Company of One
I’ve always been fairly comfortable with holding my own, and strong in determination to present myself in the right light. Creating the same shell for my professional world has been more challenging. I have to be my best cheerleader through small hiccups and big speed bumps, because it’s up to me how I handle each issue. Let’s just say, there’s been lot of deep breaths and a few quiet (or loud) tears. It’s not about hiding them from others, but rallying on my own to push past. The strength to do so comes from within as an entrepreneur. Although I appreciate all my family and friends cheering me on- it’s different. This one’s on me, because it’s my journey and there’s nothing that keeps me down for long because of my hard work and perseverance.
Although I’ve grown a tough skin since beginning my business, it’s still hurts when the hits strike. That’s why being able to separate the supporters and haters has helped me to grow my one-woman business. With hate only creating negativity where I don’t need it, I choose to only surround myself with positivity. It might seem naïve of me to believe in rainbows and sunshine, but I also think that’s what separates me from my competition. So, as the enviable hits come, I’ll fight them with love and positive energy.
To put it simply, I don't believe in giving up, which is my biggest success. With six months under my belt- my financials are slowly building, my brand awareness is heightened and my personal triumphs are growing.
