Three Major Lessons from Writing the Reality Blog — and How They Apply to Your Business

“You’ve got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.” — Ray Bradbury

Two years ago, I could barely believe I’d landed this Reality Blogger gig.

Though I couldn’t take much time to dwell on it. Because when I’d sit down to write, it would take me a full day to turn out one of these, if not more!

Today, it’s hard to believe it’s time for me to hand the Reality Blog off to someone else…

Plus, I’m writing these in just a couple of hours now.

Obviously, a bit has changed.

It’s been an amazing ride. One thing is for sure: so much of what I’ve done over the past couple of years wouldn’t have happened without you.

Having you to report to helped keep me on the straight and narrow. It helped me decide what to write about, and it helped keep me pushing forward with my goals when I’d start falling behind.

Your feedback has been helpful, too. I truly appreciate all the comments, thoughts, and ideas about the Reality Blog that many of you have shared.

So thank you for that, and for taking this journey with me. I hope you’ve found it enjoyable, or at the very least, educational.

Now, before I turn the reins over to our new Reality Blogger, Tracy Wilson, I’d like to share a few of the big, recurring thoughts/lessons/realizations I’ve had since I started.

  • Thank you Candace,
    I’m no longer a ‘spring chicken’ like you and all I ever wanted to do was earn a living from my writing. My main problem has always been self doubt, it still is and probably will be till I find my first paying client. But at least by the end of 2017 I learned that I CAN do this. I still suffer from self doubt, but I have a wonderful accountability partner now so can always go to her with it, as she knows she can come to me.
    So for me, it was learning and believing that I will succeed.

    • That’s great, Hilary. Self-doubt is a huge barrier – the fact that you know how to recognize it and fight it is huge. Best, Candice

  • Congratulations on a great run, Candice. You’ve clearly learned a lot, and I’ll bet your post barely scratched the surface! All the best going forward.
