Expand your comfort zone

Look, the first time you send a pitch and skip the resume, you might feel some feelings.

Vulnerability, a little fear, or a dose of worry.

That’s the back part of your brain wanting you to “be like everyone else.”

But “everyone else” is stuck and miserable with the resume approach!

The more you pitch, the more you expand your comfort zone.

And with that comes thrill, empowerment, fun, and creative juice.

Lean forward!
