Building an Empire of Her Own: An Open Letter To Aspiring Entrepreneurs

Hello Beautiful,

Did you ever think that maybe the thing you’re scared of is exactly what you should do? As you embark on this roller-coaster ride, remember two things: Listen to your soul. Trust your intuition; it will rarely lead you astray. Despite what anyone else tells you, success doesn’t arise from playing it safe. Once you’ve realized your passions, you owe it to yourself to see it through. Prioritize and execute. This is not just a suggestion; it is often the missing puzzle piece which hurts a lot of businesswomen. Whether it is social media, reality television, retail therapy, or men, cut out all the distractions. It is important you understand that becoming an entrepreneur is far from a 9-5, it’s a 24/7.

Making mistakes, falling on your face, going broke and too many other struggles to name are all a part of the package deal you signed up for.  But don’t allow any of this to intimidate you. These obstacles are put in the way to test your strength. Dr. Miles Muroe said it best, “Every dream becomes a nightmare before it becomes a reality.” No matter what you go through, bare in mind that the struggle is part of your journey. And during those late nights, frustrated moments and days when you simply want to throw in the towel you’ve got to remember why you started to begin with. This is your passion.

The ugly side of business is a monster, but if you are disciplined, resilient and very consistent, it is very possible to experience the world you’ve always desired. Find new ways to stay inspired, connect with a mentor and give your ideas a chance. Following all the rules leaves a completed checklist. Following your heart achieves a completed you. Decide what’s more important.

Arm yourself with a killer smile and confidence. You are the key to your success but you will only get there if you truly believe it.

Start strong, stay strong, finish strong

Peace & Love,
