Hi Karen,

Rejection can be such a difficult thing, especially for anything we create. I love that you let your inner-knower guide your response. That is such wonderful advice.

Giving back to the community is so very important, and often overlooked by new and small businesses. It is a great reminder to us all. Thank you!


Hi Karen,
I really appreciated what you were saying about trying to find that balance between doing your creative work and getting critical feedback from people. As a fellow artist I know that challenge of not "taking it personally" when people are just speaking their thoughts. You expressed it well when talking about following your inner voice- that is the guiding light. The challenge, for me, is to remember to stop and listen to it, especially in those moments of self-doubt. But it's true- we know best if we are on or off the mark.
Thanks for sharing your experiences with us!


Hi Angela and Dori,
Thanks so much for your comments. It is very hard not to take negative comments personally but I'm getting better. Dori, you're right about taking the time to listen to our inner voices. Often when we're so busy, we forget to take a minute to find out what's going on with our inner selves.

Karen, that's one of the things I really liked hearing about your business - that you do pay attention to your inner knower (what I call your Inner Samurai). The inner knower is such a strong, powerful ally, when we pay attention to her.
