To Go Where Your VisionPoints, a few inspiration points for you and your business.

You know the worst part? The people who are the most prone to [fear of rejection] are the ones who have the best stuff. The ones who need to share it with the world. The remarkable ones.

Because if you’re really putting it out there, if it has a piece of your heart in it, then you’re horribly horribly vulnerable. And rejection completely feels like it’s about you.

I have no good advice other than, if it makes you want to throw up, you’re probably doing it right. We’ve all been there (and we’re right here behind you).

—Sonia Simone, commenting on Ladders on the Right Wall at Janice Cartier

I adore Sonia. She’s here, there, and everywhere as usual these days, being herself and getting paid for it. (Isn’t that the dream?) But what I really love is when we catch someone in a quiet moment, thinking quickly, right from the heart without a thought for Google juice or PayPal or 2.0 or even social networking, and…

She’s still as utterly wonderful. She’s still as wise. And she’s still talking right to the heart of every small business owner, every entrepreneur, everyone who wants to reach for that dream.

I knew there was a reason I adored her.

Are you putting yourself out there so that you want to throw up on a regular basis? If not, what are you waiting for? Get up, go for it, and get scared. Janice and Sonia and I need more company.

 

Grow and be well,
