Often fear stands between us and doing something worthwhile, be that starting a small business, taking on a role of leadership, pushing toward success in some form. Here are 4 steps to conquer that fear and take action.

4 Steps to Taking Action In Spite of Fear: Step Three

Part 3 in a 4-part blog series on taking action in spite of fear. I’d encourage you to read Part 1 and Part 2 first. Let’s talk about Stairway to Heaven, shall we? You guys know that I’m a big music nerd, and Led Zeppelin is absolutely and unequivocally the greatest band of all time. Don’t bother arguing with me.

I began BrianBandas.com with one key principle in mind above all else: GENEROSITY. It is my belief that whatever I give will come back to me in time. I have fallen deeply in love with the generosity marketplace, the economy of giving that has become so prevalent. What a fantastic cornerstone to doing business.
