Hi SUN Forum Friends!
In the spirit of lifting each other up to keep our dreams alive for entrepreneurship, I would like to offer a little flash movie I created to inspire my blog readers.  It is called My Declaration of Independence, and after viewing it, I invite you to shout yours from the rooftop!  I hope you enjoy it.
Keep up all the good work, information sharing and emotional support you have going on in this virtual community.  You are not alone!
All the best,
-Pamhttp://www.escapefromcubiclenation.com</A>
Rich inspired me to update my profile with some pictures as part of the new and improved photo gallery function.  I encourage you to do the same - it was really fun choosing the images from all of my archives!

    Dear Pam,
    I just joined StartupNation and your video was the first thing I bumped into on the home page.  I love it so much.  It makes me feel like, YES! I`ve joined the community I`ve been looking for.  Thanks.

    Pam,
    Great video...and as someone who just recently stopped dreaming about working for myself and started doing it, I can`t recommend it highly enough.

    Hey, thanks everyone!
    I am so glad you enjoyed it.  I had fun making it.  It reminded me that being creative is a huge priority in my life, and I am so glad that I can do it as part of my business.  I am so glad to hear that you are being creative in your businesses too!
    Congrats Melissa on busting free!  I remember reading your posts from earlier in the year, when you were still on the fence.  Your skills as a financial AND wedding planner will make you truly unique in your line of business.  I wish you great success, fun and happiness.
    Mira:  Welcome to the community!  You will find great support and resources here.  If you haven`t hopped, skipped and jumped through the 10 Steps to Open for Business yet, please do, as they will really help you formulate a solid base for your business. 
    Rich:  Thanks!!!!!!  Especially for the exclamation points. 
    Enjoy your day.

    THANK YOU, PAM!! 
    This is so inspiring!! I came to work today feeling a bit down - you know one of those days when you hearing the little devil telling you, "It ain`t gonna happen!"  Thanks to this wonderful, beautiful, and inspiring movie!! I got the `to-do` list and am ready to go!
    (Ps. I am not an emotional person by all means, but the clip of the puppy  "I will screw up and keep going anyway" gave me teary eyes...)

    I am so glad Meitzi!!!
    That is so funny that you talk about the little devil whispering in your ear.  One of the driving thoughts behind the work that I am doing is to be the "other voice" whispering in people`s ear.  It can be so challenging to keep the faith going to work on a business when you get so many discouraging messages on a daily basis.  Many of them come from within "I don`t really have what it takes to make it, who am I kidding?" or "I will never make money at my business!" and some of them come from outside "Why would you ever choose to leave the stability of a well paying job?" (parents, bless their hearts, can be really good at these fear-producing comments)
    Unlike you, I cry at the drop of a hat - my husband laughs at me when I get all choked up at a Kodak commercial.  There ain`t nothing wrong with feeling girl - embrace your inner crybaby! 
    Have at it -- we can`t wait to hear how things develop with your business.

    Hi Pam,
    I would love to see your movie, as I am 2 seconds from calling it quits at my "Good 6 figure Corporate Job" wink, wink!
     
    Thanks,

    There shouldn`t be a space between the "u" and the "l" in the link, but the post window keeps wrapping the link and breaking it. Sorry.
