I’m turning on the blog feature RIGHT NOW, with no content and no subscribers because I have got to share this with you, with every writer who has ever wondered what it would be like to quit her job, with every freelance writer who’s ever felt ashamed at “having” to take a job, with every writer who’s ever thought that his low bank balance was a sign of low self-worth.
Read it. ^^ That^^ right there. Click and read. Here’s my favorite bit:
[At that point] …you will have only one choice… land your plane on the wild, abandoned air strip called Bank Balance: Fourteen Dollars. And this will be the LAST PLACE you ever thought you’d crash land, because didn’t you pass this test on No More Sephora Island?
The good news is this is a rite of passage that will launch you into the League of Business Badassery in which, once you are out of the money hellhole, you will be unstoppable. You’ve been to the baddest prison there is, you looked down the barrel of your worst fear, and you stood your ground. You didn’t quit. You got up the next day, and you wrote your next post, created your next offering, and answered the email with zero dollars in your bank account.
There is nothing more beautiful than running out of money and realizing that you are doing your work because you’ve got the guts to stand above proof, and push through your worst fears when there is no evidence of security.
There is NOTHING more beautiful than that, my friends.
What are you waiting for? Get up and fly.
