I like boating, when you let go of the last line to shore, you are on your own. You have to rely on your own skills to survive, you have to be self-reliant.
Small steps first, a sail around the little lake, a sail along the coast, across the Channel to France, into the Med, across the pond and so on…
For me, the same is true with running your own business. You’d be surprised how self-reliant you can be and how rewarding that is.
We all have it in us.
