Unapologetic for being organized (and driven).
And you should be too. Never let anyone convince you your dream is too big, or too much work.
A specific post inspired what you’re reading now.
It was the gut reaction comment written to Bob. Sharing it now to capture the spirit of today’s five posts – no guts, no glory:
Thank you Bob, you are kind and generous to take time out to read and comment. People are very busy.
Eventually, close friends and colleagues will learn about the fees, but no one will ever remember the six years of working two jobs seven days a week, traveling, staying healthy, spending $80k on 72 months of operating expenses for the first six years, not making a dime (on the second job, my only job now), and never paying myself any salary, ever.
No one will ever know the countless times the thought of quitting seemed like the educated and practical choice.
The only thing more remarkable than the speaking fee is the indomitable will to make a difference.
Have an awesome weekend.
Luck favors the determined.
