Hey, this is a genuine chronicle of events as they unfold as I build a small business. Short, personal, and concise letter. Send to share my fears, failures, and success. No hidden agenda, just plain old sharing.
I’m changing a number of things in the way I work.
Everything in my body is telling me to protect my pride, stop showing the fear.
But I am afraid.
I’ve made so many mistakes in these past seven years as I learn to build a sustainable business. I’m learning how not to make some more. But to learn it’s not a guarantee I won’t make any.
I’ve stopped or moved out of a handful of projects sometimes at a too much personal expense. Emotionally and financially. Seven partnership that didn’t work, for most of them lack of appropriate skill, where a determining factor.
But from today onward I promise myself to try. In the face of failure, loss, and hurt.
—Joel Mwakasege, Founder, Be yourself
Successful creative people don’t measure their lives, based on other people’s standards. They measure their lives on their own terms. I didn’t know then that this was the key factor that distinguishes, satisfying creative life from a miserable one. Now that I know, I'll try to do the same as I do this work.
I'll occasionally skip a day or two to send this letter, especially on the weekends. But the commitment is to send it daily, with this comes the archives from the past letters. Access them inside as you join.
The main aim of this letter is to share my fears as I build a business which has taken me 7 years of preparation. Although everything in my body is telling me to protect my pride, stop showing the fear. But I am afraid.
No hoops, tricks, or hidden links. Anytime when you'll feel the letter need to stop. The link will always be available at the end of each letter. Click the link and the emails stop.
If it occurs you have got another email you want to receive this letter with. The option to change your current email to the new email will always be present at the end of each email.
There is a method available, to share the letter. To help the letter reach more people alike. But to also give you a way to have a friend or a family member become apart of it.
I won't share, trade, or sell your email to anyone. I won't send weird things either, I respect your attention too much to do something of the like.
