Through our my journey of becoming a business owner many people have offered me advice. It didn't matter to them if they had ever owned a business or not. It seemed everyone had a piece of advice for me. I received everything from " run away" to " embrace your journey."
As much as I loved hearing peoples positive advice. There was also the rush of negative advice or down right hurtful things people said. But we will leave that for another day and another story...
There was one piece of advice that for me was game changing advice. It came from one of the amazing women I know who has herself built a Million dollar company. She randomly emailed me and said " If you are going to do this then truly do it. Don't play around with it. Don't call yourself a CEO if you're not going to do the job. Build the company and put the real work in. I know you can do this and I know you will be success but babe you have to do the damn thing."
She was right, I didn't see just how right she was back then but now. Now I know that that piece of advice was the game changer for me. Even though it took me a while to actually understand what she meant fully.
So to all of my new or future business owners. Who are sitting there right now trying to decide what to do and how to do it. To those who have started but feel like they have hit a brick wall. " If you want it then go and get it. There is nothing stopping you but you!" Is the best advice I know of that I wish to give you today. Don't fear it, don't stop being who you are or who you want to be. Just do the dang thing and never give up.
