I would say that I wish opening, maintaining and growing a business were easy, but if I did, I wouldn’t be telling you the truth. If it were easy, how would we grow professionally? How would we become resourceful? How would we build dope, lifetime connections with other businesswomen? How would our perfect tales of no bumps along the road inspire others?
The truth is, birthing and growing a business can be difficult, but this same difficulty is what helps us develop that strong hunger and grit that's necessary in the world of entrepreneurship. This difficulty is what pushes us to build and sustain solid teams, seek knowledge, and create and adhere to solid plans. For these reasons, I can’t say that I wish being a businesswoman were easy.

When I finally made my mind up about taking the entrepreneurial route two years ago, I had SO many struggles. I didn’t know how to start, where to start or even what to do to start. I struggled to find a designer for my logo, my website, my social media graphics, you name it. I had to figure it all out, and I lost a lot of money in the process. All the things I should’ve known, I didn’t know.
