These past couple of weeks have been testing. As a young, female business owner, I often run into people who doubt me or don’t take me seriously. People who don’t think I’m capable of building my little stationery empire. They think this is a hobby and that working from home consists of soap operas, laundry and being a “kept” wife. None of which are the case. (Especially the laundry part.)
It should give you strength. Those doubters should fire you up, encourage you to work harder and prove them wrong. Sometimes ideas will work and sometimes they will not. Living in fear of doubt or failure (whether from outsiders or from within) will not foster success. Find strength and let those fears be your fuel.
