    I needed these today. It really put things into perspective for me. I am the master of worry and comparison. I fall prey to comparing my business to others that may be extroverted… or may just be ‘better’ in my opinion.

    Also, ‘the less you reveal, the more people can wonder’ spoke to me. It reminded me that it’s okay to be successful in silence. Not everything has to be public and loud!!

    Thanks for this, Gina! It was the kick in the pants I needed today!
