About to take off for San Fran and just reflecting on how excited I am for the opportunity to work with a company I’ve admired since BEFORE I started my own business. I’m thinking about what that girl — the girl who started her biz with ZERO idea of what she was doing back in 2013 — would say to this girl just a couple short years later.
If I could go back, I would reassure that girl that her instincts to be AUTHENTIC, transparent, and uniquely HER were correct. Why? Because authenticity is a magnet for opportunity. When you show up confidently and unapologetically for who you really are, people pay attention. It will take time, it will take hard work, but people will always respect and respond to realness.
SO, if you feel like you’re at square one right now OR if you’ve been pursuing your dreams for years… the advice is the same: be yourself. Be yourself radically, authentically, radiantly, and good things will come. I just know it.
