7 Things I Wish Someone Told me When I Started my Business.

You don’t have to follow the rules

Watch who you take advice from

Don’t forget who you are

Make time for family

Embrace change and failure

  • Failure is part of the process.
  • Failure is not the end.
  • Failure is not the same as failure. If you’re trying something new and it doesn’t work, that’s a great way to find out what does!

Relax and have fun!

If you want to run a successful business, make sure you are in the right mindset.

  • Mindset is like a muscle: the more you work it out and exercise it, the stronger it gets! If you want to change your mindset for something better (for example: being kinder towards people around us), we need to realize that this takes time and effort; we can’t just snap our fingers one day and expect our inner demons to disappear overnight!
