If you could go back and give the 20 year old you a piece of advice, what would it be?
To go for it. I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur. I was pet-sittng and selling cookies in the neighborhood from a young age. I was basically side-hustling before I knew the word. 😂 I was really clear in college that I wanted to have my own business, but I didn’t have the path, I didn’t have the plan. I didn’t have the confidence and belief that I could do it and not fail. I got jobs and continued to side hustle, looking at others making it happen and wondering why I couldn’t do it and what was wrong with me. It was the lack of a clear plans, and the fear of failure. If had someone I really trusted to walk me through this process at the age of 20, it would not have taken me over a decade to get to running a business that is truly me serving from the highest gifts I have to offer.
When I was a college professor, I had students who paying their tuition and room and board by running their own company at age 20. Now looking back I can see that’s possible, and at the time I didn’t and that’s what I would change. To that girl in the middle of college, I’d say just go for it.
What would be on your heart to tell your 20 year old self? Would it be advice or encouragement?
