The moment I stopped judging myself for being a weird, multipassionate entrepreneur, the frequency of people saying, “What do you do for a living?” went down drastically. …
I’m writing you from 30,000+ feet en route to Los Angeles for Richard Branson’s Rock The Kasbah event.
I’m thrilled to see one of my favorite artists, Mary J. Blige, perform and get this. . . a live Pussycat Dolls Burlesque show is on the agenda too!
One of the things I love about watching live performances is that it reminds me of how important it is to follow your dreams, despite your fear about what others will think.
Because when you forge your own path and step outside of the “norm” so to speak, you will be judged by others.
And often, that judgment can be harsh.
In fact, the more unconventional you are, the more you can expect to have that “nobody gets me” feeling and all the fear and anxiety that comes along with it.
Especially in the beginning stages, when your family and friends may not even understand what you’re trying to do, it’s crucial to get this fear under control.
If you’ve ever felt like nobody gets you, your business, or what you’re trying to create in the world, then watch this video.
I’ll share the big mistake I made when I first started out, along with some concrete steps to manage your fear of being judged by others, so you can keep on truckin’.
