All of the students I work with have have that feeling of, am I doing enough it's going to be enough? And there are two parts of overcoming that. The first part is to actually have a system that you know, you're g...

oing to get done what needs to be done, and you have a way of managing those tasks, kind of lining them up in prioritizing them and that's what we're going to do today, but the second part of it is also celebrating and acknowledging what you got done and feeling good about it, no matter what it was and knowing it's, okay, there'll be another work session, and there'll be another time to do it. And this is what I got done. Because if you don't celebrate that, you can fall into the spiral of de motivations were going to talk about that, too.

A really great class. As a newer creative business owner I have had trouble with always feeling like no matter what I worked on it wasn't the right thing or it wasn't enough. I think the advice in this class will help me feel better about my accomplishments and keep me focused on the things that will help my business. Thanks!

I loved it! start to finish really packed full of sensible easy to follow advice - great workbook and extra materials. Highly recommended. Tara does continually mention STARSHIP and MAPPING with out any background info on these topics which began to niggle at me but guess the answers are on her website. This was my first full class after purchasing my Creator Pass and it gets a 10/10
