Thanks guys

It was really liberating to just say everything out loud. I often get worried about admitting burnout and periods of business-ruts but I think it's good to know that everyone goes through this and that there's almost always a light at the end of the tunnel.

Thanks for sharing, Grace. It's a definate part of being a creative entrepreneur. We get a creative burst of energy- then have to implement all those great ideas. Then we're pooped! Good tips!
