To be able to translate one’s personal and professional visions into reality, it is advantageous to both have adequate resources and support from friends and family. Inarguably, money and industry connections can lessen the burden aspirants face in their journey to success. Additionally, support, whether physical, emotional, or financial in nature, allows people to keep moving forward, especially amidst difficulties.
However, the reality is, not every dreamer has the privilege of being on the receiving end of either or both of these factors. The singer-songwriter G.P.
