Motivation Monday: Beauty, Brains & Business

No comments

Motivation & Thankfulness!

Often times, when we are working on our craft and trying to build a brand that’s recognizable by the masses, you don’t often know, if what you’re doing is being perceived or received well, the unknown is a risk, and it can feel frightening all alone. Being new to entrepreneurship is scary and you can become overwhelmed with feelings of doubt and the pressures to succeed and overcome alone can make you want to give up, remain fearful, and discouraged. However, in those very same emotions, you have to remind yourself the very reason why you started, to keep you motivated and inspired.

I am very excited about the different relationships that I have developed and the vast amounts of experience and knowledge that I’m getting from others’ input from various women, who are helping me to cultivate myself into being an entrepreneur. Therefore, I am extremely humbled and happy to make you all aware of a very great resource and support system that has helped me develop and to become more knowledgeable, as I continue to grow in this journey of entrepreneurship.
