D.I.Y. Rock Star Rewind: Not Sweating Anything (March 2022) 😅

Rough Start

— It’s amazing that yesterday turned out so well, because, as you know, it started out very poorly, attitude-wise for me. My stomach was in knots, I didn’t feel like I was accomplishing much, and doubted my abilities to be able to leverage the time the way I had originally envisioned it. But I kept GOING. Despite everything. And that’s all I COULD do to keep from just breaking down and throwing up my hands. I just kept saying to myself that, even if I WASN'T able to check these things off my list, that I was going to feel happier having worked on all these things at the end of the day, IF NOTHING ELSE. So, I just kept working. I didn’t give up, even if I moved from project to project. 💁🏾

Should I EVER play for free? (for the D.I.Y. Rock Star)

Found Myself Somewhere in There….

The BEST news is that, now, today, I feel like I am BEYOND that ravenous period of trying to grow for growth’s sake. I feel like that was the mode I was in when I quit my torturous job in 2017. But I feel like I have been through a couple of different phases since then and I have settled into this NEW place of looking for a selective few key connections—that MAY lead to opportunities over time—but that I don’t mind being in this weird bubble where some folks know about us, but that OTHER folks don’t. I like being a little mysterious and don’t even think I could handle being massively successful overnight….🤷🏽‍♀️ Which is PROBABLY one reason that I am not doing that “sparkle vomit” thing quite as much anymore. 😳 I think that choosing fewer individual and institutional targets is better than just raining down all our shit onto EVERYBODY we ever meet. 🤷🏽‍♀️ I feel that we get a better result as far as attention and it feels better, so THAT'S the phase I am in now.
