Worst Moment in Music
- There were certain videos that Jimmy created and didn’t work for him the way he wanted it to work. Jimmy finds it very hard to maintain his YouTube channel because he is touring and working full time playing music. It’s been annoying for Jimmy that it’s not working the way he wanted it to work because he is not active as he was because he has no time anymore. Jimmy use to have ideas when he started to be popular in YouTube and wanted to make it his main and number 1 thing, but after a while Jimmy realized that you have to be full time to be a YouTube- er. Jimmy wished that he should have put more time into it. Jimmy realized that you learn what works and what doesn’t work and if you wanna grow yourself as a musician and a profile especially these days you need to be almost a personality as much as a musician. You need to have a profile behind you., the internet is great for that, but yu really have to commit to it.
