Pride Month: Time to Thrive
It's been a while since I've updated this blog, but it's time to step back and see where we are about 6 months into this journey.
This is Pride month, an important and meaningful month for me, because coming out as gay 8 years ago was one of the struggles that has defined my life. So it's fitting that this month is a time of reflection for me.
I've been down on myself at times recently, because I was sure that by now things would have taken off and gotten easier, if not easy. They haven't. This is not an easy thing to do, and I've probably been too hard on myself.
Still, what I have built is a real company with a real following and a real demand for what I am offering. What I have built has been enough to survive. But to continue, I must thrive.
That means working even harder than before to sell my work and build a sustainable business. That means asking for help when I need it. It also means fighting back hard against self doubt.
