I believe most of us set out on the path to entrepreneurship with a lot of hope, energy, and excitement but it doesn’t take long on the journey to realize we’re not just expected to be great at our craft, there’s a lot of other tricks we have to add to our bag. Marketing, sales, pitching, PR, bookkeeping to name a few. Not to mention the tough skin needed to overcome obstacles, comparison, hurt feelings, and setbacks.
It’s a bumpy road we’re traveling and with time it can be hard to hang on to the hope, the excitement, the fun, and most of all —the creativity.
In a black and white business world that says success is … Money, achievement, power. Do it this way! Follow this formula.
How do you hang on to the wonder and creativity?
In today’s interview, Anita shares a compelling story of starting, pivoting, and starting again. Even though the path may look like wrong turns and failures, how each part of her journey taught lessons she would need for the next part.
If you’ve ever felt you were losing your creativity, stuck in a role that no longer seems to fit, or just a creative robot for hire… I hope Anita’s story of bravery and courage to start again is just what you need to hear today.
