Running your own business requires your energy, courage, determination, your creativity and passion and gratitude and appreciation for those that believe in you.

It’s all heart and soul.

It took me ages to make this connection even though I poured myself into my craft and skills and websites. I put so much of myself into everything I created, and into helping my customers with all the problems they brought me.

When you do this, you know disappointments will follow.  Days your creations went to the trash or your sales were disappointing or you didn’t get important clients.  These are crushing when you put yourself out there every day.  Don’t let the disappointments lead you to fear.  Pick yourself up and try another option.

All these experiences are part of entrepreneurship, and they are what cause you growth and teach you humility, courage and focus.

Embrace the journey.
