Rebecca Renner on 6-months of freelance writing

I think the first 2 paragraphs open this up on the right tone:

I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but all of my life, people told me it wasn’t a feasible career.

Man, I love proving people wrong.

It does take some of that boldness to run your own business. If you’re not willing to dig in to the much harder work of building something from nothing, then you’re not cut out for this whole running a business thing.

Another good note that she makes:

Success is built on a hefty pile of failure, an iceberg of failure, if you will.

So so much failure happens. Are you going to put in your 3-years? 3-years of failure looking at you until you suddenly get lucky and work something truly stellar out?
