Remember that it is all possible.
You do you. Let go of what you think other people are gonna say about you. Allow yourself to be yourself.
Know your why. Why are you creating this business? What impact are you going to make?
Stop playing it safe. Say yes. Make mistakes. Start NOW.
Create your own education. Find a mentor, read books - just soak up knowledge in whatever way you can.
Do the work. Validate. Adjust. Rinse and repeat.
Know your ideal customer. Write down who they are, and how you will help them.
Share your story. Put your “you-ness” out there. Because being you is your superpower.
Believe it’s real before it’s real.
Make dollar one. Start your side hustle.
