Way back in black-and-white, someone took video of young Jimmy Buffett on a high school stage, with two other guys, two folding chairs, and not a lot more than that. Except maybe the part where Hunter Thompson sneaks in behind them. Long before Margaritaville became a mega-media empire, it was just a song that a young guy was willing to sing, again and again, because it was his own song.
So, don’t give up your dreams too easily. Most people do.
