It is always moving and that is the realisation that – I want to help end the cycle of financial survival for women entrepreneurs. I’m sick of it. Its unnecessary and its an epidemic. It pisses me off how most entrepreneurs fail, because they fail to make money. I’m changing that.
And while this is exciting, it’s also scary. And full of responsibility. And as always, always tinged with sadness because my Mum is not here, with me, to see it happen.
In Paris I I felt completely independent, I felt like anything is possible. Anything I want and the more clear I can be on what I want – then the more I can create. This didn’t ‘just happen’ to me, and it is not luck. I have worked hard, the journey has not been pretty, not glamorous, with worries, and late nights and constantly challenging and never giving up. I have persevered and pushed and believed to this point i find myself in today.
It all comes back to making a decision. I made a decision 5 years ago in Paris. I decided my business was going to be successful. What decision can you make that will radically change things – what can you start what can you stop what can you give up?
That is one of the reasons why getting the All Star Award was so important to me. It forced me to really look at what I have achieved and it made me stop and take inventory. And articulating what I’ve done even scares me – how the hell did I do that?
I have deep gratitude for that process that the Business All Stars put me through on so many levels. It has made me acknowledge myself and what I have done and how far I have come.
