Key Takeaways

  • If you are running your own business, your job will mainly be to fix things – and the job of ‘fixer’ is a difficult one. Prepare yourself for the micro negative moments and focus on the big picture.
  • Know what you are signing up for and take accountability for your actions.
  • Have patience. If you have only been working on something for a few years, give it time.
  • How much you put into your business is how much you get out of it! Hire well to make sure you are supported throughout.
  • Always, always, always stay authentic when sharing on social media. Anything that isn’t true or is embellished is inherently vulnerable.
  • If you’re happy, if you love what you do and if you have figured out how to live within your means, you’ve won.
