How To Profit from your Narrative Art

Episode 33–Ignacio

Failure Club — Face Your Fear

Goal: I want to open a haberdauchery with my own clothing line.

“To have the vest with my label on it, that will be a huge step to take the business to a whole new other level.”

If you are going to make money. You have to own your own things.

“Who are you to tell me what I’m doing?”

Critiques from others are always hard to take. Advice from others can be seen as threatening. Sometimes we just don’t know how to handle support…or rejection…one of the best things we can do is to take the advice and decide whether or not we can learn from it or if we need to reject it. Consider the source.

“Do these people want to help me?”
“If I follow the advice will I be compromising my goals?”
“What can I learn from what was said?”

You will be able to decide your next steps based on feedback.

“I’m not really as prepared as I thought I was.”

Although the immediate needs are scary, Ignacio went on with his dream. It feels like throwing caution to the wind. To be honest, I’ve never been very good at doing that. But look what happened. Ignacio went ahead and moved forward on his goal, and now he is moving toward the next phase.

No one is prepared to be great. We become great as we move forward.

“You should be able to double your money.”

I like watching Ignacio, because I am not always the best with money. I find it amazing that you can literally double your money. You work to create a product. You invest time, energy and money into producing a product, and then you can reap the benefits of earning your money back and then some by selling it. It doesn’t seem like it should work, but it does. Crazy capitalism.
