Have you ever felt like giving up on your business? Throwing in the towel on your dreams? Maybe you had some really frustrating times or you had a BIG failure and wondered if you were cut out for this entrepreneur stuff?
I get it! Despite what some may think, being in business for yourself is HARD! It takes a deep, unwavering belief in yourself, a TON of personal growth, grit, tenacity, stick-to-it-iveness, courage, boldness, patience and confidence!
I just finished listening to Marie Forleo’s book, Everything is Figureoutable, and was SOOO inspired by her! If you don’t know who Marie is, go look her up! She is one of the top women entrepreneurs who was named by Oprah as a thought leader for the next generation. She has a show called Marie TV, has been on Oprah, and has millions of views on her YouTube videos. Anywho, in her book, she said it took her 7 years to make a profit in her business. SEVEN! Meanwhile she held down jobs as a bartender, dancer and dance instructor, and a whole slew of other things. BUT, she NEVER gave up!
She also mentioned it took Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat, Pray, Love, I’m sure you’ve heard of it??) TWENTY years before she made money on her writing! That’s right, TWENTY!! OMG!
Sooooo, I want to encourage you to STICK WITH IT! I hear so many women complain they haven’t made money and want to give up after a couple of months, that’s nothing! Keep….going!! You CAN do it!! I BELIEVE IN YOUUUUUU!!!
