If you have one or two people in your chat, you have them because they like watching you… So, you should appreciate that and just continue to work, and keep working and keep working, because if you put out good content, you stay innovative, you try new things, and you really, really show that you genuinely care about your viewers – which I do, I love the people that watch me… – if you show those things, you will be successful.
