I believe that all posts can inspire someone else. Blog hops are a great way to find each other, so I therefore invite you to link up your blog posts every Tuesday here. The rules are simple: link up any blog post, there are no required themes, and it does not have to be about photography. It can be about anything. I would appreciate if you could link back to me, but you don’t have too. That’s it. Looking forward to seeing your posts this week! Oh and the link up is open all week. Also if you tweet your posts.. it would be great if you could use the hashtag #inspiredtuesday 🙂

I really need to take the above quote to heart. My first week of self-employment was very difficult. It was filled with self doubt.

I really want it to work. It is something that I want to do, and this is the first time in a long time I have done something that is just for me and not for others. But I am afraid of failure and disappointing my family and it haunts me on a daily basis.

There were a couple days last week where I had no work in my new consulting job. That really stressed me out, because there is no guarantee for work. Combine that with not booking any blog design jobs and I total stressed out. I felt like perhaps I made a big mistake. That perhaps I can not do this.

But I need to take a step back. I need to remember that it has only been a week. My name is not out there. That takes work, and time. I need to give myself time. I also need to be more confident. And I think I should be. I have gotten really positive feed back from those who I have design for. They even wrote very nice posts about me. Even more importantly, they are using my design, which they were under no obligation too, so I can’t be all that bad can I?

So this week I am focusing on the positive and working away. Working on getting my name out there. Working on being confident and pushing that self doubt aside.

What do you do to stay positive?
