Stick to those Dreams – One of the most valuable lessons one can learn as an entrepreneur is that more often than not, our dreams are simply too small. Innovators need to continue to push past boundaries, create new paths to achieve something phenomenal. What may seem like impossible times can be caused by lack of experience, lack of industry knowledge, lack of influential network, and lack of capital. But the bigger the dream is, the bigger your belief will be in yourself which will make more opportunities for growth in the future. - Jordann Windschauer, CEO and founder of Base Culture.
Don’t be afraid of Failure - Life is too short to let fear make your decisions for you. It’s definitely not easy to overcome fear of failure but, once you build up confidence to not let fear hold you back you will achieve more success as you go on.
