"If you can't beat fear, do it scared."
I remember how heavy my breathing felt; my heart throbbing in my chest so hard my ribs were aching. I was exhausted and we hadn't even opened the doors yet. I felt my shoulders tighten and my fists clenched. I was sanding out back behind the dumpster - terrified. He looked at me, I looked at him.
"I'm really fucking scared" I said.
With eyes wide, "holy shit, me too!" he said.
Hearing that didn't help a damn bit - and so the lump of all lumps slammed right up into my throat.
There was not an ounce of comfort to be found.
He hugged me. "Let's slay this dragon" he said and we both went back inside and opened our first curbside restaurant.
Sometimes fear is apart of it. There's no overcoming it and when that kind of fear comes knocking and promises not to leave; you face it, you slay it, you do it scared! #growth #agency #marketingagency #atlantic #fear #digital #doitscared #modernmedia #ecommerce #business
