When I read this in a blog post from Jasmine Star, I knew I had to keep it tucked away somewhere.  Her advice for one of her followers is so truthful and impactful. The message may help someone out there.

"You said “there is a little fire inside me waiting to come out, but first I need clients” but I strongly disagree.  If your fire is dependent on clients, you’re in trouble.  I believe your fire is in YOU, in your work.  You’ll only get clients if you build your fire alone…and attract them to it.  The fire must grow before you’ll get clients.  So what does this mean?  DO THE WORK.  Show up.  Hustle.  Practice. Experiment.  Create.  Just shoot so darn much you thinkdreameatbreathe it.  That’s how you build your fire."
