Every day, we get lots of inspiring comments from you, our readers! In this roundup, we share some of our favorites from the previous week.
While reading your blog, I kept saying to myself “so it’s not just me….” I’m so glad to know that there are people who think and feel like me. I’m also glad to know that there is a launch season because I was feeling so bombarded with information and “invitations” that I just shut down and stopped reading and just hit delete. After reading so much of the information out there, I have found that most of it is repetitive, a lot of it is common sense and I feel like I’m on a scavenger hunt looking for the unique and valuable nuggets.

Thanks so much for all of the insights from someone who’s “been there, done that.” It helps me to look at my little biz in a new frame of mind. I think that the price point of product is a real eye-opener. Thanks again!

I say this as a thoughtful marketer, and as an artist who walked a mile as an indiepreneur. When I first started copywriting, a colleague gave me some of the best advice I ever received. She told me to think of copywriting as the job that it was and to separate my “writing” from my “copywriting.” Writing was for pleasure. Copywriting was for profit. Separating the “art” from the “business” is not an easy task for anyone who considers themselves a creative, but it is necessary. I think people who are lucky enough to be creative for a living need to be adept at working both sides of their brain from 9-5. And therein lies the challenge. I think you do a wonderful job of making that challenge, less challenging.

What a great reminder this article is! It’s always good to hear that we’re all human, I know I tend to forget sometimes… And then find out, once again, that I’m not a super-human-artist-machine. Wiggle room is a blessing, I like estimating that into all my equations.

The Royal Gorge Bridge in Colorado is the scariest bridge I’ve ever crossed. Until recently it was the highest suspension bridge in the world. As you walk across you can look between the slats in the wood. It was scary as a kid and it’s still scary as an adult:)
