So, you have a business. You work your butt off. You have read lots of books, gotten some of the best help available and invested in all the “right” things.

First off, I wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who reads this blog. Honestly, I didn’t know. I am not a anaylitics person and comments aren’t super common on my blog so I had no idea how many of you were actually reading. I actually got the opprotunity to meet 50ish of you this weekend at WDS.

There is nothing worse than the overwhelm that comes from taking a class and not being able to keep track of everything you are doing (and learning). I am taking b-school right now and I am having trouble keeping track with the things I wanna do as a result of the work I am doing. I am great about taking notes but a lot of the times,  I can’t find what I need in my notebook.

One of my super powers : a truth (bullshit) meter – I am notorious for not letting anyone lie to me about their businesses.

Names.

I can’t tell you how many people come to me during my 15 minute SHAZAMs because they need help naming something.

I talk about this a lot but I have never given you ways that you can start doing this right now. Sure “stop idolizing and do your work” is great in theory but how does it actually work? What does it look like? I am great at this but it didn’t happen overnight. I still have moments when I struggle with too. It is my hope that these tips will help whenever you are spending too much time on someone ease’s site,

I’ve been a designer, a copywriter, a video script writer AND  a photographer over the years and I’m going to let you in on a little secret that you MUST KNOW if you hope to do anything:

We can’t give you clarity. We can’t find your story for you. We can’t represent “you” without some very important information.
