Good things just happen when you face your fears.” - Aaron de Simone, I Heart Luxe

98% of entrepreneurs identified the inability or unwillingness to take risks as the greatest barrier to success.

What makes us unable or unwilling to take risks? Often our fears. Successful creatives are not fearless. Successful creatives have simply honed their ability to recognize their fears, acknowledge them, and use them to take their ventures to the next level.

Join us on Twitter Wednesday December 10th at 9AM PT/12PM ET for our weekly #AltChat and share how you face your fears and get tips from others.

Tips for Harnessing the Power of Fear


Eden Hensley

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
