DAVE KLUGE INFO (FROM LINKED IN)

"Just about two years, I started tweeting into the abyss. I had no goal of becoming a content creator. I just liked football and wanted to share my thoughts with others.

Now, I'm working full-time in a dream industry. I have a public platform that I never dreamed of (or wanted, if I'm being honest). I am making connections with people I have idolized for decades.

The one thing I've realized throughout this journey is that you cannot fake authenticity, and that is what will resonate with your audience more than anything.

I make missteps nearly every day. But the content creators who are trying to appease everyone find themselves stuck in a rut and unable to grow. Because they aren't being true to themselves.

For content creators that are looking to take the plunge, my advice could not be simpler:

BE YOU.

People don't want consensus thoughts and opinions. They want authenticity. The only way to provide that is to be you."
