Everyone with a laptop or a phone
is now a critic.
Yes, we’ve talked about this before
but it bears repeating
because it is the new reality
and there’s no escaping it.

I turn as much of it off as I can,
avoiding sites where critics hang out,
avoiding the internet completely
when I’m creating,
but I still can’t avoid all of the criticism.

Entrepreneurs, artists, any doers
need, what I call,
rhino skin.

As fashion designer
Randi Rahm
advises

“Learn to get a tough skin.
Criticism will always be there
and you have to believe in yourself
to navigate through that.

If you don’t have the real passion
for the business,
then do something else.
Learn about related fields
and explore other options
around what you love.”

Learn how to deal with criticism.
