A Podcast Interview, but First Defeat

I'm all excited to post this podcast interview I did last week with Phoenix Business RadioX.

It turned out well. Of course I want you to hear it.

But then I say, "Why do I only post my accomplishments?"

Sometimes I go a week or two without posting. Those are the times I'm grinding away and dealing with a disappointment.

Should I post those too? Should any of us post those moments?

Why don't we? They're more relatable.

So a few nights ago I had a gig at Galvanize, an absolutely beautiful cooperative workspace in Phoenix.

22 people signed up via Meetup.com. 9 showed up. Grrr...

The presentation covered the self-discovery side of building a business.

Everyone in the class was engaged. They were taking notes and snapping photos. All good, right? Then the feedback came.

Some people really liked it, a bunch were in the middle, and few simply dismissed it.

Some of the feedback claimed there wasn't enough discussion. One person even said I wasn't charismatic.


"How could they do this to me?" I whisper-shouted as I got into my car. "I put my all into this!"

But you know what? Who cares when my feelings get hurt? This is the reality of what I signed up for and it's not always going to be pleasant.

I tried to talk myself into believing it wasn't my fault, but I finally conceded and accepted that it just didn't hit for everyone.

What else can I do except take the feedback and get better?

So, with that beings stated, let's get to the really cool interview I did with Phoenix Business RadioX.

Things continue to move forward, despite, you know, my lack of charisma.

Thank you. I'll post again when something major happens. Ha. Just playing.
