What would you love to share to encourage other women to start their own business?

Before I launched my brand – ByJoyAdenuga a negative mind-set played a huge part in delaying the entire launch. The fear of failure, the fear of rejection, what will people think? I personally didn’t even realise this as a major obstacle until I took on a business coach who spotted this immediately and worked closely with me to eliminate this negative mind-set. 

Your mind-set when doing business is often not talked about but highly important to success. Self-doubt can be a huge obstacle to success.
