So I've had this little voice telling me I need to do more on the marketing front. I know, I know, I don't do as much as I could. How conveniently life gets in the way of that. Or does it? I know and you know, when we really want to do something; we make it happen somehow, someway, right?
So you know me. My next question is, why don't I do more. Not enough time, don't know how, it's too hard, I could do it tomorrow - excuses, excuses, excuses, right? I drill down and drill down some more, lo and behold, I came up with pay dirt. Fear...fear of what I ask? Fear of rejection, Yep this is the real reason for my lack of action in this area. I feel quite naked sharing it with you guys. Rejection especially from someone deciding if my art, my creation, my self-expression is acceptable, worthy, cool and valuable enough for others to pay money for it. That's a pretty big hairy blocker isn't it? Only if I let it be . And I think I have let it be big, hairy and scary for too long. OK, time to get past it. To be continued...
