Now don't get me wrong, I was scared out of my mind! I was trying and saying anything I could to convince myself that it wasn't the right time to start. I was literally my own worse enemy because I was in self sabotage mode! Luckily it didn't work because I had great people around me who believed in my dream so they held me accountable for all that I had said I wanted to do and accomplish. They wouldn't let me slack & in turn I didn't let myself slack either. I had lots of highs and lows while growing my business but the lows would often weight on me. I struggled many times with remaining committed to my goals and dreams but I knew in my heart that I really wanted my dreams & goals to become reality more than I was afraid of it not happening/coming to life so I worked really hard on achieving greatness for myself & my business. Now you can find my items in 3 local stores within the Baltimore area and I am getting lots of private orders every week. I know I have so much more that I must do for my business but in this moment I know I am proud of myself because I pushed through it all & got to where I am today. It's the small steps that I took that lead to me achieving my big dreams.
So ask yourself are you living your dreams? What dreams are you putting away for tomorrow that you could be working on today? Does it make you smile every time you put your time, love, & energy into it? What is holding you back? What must you do in order to make your dreams your reality? These were some of the questions that I had to ask myself & that my friends were asking me when I was wavering back and forth on whether or not I should start my business. Once you have gotten your answers then create a plan of action list which will include all of the steps you must or should take to get things up and running and then get to work. It might take a while or not but once you start you will begin to feel the fire burning & wheels turning inside of you. It's at that moment that you will realize that your dreams have become bigger than your fears.
I want you all to remember this one that I have learned along my journey, at the end of the day there will be lots of things that you will have to go through in order to make things happen for yourself and your dreams but the only person in this world that can stop you for making anything happen is "YOU"! So my advice is to "get out of your on way and start making things happen!!!"
I'll see you all on the way to the top!!! Peace & Love Y'all!!! ;-)
