Building an online community is the best thing you can do as a creator or digital entrepreneur.

If you’re reading this and you’re scared of starting because you think you’re too “old” or you don’t have what it takes, I’m here to inspire you.

It’s never too late to make an impact.

Today I was scrolling through my YouTube feed, and I found an impactful post from Fumi Desalu-Vold, a successful digital entrepreneur and content creator. Fumi has more than 500k subscribers on YouTube, and her success came in her 40s and 50s.

As I write this, Fumi is 54 years old, and to many younger people, 54 is seen as “old” or “ancient.” However, the truth is, as long as there is breath in your lungs, there is hope.

As long as you wake up to see another day, you have the power to make a difference.

I want to inspire you today, wherever you are in the world, to eliminate thoughts and feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt. You don’t have to be 18 years old to build a powerful community online.

Fumi is a prime example, she creates valuable content about relationships and lifestyle, and she’s the perfect example of someone who pushed through feelings of self-doubt and fear to build a successful career as an online creator.
