What is the missing piece holding you back from being "a contender"?


I'm thinking of Actor Marlon Brando's line from "On the Waterfront": "I coulda been a contender". Today, I went on the web and saw a company that is BRILLIANTLY creating what I had intended to do with our website from the 90s. For us it was fear of never taking the risk, never being able to ask for funding, never connecting with other businesses in a networking way that would have helped, never being able to quit our day jobs for fear we just couldn't succeed. Maybe if we all discuss what it is that held us back or what's holding us back now, we'll have a better chance at being contenders!

    Paintdrips, How wonderful - working on your Masters in a subject you always dreamed about! Great Advise. I decided at 70 that this is the year I'd like to become rich and famous - or else just plain rich. Off we go!
