I became an entrepreneur in 2016. I was 23 when I made the leap to run my own business and boy has it been a roller coaster ride. The life of an entrepreneur is often glamourized on social media making you think it’s all unicorns and rainbows but the truth is it can be very lonely, scary, full of pressure and high standards.
I want to be an advocate for the entrepreneurs who are struggling but have to put a smile on their face for their clients.
I want to advocate for the business owners who are feeling fear right now because their mortgage payment is counting on a client contract.
I want to advocate for the young entrepreneurs who have such passion for what they do but are experiencing many challenges including mentorship and support.
I want to advocate for the entrepreneurs who have passionately pitched their business but have been turned down multiple times.
I want to advocate for the entrepreneurs who are afraid to share their story, take a break, pivot or try something new because they fear judgement.
Our mental health is so important and as entrepreneurs we need to start sharing our experiences, taking a rest day, surrounding ourselves with empowering and motivating people who understand what we go through and contribute to end stigma because entrepreneurs struggle too, I know I do.
