When you find people who believe in you, hold on to them!
That's how I feel about my experience with Measina Treasures of Samoa. It's an important platform for Samoans worldwide because of their tireless efforts to promote culture, and their talent for connecting people across the globe.
I am an American born self-taught writer meaning that I did not major in writing courses when I went to college. Instead, I took a less creative path by pursuing studies in Mathematics, Criminal Justice, Philosophy, and the Law. While that may have made me an interesting person, it is not the traditional path of an accomplished writer.
Freelance writers can relate in my challenges to self-promote and achieve sales.
My true calling is to become an attorney, and I've taken steps to achieve this goal. I graduated from law school, and I'm preparing for the bar exam.
However, I'm also multi-talented and multi-interested. In my free time, I like to write creative stories.
Measina made my life easier by stepping in to list and promote my original "Law School Comic Book 1L." They have a world wide reach which saves me effort from having to network as hard without them. The benefit for Measina is that they get paid when I get paid. (There are no listing fees.) And we have made sales!! Woot Woot!
In addition, Measina has their own YouTube channel in which they share educational, cultural, and entertaining videos. They even interviewed me to assist in promoting my book!
