What would you love to share with other women to encourage them to start their own business?
No-one else will ever quite get your dream or vision the way you do, if you believe then that’s enough. If you try to make everyone else believe before you make your move you will still be standing in the same space years later. Turn your dream into a vision and start the planning to bring it to life, ask people for help on the way, but choose wisely – those that can truly help you and not just because you are looking for more validation. You don’t need to have the 100% plan to get started, just a large proportion of it,. It will undoubtedly change on the way so be prepared to embrace new learnings on your journey that ultimately impact and change your plan for the better.
