It is hard to believe that 5 years ago this month I gave up on trying to work for someone else and started my own business. At that point, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. There is no amount of reading or preparation that you can do that would prepare you for the amount of work, sleepless nights and stress of owning a business.
You hear it from pretty much every business owner you talk to but something inside you still says, " just do it! It will be worth it!" Well, I am one of those business owners that warns everyone about the stress of starting and operating your own business and you know what, it's so worth it!
In the past 5 years, I have had the opportunity to learn so much about myself as a person, about business, about other people's business and so much more! I have grown to be a strong businesswoman who isn't afraid to fight for what I believe in. I have met the most amazing, strong, inspiring people imaginable and have had the opportunity to see people at their weakest and strongest. I have seen businesses fail and I have seen businesses grow.
64 clients - that is how many businesses I have worked with over the past 5 years! That is 64 incredible companies that are trying to make their mark on the world and entrusted me to help them on their journey.
Without you, I would not be here today. So thank you!
It has been an awesome ride and I am so glad that I get to wake up in the morning (sometimes change out of my pajamas) and go help start-ups and entrepreneurs rock it at what they believe in most.
Keep up the great work, keep trying and remember... it's oh so worth it!
Cheers to the years to come!
