    Hey Jennifer – Thanks so much for doing this podcast!

    It really spoke to me this morning as I was listening to it while getting ready. You’re exactly right I need to just start that BHS (Big Hard Scary) Thing!….(by the way I love this acronym)….

    I share all kinds of life skills you wished you learned in college speaking specifically to young career professionals that are new to the real life after college. And I’ve totally been stalling and scared to start writing my e-book/guide for “The Moving Guide – How to Minimize, Pack and Move Like A Pro”. But I know it’s what I need to do to start putting money in my bank account.

    Right now I’m in a mastermind focusing on goal setting and accomplishing those goals in 90 days. So I’m just going to DO IT! My BHS is writing my e-book that I can sell and the DDD is 90 days – Jan 15th.

    Thank you so much for the PUSH!

    I’m doing!
    Here’s my BHS
    STARTING! First steps for me are creating new art and updating my existing art/writing page. Deadline is tomorrow which is also my birthday!
    I’m letting paint dry on a new piece as I type. And I already did the last step on my fb page!

    Thank you so
    Much for the push!

    oh my goodness, this is soooo me! I have been paralyzed with overwhelm because of all the info that keeps rushing at me. I feel like I have to read everything. I’m in wayyyy too many groups. Paralyzed. I have been trying to remake my website to look more creative for the past 6 months and I’m stuck because it’s so hard. So, I commit to finishing that even if it isn’t perfect. And I’m going to get out of some groups. Thank you so much. This was right to my heart. And so needed. You blessed me.
