So, here’s the biggest question for this episode?  What did you think of Scott’s singing?  Yeah, not that great, and that is why (thankfully) the singing lasts for only a few seconds.

What did we learn from this episode:

  • Compact discs are not dead yet, and work great when you’re in a pinch to get your media heard.
  • Asking for feedback can be unnerving, especially when it comes from close friends and family.  But it is helpful.
  • Jennifer, aka JennySue Makeup is now known as “The Reluctant Co-Host”.  However, she is sponsoring this episode, which is much appreciated.  Stop by her shop page here and “Shop her Look“.
  • Starting a new venture can be scary at times.  Here are two ways to soften that fear.
    • First, picture yourself stuck in a traffic jam on the freeway, but instead of getting frustrated, think of yourself in the fastest moving lane.  Sure, you’re going way below the speed limit, but those poor souls in the lane next to you aren’t even budging.
    • Second, add this quote you wherever you stash favorite quotes.  “Doubt, of whatever kind, can be ended by action alone. – Thomas Carlyle | Click to Tweet
  • “Don’t take your feelings out on your employees” as Jack quoted from what he read about in the book, “Who Was Steve Jobs?
  • It goes without saying, but Moms are super important.  Jennifer is a fantastic mom to our three children.  In fact, many of her blog posts, such as this one are inspired by her kids.  Also, Scott’s mom, an English literature major, helped teach Scott lessons growing up through literary works.  A favorite poem his mom taught him is, “The Road Not Taken” by American poet, Robert Frost.  This is your homework assignment for this week, as Scott will dive deeper on this poem in the next episode.

Thanks for Listening!
