Still In Summer Mode Or Revving Up For Fall? I’ve Got You Covered

Everyone I’ve talked to lately is torn between diving into their business full bore (Fall) and chilling for one more week (it’s still August!)

So I have something for both of you.

For the let’s-get-this-thing-started crowd, I’ve created a “freebie” over and above my usual content to add to your collection. It’s a 4-part email course for independent consultants and freelancers to win more sweet-spot clients.

You can learn more about it here.  (and p.s. if you’re perfectly happy with your client win rate, you might want to share it with your friends who aren’t.)

If you’re still enjoying summer, here are some of my favorite quotes to keep your creative juices flowing…

“A pile of rocks ceases to be a rock when somebody contemplates it with the idea of a cathedral in mind.” – Antoine de St. Exupery

“Art is either plagiarism or revolution.” –Paul Gauguin

“A new idea is delicate. It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn; it can be stabbed to death by a quip and worried to death by a frown on the right man’s brow.” – Ovid

“I begin with an idea and then it becomes something else.” – Pablo Picasso

“The man with a new idea is a crank—until the idea succeeds.” – Mark Twain

“Artists don’t make objects. Artists make mythologies.” –Anish Kapoor

“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” -Ansel Adams

“A mediocre idea that generates enthusiasm will go further than a great idea that inspires no one.” – Mary Kay Ash

“From a little spark may burst a flame.” –Dante Alighieri

“A powerful idea communicates some of his strength to him (sic) who challenges it.” –Marcel Proust

“There is no time for cut-and-dried monotony. There is time for work. And time for love. That leaves no other time!” –Coco Chanel

“Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you’ll be able to see farther.” –J.P. Morgan

“Good writing excites me and makes life worth living.” –Harold Pinter

“The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty ‘yes’ to your adventure.” –Joseph Campbell

“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” -Anne Frank

Enjoy this glorious last week of summer—I’ll be back with my usual posts in September!

p.s. Like what you see here? Head on up to that orange bar to sign up pronto and I’ll deliver my weekly insights directly to your in-box.


  • Love the quotes Rochelle.
    I’ll be sharing the course with friends not members (yet) of our Gotham tribe who should’ve seen your great (and generous) offer this morning.
    Everyone who practices solo (or small practice) benefits from the four-part program Rochelle offers.

    Thank you Corey–I do believe a couple of Gothamites have joined up for the course!
