“I’ll be very frank. I really considered going back to-to corporate many, many times the first three years for sure. I mean, it was just so, it’s a lonely road. It’s a very lonely road. Looking back now, of course, it’s comfortable looking back now. But while I was there, I did take on any clients. Now we don’t do that anymore. I’m confident now that you know what I know how to bring in new business. I can say no to clients. But back then, the first two to three years, the toughest was saying no to a prospective client because I needed to pay the bills. Super hard to do.“

Leading motivation and procrastination expert Dr. Piers Steel on why we procrastinate, the effective way to set goals, and more [Article]:
“There’s this idea of goal choice versus goal striving. The motivations that get you to choose a goal aren’t the same as the ones that get you to strive toward it. You could want something and want it quite badly, and still find it difficult to find the motivation to do it. Entrepreneurs tend to be more confident, than the every day [person]. But they find the most confident entrepreneurs tend to be the least successful. You have to have confidence, but also respect for the competition. I can do this, but it won’t be easy. Balancing those two things works really well.“

Advance Capital Management’s Manager of Investor Education and Kiplinger contributor Jacob Schroeder shares 7 habits to improve your financial writing [Article]:
“Contrary to the tortured-genius myth, most famous writers were highly attentive to their productivity, using ‘tools’ that we associate with athletes and business leaders. They set daily goals. They followed meticulous schedules. They ferociously shielded themselves from distraction. All to perform at their best. Of course, this is not limited to the literary world. Most successful financial writers keep their own set of habits. One could argue habits are even more important for financial writers as they grapple with the added pressure to simplify complex topics and help people secure their futures.“
