Words matter....they have meaning, and can impact how one feels.

To me, saying Trial and Error sounds like failure, and it makes me feel down.

But, by replacing Trial and Error with Attempts and Lessons, I feel like I can keep going.

What about you?

Some choose not to, but I do discount my prices for SOME of my clients...but even then, some of them can get out of hand with their requests, and this is how I handle it.

Unless you've already discussed it, or planned for it, do NOT work in exchange for products, notoriety, name drops, promises.....it almost never works out for you, but always works out for them.

Protect yourself and your product.

In my experiences, social media influencers do nothing but take advantage of those of us who are less famous, by making us work for little or free, in hopes of gaining a following from their followers...but that is not, and has not been the case with me...maybe it can work for you, but from what I've experienced, not so much!

As the title says, under promise but over deliver!

Whenever possible, you want your clients to win....and everybody feels like a winner when they get MORE than what they're expecting.

Do this anymore?

Have what it takes?

Continue trying and failing?

We ALL have hit that point where we want to quit, but if you do, you will be worse off than you think you were, if you try to come back to it.

DON'T GIVE UP!  NEVER QUIT!

We all have those urges to quit when things get rough, but believe me, things will much more rougher if you were to quit now, and try to continue where you left off years ago.

No matter how painful, keep going!

Emotionally inspired by the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, this episode is about Olympian Determination.

This is for those of us who've had moments where we wanted to give up, but when you think about how HARD Olympians train for 4-YEARS or More to get to this one goal, it is inspiring...and I hope this episode will inspire you.

Just because YOU consider yourself to be the "Best"? in your field, doesn't make it so.

I've seen work nowhere near as good as mine, sell for MILLIONS!? And that's not me being arrogant about my work, but sometimes, the "Best" isn't good enough...but let's talk about how to deal with that.
