  1. “ I once pooped my pants at work and hid

    my underwear inside a box that got shipped to a customer ”
  2. “ My manager doesn’t know I practice breakdancing in our

    conference room before anyone shows up for work ”
  3. I have felt overwhelmed on a daily basis. It’s pretty

    daunting starting out. CONFESSION #1
  4. CONFESSION #2 I really need to stop comparing myself to

    other people. We’ve all been there.
  5. CONFESSION #3 Blank pages are the most daunting thing I

    can think of. Where’s my creative genie?
  6. CONFESSION #4 I should have stuck to my guns a

    lot more. Have faith in yourself.
