Behind Every Successful Woman...
Honestly, being an entrepreneur and a woman at the same time is challenging. Everyday it’s a different feeling, a different emotion and a TOTALLY different day than the last. Somedays are wins and some days are losses. But in each loss, I find something special…something worth fighting for each day. It’s hard to explain exactly. I want to quit, but then that little voice is screaming “NOOOOOOOOOOO…you’ve come so far…don’t give up!” Like telling me people need my help/products.
I knew even when I was a little girl that my passion and purpose was to help people. I just didn’t know how exactly to go about it. I started to make food for people and they really enjoyed it. I remember making chocolate soufflés and my friend Mat would literally lick his plate. I was on to something. I did enjoy cooking, but didn’t want to work in a kitchen as a cook or chef. I started making my own body and cleaning products. I enjoyed it sooo much that even when I was dead tired and I knew I had to make laundry detergent if I wanted to get my laundry done. After getting all the ingredients together and seeing the finished product, I would be revived and ALMOST ready to do laundry…haha!
There’s a special feeling in seeing your work from start to finish. Almost like ‘did I make this?!’ It’s such a proud moment and that’s when all the failures and f*ck ups melt away.
Being an entrepreneur is rewarding...being a WOMAN entrepreneur is a BLESSING! You get to do what you love and step out of your comfort zone at the same time. HUGE growth! I encourage people to work for themselves on the side as a second job. Find what you love to do because the world probably needs it.
