    Hi Lexi,

    I truly appreciate this post, as i ponder the thought of being rejected quite often. Aside from everything that I aspire to do professionally, freelance writing is my highest goal. I am slowly putting together all that I have learned from you and some other inspirational, successful internet marketers, and I continue to engage in content writing for a internet company in order to develop not only my skills, but mostly my confidence as a writer.
