    Don't Be Sorry for Believing in Yourself
    by Terri Seymour

    2003 Terri Seymour

    Well folks, I have another message for you based on
    things I have experienced this week. This is also a
    lesson I have to keep reminding myself to live by.

    First of all, I was asked to leave a discussion group
    because the only messages I had posted for awhile
    were a couple of welcome messages in which I had
    invited the new members to visit MOE and utilize the
    free info and resources. This was a group that was
    99.9% chit chat which is great, but I could find no
    posts that were in need of my help or advice and I
    just didn't have the time to participate in the small

    I actually was thinking of unsubbing for this very
    reason when the owner did not allow my welcome
    messages and politely asked me to leave accusing
    me of this and that. I told her fine and then started
    doing something we should not do.

    I doubted myself and thought maybe I should do this
    or maybe I shouldn't do that. But only for a moment!
    A few years ago, this would have really upset me, but
    I have grown enough to say, "Ok, that is her opinion
    and she is allowed it, but I will not apologize for
    doing business the way I do because I believe in
    myself and in MOE!"

    The second incident was when I had received a nice
    email from a lady who subscribed to MOE and was
    interested in my services. Great, I answered her and
    asked her about her services and she replied saying
    she would like to meet with me that day. I then sent
    a time that I could meet and chat. She did not answer
    or confirm in either way, so it being on a weekend, I
    decided to spend the afternoon with my kids and take
    them swimming to the lake.

    I thought maybe she had something else to do and
    just couldn't meet after all. I thought maybe she too,
    was enjoying life.

    Well, it turns out she made the appointment, but didn't
    confirm with me so she waited for me. And of course,
    I did not show because to me you need two people to
    make and confirm an appointment. I sent my apologies,
    ( for the misunderstanding) to her but she still seemed

    I politely told her, there was no appointment confirmed
    and if I get a chance to spend time with my kids, I
    take it. I would not and will not apologize for that!
    I did, however, apologize for the misunderstanding,
    which is all that it was. It happens!

    We did talk it out and agreed to meet again. These
    things happen and it is all up to you how you react to
    the situation. You must not let inappropriate feelings
    interfere with good business practice.

    So, when these types of things happen to you, do not
    apologize for being you and running your business the
    way you feel is right. Definitely do apologize for the
    misunderstanding or whatever it was that happened, but
    do not apologize for something you did, if you did
    nothing wrong. There is a difference. Do not be sorry
    for believing in yourself.

    Treat people with respect and courtesy and stick to
    your guns! As long as you know you are doing what
    is right, do not let anyone cause you to doubt yourself
    or your integrity. Believe in yourself and keep doing
    what is right!!
