Have I had failures? Um, yeah. I've been rejected hundreds of times. I've sent hundredssss of pitches to brands, to tourism boards, to companies. I've sent my resume to hundresss of jobs, applications, freelance gigs. I've spent a countless amount of hours writing, creating, content, promoting without any foreseeable progress.
Have I had successes? Hell yeah! I've earned thousands of dollars from my blog. I did some work for a client in my Airbnb in Cancun after a longgg day swimming uunderground cenotes; that feels like success to me. I began blogging + social media coaching as a direct result of reader interest.
But the thing is, any success I had took time, effort, consistency, & a million other moving parts. Any success came with a failure or two (or 300).
