There will be hard days to overcome. There will be moments that will challenge you and there will be difficulties along the way. Starting a business will take you out of your comfort zone and will help you grow. Believe in yourself, in your cause and dedicate as much to it as you can, and it will be worth it in the end.

  • Assign tasks and trust people. For a long time, I tried to be in charge of a lot of functions within the company because I believed that nobody would do them as well as I could. Until I was so burned out with work that I couldn’t take it anymore. My work started to decline and I wasn’t performing as well anymore because I was so overwhelmed with everything that I was in charge of. When I started to hire people and delegate tasks to other employees, everything started to go smoothly and I was able to find people that were very good at their tasks. They not only replaced me, but started to do a better job than I was doing because they could focus on their respective areas and nobody was working too much. My advice is that you should always find people to work with you, people that share your vision and they will help you achieve your goals without you sacrificing yourself or being burned out with work.
  • There will be hard days to overcome. There will be moments that will challenge you and there will be difficulties along the way. Starting a business will take you out of your comfort zone and will help you grow. Believe in yourself, in your cause and dedicate as much to it as you can, and it will be worth it in the end.
  • Believe that your business will grow and prepare for that growth. We quickly got overwhelmed with manually entering in new customers and had to quickly pivot to keep up with demand. Your business can grow a lot quicker than you anticipate.
