At least, that’s been my personal experience and what every artist and business owner I’ve met has told me so far. Maybe you’re the exception and you don’t have a super critical voice in your head that tries to tear you down and point out all the reasons someone else is better than you and your company and your ideas. If so, congratulations, please teach me how to do what you do.
If not, then keep this truth in mind and surround yourself with other people. People you know aren’t just “Yes Men” but who will counter your internal critic. Wise men (and women) keep a counsel, do you have one for your business?
Do you have one for your marketing? Sales plans? New product launches? Finances?
Do you think maybe you should get one?
