In my last entry, I detailed the story of fighting a bull shark during my family’s recent vacation. That story made me remember another fishing trip I took with my dad. As we set out for our spot, deep in the Atlantic Ocean, I remember hearing a lot of captains’ chatter on the radio. Because the water was choppy, they said we wouldn’t catch any fish. Our captain calmly reassured us that anytime you leave the shore, there’s lots of noise. The same is true in your businesses. When you set out to do something new, there’s always going to be a chorus of naysayers. Join me as I look at how to succeed despite the noise.
