How to Live a Day

Momentum…The reason I love this word and used it in the title is that this is what makes us. The momentum built of what we do everyday regularly in our lives.

To recognize myself as a person geared for strength and success.

Lessons for Entrepreneurs I

For the past week, trying to become an entrepreneur with an actual business has been an emotional rollercoaster for me. One minute, I feel ready to market and deliver everything; the next minute, I think I cannot do this so should just look for my next desk job.
