I really had to overcome financial fears. When I started out my children were 1.5 and 3. I was working full time and had no employees. I didn't hire my first employee until the summer of 2021 and didn't experience growth until this year. It took 3 years of hard work, late nights, and a lot of sacrifices to get my business off the ground. But, I am proud to say that it is now thriving! It was totally worth all the hard work and dedication in the end. I'm so glad I took the plunge and followed my dreams of owning a business. Now, I can pass on this knowledge to other aspiring entrepreneurs! Advice for Women Entrepreneurs:
The entrepreneurship road is long and full of challenges but if you focus on your goal, learning, and embracing failure it's the most rewarding path. With that being said, don't forget to take breaks and give yourself time to reflect and appreciate your progress. You may not be where you want to be yet but it's important to recognize the milestones along the way!
