Just a few categories of places in which a fan resides.
Supportive. Excited to see you. Hear you. Side with you.
Read what you’ve written. Help you. Enthusiastically devoted to you. Love on you…and strangely sometimes do almost anything to get next to you.
Oh but do not let them not get too close- for the minute you do something they don’t like, agree with or makes them uncomfortable, they go away.
Pay close attention– although the actions are similar, there’s a difference between a fan and a friend. One is silver and the other is gold. Don’t allow fair weather fans to ruin your excitement about your journey or destination.
