Steven Pressfield writes in "The War of Art" "If Resistence couldn't be beaten, there would be no Fifth Symphony, no Romeo and Juliet, no Golden Gate Bridge. Defeating Resistance is like giving birth. It seems absolutely impossible until you remember that women have been pulling it off successfully, with support and without, for fifty million years."
Resistance is the enemy and it shows up in multiple forms.
We all experience it at times, or all the time, and to lesser or greater degrees.
Defeating it, and it can be defeated, is the only way to win through

While running through the streets naked might get you noticed, it's not an optimum way to grow a sustainable business! There are other options to attract good and loyal customers and clients.
Is it time to shake up your "money demon"? Marketing and Selling is not about this one thing. Your Value IS about this other thing.
We can easily hide from doing the work we are drawn to create and share in the world. Perhaps we're afraid to be found out... We can compare ourselves to others. In the end, how does that help us move forward and share our unique gifts with the world?! If you're challenged, or stuck, sign up and get started with some great free information!
