Here is the moral of this story. I heard that several BlogTalkRadio shows had apps. I assumed it probably cost more money than I could afford and I didn't even inquire about it. A few months later, when I came across a forum post from a guy who did apps, I decided to shoot him a quick email.
I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get an app AND how affordable it was. It was something I could do without breaking the bank. I had made an assumption about the difficulty and the cost and I was wrong.
What did asking the questions cost me? It wasn't about what I thought. It was about getting the actual information from the person who knew the answers. If it was a difficult or costly process, I could have just said "Thanks but no thanks." But it wasn't and now, I have an app!

When it comes to pursuing your dreams, no doesn't mean no. Ask any salesperson or nightclub romeo and they will tell you that no is part of the process. When someone declines their offer, what do they do? They move on to the next one.
No means no to that particular person at that particular time. It does not mean that everyone will say no. I'm a big American Idol fan (and it is great this year with Harry Connick Jr.). When contestants are eliminated, they are tearful and rightfully so because American Idol is a huge opportunity. However, a no from the judges or even from America for those who make it that far isn't necessarily the end of the story.
Clay Aiken came in second place and has had a much bigger career than the winner, Ruben Studdard. Jennifer Hudson made it to seventh place and then went on to win an Oscar, not to mention she's seen everywhere as the face of Weight Watchers. Chris Daughtry made it to fifth place but has had a substantial career with his own band, Daughtry, with several number one albums.
A no can take the wind out of you for a minute, but it gives you time to regroup and try again. No is temporary, it isn't final until you say it is.

What you need is a little therapy. And since this V-Day falls on a Friday, you don't have to worry about getting up early the next morning.
- Retail Therapy: Go out and buy something nice for yourself
- Spa Therapy: Get a mani/pedi or a massage or both!
- Cinematic Therapy: Go see or rent a movie (but probably not The Notebook)
- Choco Therapy: Indulge in a good gooey, decadent dessert!
- Hydro Therapy: Sink into a delicious bubble bath and then slather yourself with your favorite lotion or body cream.
- Floral Therapy: Buy yourself flowers, you deserve it!
- Gastro Therapy: Go out to a nice restaurant with a friend. You don't need to be coupled up to enjoy a good meal.
- Dance Therapy: Go to a club and get your groove on!
- Song Therapy: Go to a karaoke bar and sing your heart out (or stay at home with your favorite playlist)
- Girl Power Therapy: Get a group of the girls together and indulge in any of the above (of course, the hydro therapy could be awkward...)
