Perfect article in a couple of ways. For me it clarifies the value Lisa and I are benefitting from working with you as our biz coach. It clarifies we are not in fear mode (although I suspect we may have moments as we get closer to launching!) but rather moments of resistance. But that's why we hired you as our coach! It is clear that we needed guidance to create this business.

So I suppose the most helpful thing when any of us run into these roadblocks, hiccups or dips is to learn to ask for help! As you know, this certainly resonates personally when our family faced a personal crisis. What got us moving in the right direction is knowing we needed to ask for help and seeing it as a sign of our strength rather than one of weakness.

I'm forwarding this article off to a friend who I think will certainly benefit to discern the distinction between fear vs. resistance! Thanks for the insight in your article.

The original Accidental Pren-her

Your post brings brings home the message--we are all in this together. When we have a hiccup, find ourselves in a dip, or are floundering in the midst of a personal crisis, the answer is . . . reach out. Reach out to a trusted friend, a professional, a coach. Just reach out. That's sometimes the hardest step, isn't it Carol? Knowing that it's okay to reach out and not go it alone. That's why you and Lisa are so successful in your Family on the Edge start-up. That's why you are such an example to others.
