Fear. Anxiety. Poor decision making. Like Drake, I felt all the feelings (and these specifically) when I launched my goal setting planner and I didn’t meet my sales goals. Like Drake, I expected to make “more money bitches!” That, however, did not happen, as I explain here, and I almost self sabotaged my own success. Fortunately, I stopped my saboteur (me!) dead in her tracks – and you can too. Here is tried and true tested advice on overcoming self sabotage.

I sold 4 books. FOUR! Commence Self Sabotage Success Sequence.
