Do you find yourself sitting on the sidelines as an information marketer?  Are you somewhat stymied by fear of failure? Well, I can honestly say that I would not be doing you a favor to say, “have no fear.” That would not be fair, because moving through fear to success is the only way to build your information marketing business.

You cannot avoid fear, you can only learn how to penetrate it and move through it in order to get to your success waiting on the other side.

Sitting On The Sidelines As An Information Marketer

“So we go to meetings and wait for someone else to take responsibility. We seek deniability before we seek impact. The four-letter word that every modern organization must fear is: hide.

Except now it’s not.”
