To the 40-something, fashion designer, entrepreneur, mom and wife in NYC,
Thank you for sharing your personal independence story with the 40:20 Vision. I like to think I’ve shared a subway ride with you or passed you on the street. I likely smiled at you as we Midwesterners are prone to do.
Although I’ve been brave enough to take the leap and move away from home, the fear of failure does not become any less strong. I will carry these words with me, especially the closing line – any sentence that contains self-confidence, fail, successful and happy – is definitely one worth remembering.
Thanks to your current perspective on personal independence, I can say “hey risks, let’s dance.”
