@DawnMentzer I agree, Dawn. Anyone who needs to be seen as a thought leader or innovator should consider blogging. It takes time but can definitely be worth it.

I too loved this post from @TRU_Vitality so much @BerniXiong. It is such a dis-ease of our time that the first thing we tell people is how busy we are - like that is some kind of indication of self-worth or importance in the world.

Great article @swoodruff - I learned this lesson the hard way. I got absolutely killed by a client who was a bad fit, and now with this business, I am extremely careful about only working with the right clients. In fact, I stress this with my small biz clients and am constantly quoting Michael Port's Red Velvet Rope Policy to them.

@CassieRandall I totally agree, Cassie. I think every entrepreneur goes through a period where they have to get distance from the people who don't support them personally or their professional goals. It can be quite a shock that sometimes close friends and family members may be some of the people you need to define boundaries with.
Do you agree @TRU_Vitality ?

@Carmen Rane Hudson Carmen, I am afraid I have to disagree with you on that. Please see my interview with Michael Port about the Red Velvet Rope Policy. http://www.carolroth.com/blog/michael-port-red-velvet-rope-policy/

@SteveWoodruff I think the people who are the most afraid are new service providers who think working with anyone with a "pulse and a checkbook" (as Michael Port says) is the way to go. It isn't. It makes you exhausted from spreading yourself too thin, and it makes you irrelevant. Loved the post @bradshorr

@sharonoday Me too, Sharon! I thought my initial projections for my business were low. I tried to be very conservative. And yet, they still proved wildly optimistic. But would anyone leap off the cliff into the unknown without that entrepreneurial optimism? Maybe not....
