When I read blogs or look at social media, I tend to notice that many people only show the best pieces of their lives and businesses. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, only showing success is an inaccurate depiction of running a business.
During this year, especially in the last four months of running my business full-time, I have made quite a few mistakes and have almost given up on my business twice.
As someone who tries to be transparent with her business, I know that I can’t tell you “Hey, I earned $1,500 last month!” without telling you what it took. I also can’t expect for you to be successful if I make you think that all you have to do is start a blog.
Now, I’m not sharing these with you to deter you from starting your own business. The last thing I want to do is scare off someone who feels it is right in their heart to become an entrepreneur. I want you to see that even though entrepreneurship is a roller coaster ride, it is one of the greatest rides you could take if you believe that you’ll make it to the end.
