  1. Great tips Carrie! And you’re right, we sometimes let fear or our own Inner Critic overwhelm us with self-sabotaging thoughts. Everyone experiences fear or doubt at some point-particularly when we are attempting things outside our comfort zone-but the key is to push through it and do what you know you need to do to succeed.


  2. This is great! You hit the nail right on the head. Attitude is every thing in business. Attitude can be positive or negative. Positive attitude has the potential to create stampede customers and makes a business grow. It is a necessary ingredient for creating a goodwill or reputation. I love your work and please don’t stop.
