Isn’t it interesting that I would procrastinate a full three days when it comes to sending out an email full of raving testimonials, but it’s no problem hitting send when it’s something self-deprecating, especially when it’s funny?
That’s the thing about achievement, you see. It challenges your self-belief in a way that failure or stagnation doesn’t. Because when you achieve something and your self-worth hasn’t quite caught up, there’s a part of you that feels like you’re a fraud, a con artist just about to be found out.
It’s good to acknowledge it. And it’s better to send out that email full of testimonials anyway.
Here are mine:
“I’ve read scores of books about freelance writing, but none have been as jam packed with actionable strategies to help me consistently increase my income as this book…”
– Leslie Patrick
“I’ve been freelancing for more than 20 years… So I was surprised at how many of the tangible, actionable nuggets of advice in Mridu Khullar Relph’s guide to making a grand more a month were things I hadn’t considered, or hadn’t considered from her angle.”
– Tom Bentley
“Mridu packs more value and solid, practicable ideas into one chapter than most authors do in an entire book.”
– Emily McIntyre
“… it has completely changed the way I think about my work as a freelance writer. It’s full of plenty of useful information and tips, but most importantly it has given me inspiration and energy to find ways to make my work more sustainable.”
“I don’t know of any writer who delivers savvy freelance advice in as engaging a voice as Mridu Khullar Relph.”
– Rebecca L Weber
