  1. Kilburn Hall:

    I never listen to the naysayers. I had an ex-wife like that. She and her people would always say, “No one will ever buy that, listen to that, want that.” Which probably explains why she is my ex-wife. It’s always seductive to hang around people who have failed at something and have them tell you how mean the business is — whatever your business is — and how unfair it is and how they got screwed by a bunch of people that didn’t care. It’s easy to find failures, and it’s easy to be seduced by failure. It’s much easier to think, “Well, everybody else has failed; no big deal if I do,” than to ignore that and plod on the other way. It takes love and passion for what you do to overcome that and to overcome the “Naysayers.”
