“Take chances; make mistakes. That’s how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage.”– Mary Tyler Moore
“Pain nourishes your courage.” If you can take the heat, stay in the kitchen.
Sounds like a good idea to me! As we’re finding out during #metoo, being an actress or comedienne in show biz in the ’60s was pretty tough. The norm was incredible.
But Moore’s sentiment that we must push ourselves outside our comfort zone by taking chances and by screwing up, is a good one. Nobody wants to screw up. But the more you screw up, the more you (hopefully) learn.
Lessons come from large mistakes and small. Even a big win is filled with places for improvement. So the important thing is to keep going – keep learning. Even if you’re winning.
Courage: An Interfanatic Quality
It takes courage to be in business. It takes more courage to be in business for yourself. We celebrate the big and small businesses we work with as filled with courageous individuals.
It’s easy to look at corporate behemoths and forget that they were once one or two people who had an idea, and got to work on it. Every big business was once, following the story down some path, a small business.
You have to start somewhere. You just have to start.
Life Impact Supplements – A Market Requiring Courage for any Business
Some years ago we helped Glenn Bernstein with his Virimm project. Virimm is a nutritional supplement that eases symptoms and flat-out prevents some viral infections (like the common cold, a coronavirus) in many people. But if you’re the one making a nutritional supplement, you can’t make any claims, according to strictly controlled advertising law.
Bernstein has a great product, but it takes courage to take on the liability with all of the imposed limitations.
It is a fun and exciting project. It’s the kind of project that takes tremendous courage to undertake. And Glenn did it.
I haven’t heard if it’s a successful treatment for COVID-19, but from what I understand it almost certainly would ease symptoms in most people.
“Life Impact Supplements had the kind of project that takes tremendous courage to undertake.”
It’s a joy to work with people willing to take a risk – to hang it out there and see what works. Digital marketing requires tremendous experimentation and diligence. It’s not exactly “The Right Stuff” kind of courage, but when you put everything into your business, you need it to work.
We treat every project we work on as if it were our own. Because it is.
