Oh, the shit we say to ourselves: “You’re a failure. You’ll never be a real [insert profession here].”
“You never follow through on anything. You’re a dirty filthy procrastinator!” It’s easy to have a chuckle at the absurdity of these thoughts when you see them typed out like this, but the fact is, this kind of stinkin’ thinkin’ can corrode your relationships like acid rain on a tin roof.
“What do you do?”
That innocent ice-breaker asked when you meet someone new. We’ve asked it. We’ve been asked it. Countless times.
No biggie, right?
Here’s what’s up: if your livelihood depends on a full client roster, a healthy email list, fans who spray your content all over the social medias…or any or all of the above…
That means that people have to know you exist. Lots of people.
