Why do people expect me to work for free?
Hey, since when is that a problem?
Since your business has grown and you don’t have time to work for free anymore. That’s a good problem to have!

When You Get Older, You Will Understand
"One, two, skip a few, ninety nine, a hundred!"
Some days I wish that there would be a good way to do that in business, as well.
One post, two posts, skip a few, ninety nine, a hundred!
One client, two clients, skip a few, ninety nine, a hundred!
One sale, two sales, skip a few, ninety nine, a hundred!
Wouldn't that be nice!

Sick of Success?
Your success is making you sick.
But, you’re pretty sure you are on the right track.
You just feel like you want to run away and hide in a little corner.
Calm down. It’s normal.
Did you ever hear of fear of success?
Yes. It’s worse than fear of failure. Because most people don’t recognize it.
But now, you are not most people.
How To Answer Your Own Questions
My consulting clients come to me with lots questions. Here is a big one-
“Is it worth it for me to continue doing XYZ?”
Instinctively, I run to analyze the numbers. And it’s true, the numbers tell a big story.
But, there is another major part I need to take into the equation. That is YOU!

"Ma, I want to do this."

"Hmmm…Let me talk to your father about this…"

My parents had a hard time agreeing.
