when I take off I’m not one of those shady guys who switch up on the day ones when they take off, could never be me
