How a young girl with no education formed her own business into a 22 million dollar enterprise and learned many lessons along the way. She shares"If I can do this, you can too."
The first step is always the hardest, except for that second step. The third step isn’t much easier. Pretty soon though you learn to run, and then you fall down because you ran too fast. You can pretty much count on getting hurt by running or falling down sometimes. The chances are that you will bump into other people along the way. They might skin their knee too when you unintentionally knock them off balance.
Don’t lose your honest self in the process of ownership. No matter how hard life gets, or how short you are on time, take precious seconds to be kind even when you are taking a firm stance.
Set boundaries and live within them. Make sure others know where the in-field is. Set new boundaries as you grow.
Remember that if a little girl with no formal education can succeed, then you can too.
Put your helmet on, buckle your seatbelt, and get your business going.

I had not read my own book in a while, and the recent death of businesses because of Covid encouraged me to read my own words.
So many of us have lost hope in our business dreams. When March 18th hit, our small shops were in shock, but we braced for a short shut down. There was still hope.
Months passed, and hope began to fade.
Into our 9th month of shoestring budgets, hope is dangling by a tiny thread or has totally broken.
Christmas is a season of hope. Don't give up too soon. Don't give up on what you can achieve. Let the good news that the holiday brings spur you on to keep going.
If you want this book and cannot afford it, please email me, and I will send it to you free of charge this month. If you can afford it and buy it- then together we will give one to someone who needs encouragement.
Don't give up just, "keep r movin."

Countless entrepreneurs often give up too soon, or don’t put in the effort to move the needle forward. If your dream is strong enough, you can achieve the dream you seek—and my hope is that these stories can help you get there.
