Your audience is here waiting...

After working on a client in the Bellaire area, I stumbled upon a cute store called Magpies Gifts. As I was quickly browsing the isles looking at all the unique items the store has, I came across a sign with this quote:


I immediately thought about how relevant this quote is in one's personal and/or business outlook and approach. At this stage in my life, I'm continually asking myself..."Should I expand & to what location?" "How will I achieve this goal & where will I find good quality staff?" "Where's funding going to come from?" and in this short moment I recognized that I've been holding back and putting up unnecessary road blocks for myself.

All these issues are valid and need to be researched & addressed, but instead of coming up with solutions to these questions, I instead have become more apprehensive to act because I am afraid of failure.

This is the first time I've admitted this to myself, but I'm glad this moment happened. It's funny how a short quote like this re-gave me confidence to know that there IS a need for the services my company provides and that my audience is here and is waiting.... so I guess the next step is to boldly put myself out there and see what happens!
