Understanding what motivates people is the key to selling yourself!
Building your brand
tells the world
Who you are
Getting to genuinely know the other person and who they are
To be or not to be, that is the question...
...Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.

We must take on this fight.
Many of us are frightened to do so.
But we have the leaders we need and the help we require
So we must set forth and face our troubles.
We have many tests before us.
We can overcome this seemingly unbeatable force.
We will be reborn. Better, Stronger, Faster.
We will reach our goal and capture our reward.
But we will not be finished. We are not free.
Our path from here forward must be clear and careful.
Each one of us will need to be strong and trust in the new system that is created.
It is our duty to share our new found knowledge and put it to use.
Success lies within each one of us.
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step" -Lao-tzu, chinese proverb
