Starting From Where You Are with What You Already Have (Shin Kicking Mondays)

Shout out to my fellow brave bear Mark Bottemiller for raising the question I respond to in this episode of Shin Kicking Mondays:

I’m really not even sure what to ask. I just can’t seem to get any damn traction. I know what I need to do (at least some of it) but I’m having a hell of a time getting it done. Part of it is cost/risk – since I’m building a physical product, I have to buy raw materials and stuff – but it seems to run deeper than that. Of course I’m scared/nervous whatever – but I also realize that this new venture has some real possibility to get me doing what I really want to be doing. Anyway – just posting this has lent some clarity – but I’d love to hear your take… (hm, is there even a question in there anywhere?!?)
