vision
As entrepreneurs we can best be described as vivid dreamers. We imagine the biggest most fascinating visions and plot as to how we can make them a reality. Our desire to live out our vision fuels us to do anything possible and “impossible” to make our dream something we live within. It can all be so frustrating though and makes us want to shout, “It’s my vision and I need it now!” Read More It’s My Vision and I Need it Now!

2013-2014
As the year 2013 ends and the year 2014 enters, it is the time of year people usually reflect on their year as a whole. We embrace our positive accomplishments and ponder about our negative setbacks; planning about how we will become more successful during the upcoming year.

slump
Recently, for the past several weeks I had been in a serious slump. Simply, things were not going as I wanted in both my personal and business life. Personally I was not able to do things I wanted to do and felt the pressure of meeting personal obligations, e.g. BILLS. This setback was due to a slowdown in business, which can dramatically impede all other areas of your life as an entrepreneur. And that is what was happening with me…I was in a bad slump that simply made me unmotivated to do anything. That is a terrible space to be in for an entrepreneur because we must always remain focused and productive in order to survive. Read More Coming Back from a Slump
