“I could never do that.” Almost every time we share the final photos of a project, we have someone make this comment. We start this episode by talking about it, and how people need to give themselves a little credit.
“I’ve never done that” sometimes becomes “I can’t do that,” but it shouldn’t be that way. Google, watch Youtube videos, read books, ask friends and neighbors who have experience. Learn what you need to learn so you can do what you want to do.
