“Don’t go away from here without telling your story.” - DeWayne Foote

 

Today's featured author is spoken word artist and plumber, DeWayne Foote. DeWayne and I talk about his upbringing that taught him to ask boldly as well as what helped him become a spoken word artist.

 

Key Takeaways: 

When you transform into a writer, it opens yourself up for other avenues.

“The more I wrote, the better I felt.”

Some parts of your character are ticked away until the right catalyst appears.

Everyone needs a dose of reality. The dose is sometimes painful but necessary.

Understand your audience and your cadence as a spoken word artist.
