Every week I get together with three other friends who are also creative small business owners like myself. Each week I walk away more inspired and encouraged than the last. These women are amazing.

A few weeks ago one of them told me this quote from Jon Acuff, “Don’t compare your beginning to someones else’s middle.” Those words really hit home for me. Comparing yourself to others is a dangerous trap that can really leave you frustrated and discouraged. I to easily find myself looking at other blogs or small businesses and wonder how they got to be so successful and then ask myself why I am not where they are. When in reality they have probably been working at it longer and who knows what else they had to do to get where they are. I’m are still at the beginning of my entrepreneur journey. I have a lot of growing and work to do.

So as I prepare to go to ALT Summit in just one week, I thought it would be a helpful reminder to have this quote on my phone (nicely designed of course). So that as I talk to all the amazing, creative people I can remember not to get caught up in comparing myself, but instead enjoy their company and learn what I can from them, because after all they have been at this a lot longer than I have.

I hope this quote is encouraging to you too!

    THANK YOU — I could use all the inspirational messages I can get this week!

    I hope you have a blast at Alt. I had to give up my ticket this year but hopefully I'll make it to the next one.

    Thank you so much for the inspirational thought! I know exactly how you feel – I am at the very beginning of my career, and I am constantly comparing myself to more-seasoned designers, and it's very frustrating! It's difficult sometimes to remember that you have plenty of time to grow and learn new things. It's comforting to know that others feel the same!

    It's well known that researchers are constantly forging new frontiers in medical, biomedical and pharmaceutical fields. It is equally important that they find better and faster ways to translate laboratory research into clinical trials for patients, to bring these technologies to clinics and hospitals worldwide, so they can begin saving lives and helping people right away.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
