The market has changed. Your partners are your competiton. The market is beyond crowded. Hundreds of people could do what you do. It isn’t going to change back but the fear of not getting it right every time can’t stifle having a go and doing things differently.

Oh yeah, and whatever you do…do it amazingly well. Independent thought, creativity and well over and above the average. Not a lot to ask hey?
