how to get unstuckDo you catch yourself self-sabotaging? I know it can be a hard thing to identify in ourselves, but I find it comes up a lot with my clients as they navigate the book process. We make excuses, we only see the hardship, we look at the mountain in front of us, and we back the eff out.

I’ve certainly done it to myself in areas of my business. I don’t think anyone is immune.
