Can you believe 2017 is almost over? This has been an interesting year with a few changes for me. Change can be difficult or different, but it’s what you make of it that matters. Change can also be a good thing. Sometimes, you need to step back or remove yourself from a situation to realize that bigger things are on the horizon. As Oprah once said, “Turn your wounds into wisdom.”
Many people will give you advice when you are beginning a new venture. Some of it will be solicited and some, well, you may not want to hear. Some advice is real talk and needs to go in one ear and stick. I have received some good information from my fellow entrepreneurers. Not everyone will believe in your dreams, so it’s important to surround yourself with people who will encourage and support you.
It seems I always get tips at the gym. I ran into a friend the other day who has been in business for more than 16 years. He gave me an earful, but it was stuff that will stick and that I want to pass along.
