A friendly reminder … When you are first starting out as a new entrepreneur, your friends and family are most likely not going to be your biggest supporters at first. They simply don’t understand what you are doing. That’s ok. Love them anyways. As they watch your new business venture take form, it’ll make more sense to them later on.
Surround yourself with support. Follow online leaders in your niche, listen to podcasts and & live streams and join Facebook groups full of people learning and teaching what you are looking for.
