My friend, Alex, looks at all my new project ideas because she sees my blind spots. The one she always points out is that I don’t give enough credit to my own experience and point-of-view. When you pitch a new project, you make a list of resources you have. Things like money, time, and connections probably make the list. Do you list your talents that make you the best person to get the job done? You should. You’re what matters most. You are your best asset. Thanks for the lesson, Alex!
