To persevere or to pivot is a question that do-ers have been asking themselves since the beginning of time. It’s never a straight road when you are doing something new, blazing a trail, breaking a ceiling, or pushing boundaries, so it’s only natural to wonder whether to give up midway. How do you know whether to keep going or to give up?

Nothing great has ever came from giving up; you have to think positive and keep going no matter what. I know it may seem easier said than done but I hope my testimony inspire many upcoming entrepreneurs. I signed a suite lease for $1600 a month a week prior to me actually starting my business. I can remember the day like it was yesterday, I came into work on April 20, 2021 and my manager informed everyone that our current position was being terminated and if we wanted to continue working with the business we will have to change our hours of operation which forced me to make a huge decision right there on the spot.

I suffer from anxiety, so I periodically breakdown and want to give up. I have a day of release and during this release, I ask “If this is for me send me a form of encourage; a sale, a review, a shoutout, something -just let me know that this journey is mines and no one else’s.” and no exaggeration but like magic a sign comes to me. To be honest this article request was my most recent sign! I literally had just had a meltdown and then I checked my email and seen this and was like ok ok! I honestly believe nothing is a coincidence, if you’re unsure just ask whether you’re religious or spiritual….if its for you God or the universe will show you! Read more>>
