'When it comes to making that leap, a lot of it is just thinking through the worst case scenario.' -@lkr Click To Tweet 'We sometimes make things more dramatic in our heads out of fear—and it's just not realistic.' -@lkr Click To Tweet 'A big motivation for me in starting my own business was having the freedom over my time.' -@lkr Click To Tweet 'Your personal brand is really something that can't be taken away from you.' -@lkr Click To Tweet 'Ask: Are we building something that our customers find valuable enough to pay for? Are we earning our keep?' -@lkr Click To Tweet 'When you're in that struggle mode and none of the options feel good, it's actually best to just let it lie.' -@lkr Click To Tweet Post links to your site twice as often and you'll see higher traffic because you give more opportunity to click. @lkr Click To Tweet 'You created this amazing library of content. Don't just send it out once.' -@lkr Click To Tweet 'Show people what you do. No one is following you unless they want to hear about your business.' -@lkr Click To Tweet 'You can go a lot further than you think you can in being promotional when people are asking to hear from you.' -@lkr Click To Tweet
