Elizabeth, I can relate. Conceptually I get it big time. I’m not afraid of numbers, but tend to get lost in calculations… or used to.
What I am finding is that by being at the same time confident and “gentle” with myself, I am able to gain comfort. Does that make sense? I’m going through John’s course again … becoming assiduous about ‘playing’ with the financial calculator … and less afraid to expose my ignorance!
I know that you and I are both capable, and that by ‘doing’ (going through the motions … fake it til you make it kind of stuff) we will have the result we are after.
Forget the garbage about what happened at school. We get to get on with it NOW!
There, I’ve exposed myself to all and sundried! Guys … I AM humble, see?
Email me if you are feeling lost … we can ‘follow the yellow brick road’ together, and I promise not to snort with impatience!
PS would HIGHLY recommend John’s course and bootcamp… and don’t let the wiz kids intimidate you (David A!)
