Congratulations, Shannon! I'm glad to hear things are looking up.
Look at how far you have come
Thanks for sharing your story. Isn't success that much sweeter when you know how much you've invested into your dream?
This makes me think of another stressor us Entrepreneur women face. So many people don't believe in our dream, our businesses, until they see it paying off according to their own perceptions. We need to keep our own personal vision strong in front of us.
Actually, that is something I do. I regularly visualize my business as thriving and developing exactly as I hoped it would. I then keep that vision in my mind and regularly tell myself I CAN do this! My future is up to me and no one else. Of course, I need to make sure I'm keeping my thoughts on this positive track in order to support my vision. (I can't remember if I'm repeating myself on this thread. If so, my apologies.)
What do some of you other women entrepreneurs do to overcome the stress when someone close to you doesn't believe in your ability to succeed at what you are doing?
Remember, there may be someone who reads this who really needs to hear what you have to share.
