I believe that you are the wisest person to talk to about yourself. I believe you should beware anyone who tells you otherwise. I remember someone being upset that a much revered influencer said, "If you can't manage your own weight, how can you manage a business?" Now, this is one of those mainstay figure-head meditation gurus who's been around forever. My natural fierce-Momma instinct (made more so now that I have an actual baby) was to write him off completely - I mean, here was this person, an embodiment of perfection, being made to feel doomed to fail because someone, who doesn't even know that person, couldn't recognize that everyone... everyone... is great at some things and not at others.

Today, while I still acknowledge that entrepreneurship can be a lonely road, I'm clear that it doesn't have to be.Read More
We all seem to want cheap and free, but our global economy cant sustain that. Can you see the disconnect? Someone has to keep the flow of wealth (and well-being) going to ensure the wheel keeps turning. We assume that angel investors, venture capitalists, the stock market (i.e. your investments) and the government (i.e. taxes you pay) should take care of any shortfalls, but if we all stopped paying, how would they find the funds to do that?Read More
