Kristin Marquet: I suggest starting with a clear understanding of your 'why.' Knowing why you're embarking on this journey will be your anchor through the ups and downs. It's essential to remain flexible and open to learning, but your underlying purpose should guide your decisions and keep you motivated. And remember, every entrepreneur's path is filled with challenges, but those challenges forge your resilience and shape your success story.
