Jerome Here: Growth and Giving

Published 3 months ago • 2 min read

Hey, it's Jerome -

You Cannot Pour from Empty Buckets.

Ever heard the saying? That's been on my mind a lot lately. Ever since I was a kid, I've had this drive to do more, learn more, and build something new. And it's only in recent years that I've realized how much that mindset has shaped me. Now, as I take on even bigger projects, I'm not just mixing – I'm building something bigger.

But it didn't just happen overnight. It's been years of learning, and picking up skills along the way, which are now helping me grow my network and, gradually, my reputation. It’s like laying down Lego bricks one by one for a solid foundation.

I'm not saying I've figured it all out. There's still so much more to learn, to do, to build. But the thing is, I’m always learning. That’s key.

You see, 'You can't pour from an empty bucket' really means you can't build something from nothing. You can’t help others if you've got nothing to give. So, I’m filling my bucket first, learning and growing, so I can be in a position to help others more effectively."

Those who hoard gold have riches for a moment.
Those who hoard knowledge and skills have riches for a lifetime.
True prosperity is what you know and what you can do

And hey, if you're working on something exciting or need a hand with anything, feel free to reach out. I’m always up for discussing new ideas or diving into ambitious projects. I’d genuinely enjoy being a part of your creative journey!
