“The most passionate people take hits the hardest…” If you’re in the world of music, healthcare, healing, then most likely you are extremely “passionate” =)
Barbara Corcoran talks about being passionate, caring, and taking hits in this video:
I love a good drum. I can strike it and slap it and knock on it, and it bounces right back.
The drum is resilient.
It doesn’t fight back. It puts up no resistance. In fact, the drum takes my hit and *amplifies* it.
The strikes that I cast upon the drum are not meant to be negative or hurtful. In that way, they are certainly different than the “hits” we often feel as business owners.
The hits we take as passionate business owners hurt.
I sent out 1,300 postcards the other day. I’m learning how to measure every single piece of marketing that we do for Music Therapy Ed, because I’d like the company to thrive after I die, retire, or put it up for sale. And I’ve got a master plan to make that happen.
