If you are a small business owner, you know by first hand experience that entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. Many days are just HARD because every buck stops with you. You learn to be a jack of all trades dabbling in fields such as marketing, office management, accounting, customer service and not to mention your own niche trade that got you in this place to begin with. Some days you feel on top of the world, marveling at the fact that you’ve gotten as far as you have. Other days you may want to curl up in a ball and pretend you’re in a dream. But don’t be fooled… You’d rather be nowhere else and doing nothing else.
To the future entrepreneur: don’t let fear keep you from pursuing your dreams. You will have good days, and you will have bad days. Don’t let the fear of those bad days keep you down. Rather, let them empower you to continue to grow and progress to a greater place. Let it motivate you to know that you are being molded and cast into a more refined and fulfilled state of being. After all “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” What are you waiting for?
