People always give me and Josie Anna Pitcher lovely kind words of encouragement like "you guys are smashing it!" 💟
But, honestly running a small business feels like an emotional rollercoaster...🎢 some days you are screaming with joy and others days you are screaming for the ride to stop! 🤢
Many entrepreneurs say that starting a business is HARD... I’m starting to think running one is even HARDER.
Elon Musk is quoted as saying that "running a startup is like chewing glass and staring into the abyss" 😬😳
This comes as no surprise, when every part of your business has the potential to stress you out and keep you up at night… be it the lack of sales, supplier issues, technical meltdowns and even co-founder meltdowns (with all events taking place before you've had a chance to have your lunch!)
Simon Sinek calls this journey ‘the infinite game” and it can be mentally exhausting on days to find the positivity to keep persevering with your quest.📍
With the ongoing economic uncertainty and geopolitical issues, many small business owners like us are feeling the pinch, as consumers are tightening their belts and household spending habits are becoming more regulated. 🤓
Despite the long hours, the financial stress and the general ups and downs of running your own company… We still see immense personal and relationship growth and are ready for the challenge ahead! 🙌🏆
"Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality" - Jonas Salk
