I’ve been getting some pretty great responses from this 2.0 project. It is very exciting to have all of this support. Thank you all very much for that.

You may not succeed – that’s just a cold reality – but there is no reason you shouldn’t do things.

- That you are willing to make the sacrifices required to pursue that goal.
- That you are ready to produce in that field on a regular basis.
Then you are already farther ahead than most people who only dream of doing something.
That being said, I know that it is hard. I’ve been doing this of over 30 years and it’s still hard! So today I am reposting one of our most popular LIVE Broadcasts. It’s about Imposter Syndrome.

Here’s the playlist for April:
