This last week in Orlando was incredible. I went to a 2 day workshop on ecommerce optimization. Not only did I learn 1 million things to do to make my business better, but I was also extremely encouraged being around other business owners who are pursuing their dreams.
So my takeaways??
1. Work hard. Don't let life happen to you. You are in control of your day. Your work ethic. Your relationships. If you want something out of life, work hard to get it.
2. Practice gratitude. Gratitude shifts your mindset. I am so thankful that I took the leap of faith in April of 2020 to start this business. I didn't know what I was getting into but I did it anyways. I knew I wanted to offer women workout clothes that they feel feminine and beautiful in. I wanted to offer an excellent customer shopping experience that involves relationships and makes people feel connected. And I wanted to make some money on the side so I could help support our family. So with that little dream, I took the leap. Yes I was afraid people would judge me. But man am I glad that I didn't let that stop me.
3. You can be your own worst enemy. You are the only one preventing your dreams from coming true. So I encourage you - DO THE DREAM. If God planted a desire in your heart, he will equip you to fulfill it. Even if you don’t know exactly what you’re doing (you never will). Even if you are scared people will judge you (because they will and it won't matter). Even if it’s scary. DO IT. You are worth it.
Business is not easy. But it’s worth it because I’m doing what I love (making women feel beautiful inside and out) and I have a vision for where I want it to go (the go to online shop for all things workout clothes for women all over the US).
I’m not there yet, but I will be! And you can be too :)
Thank you for following along and being a part of this beautiful community.
