"It wasn't easy. But it makes it that much more unbelievable."
-My girl Kendra Scott
Nobody's story is peaches and cream, but that's what builds us S T R O N G!!!
I began my entrepreneurial journey on bed rest after going into labor 20 weeks into my pregnancy!!! That was definitely not easy. But I persisted!!!! I never graduated from an Ivy league school, in fact I never graduated college at all! I didn't have any funding handed to me when I started, I had to work for every bit of it. When I first started, everyone told me constantly that I would fail. But I didn't! Not because I was gifted, but because I tried and tried and tried I was able to make it to where I stand today.
Empowered women empower women!!!! If you haven't read Kendra Scott's story, you need to IMMEDIATELY!! This beautiful woman built her empire up from her spare bedroom and has created AMAZING things! Hearing her story has built me up and pushed me to become the woman I am today.
That's why it is so important to hear and tell stories! These people and these stories are real life. You are just as capable of each one of us, and I want you to know that you are stronger than you will ever know!!!!
I encourage you today to tell someone your story, no matter where you're at. Let them know where you came from, and where you're going. You'd be surprised at how much you can inspire someone and how much they can inspire you! Ask for their story too.
People are amazing.
I am constantly talking to total strangers in public and asking about their stories! I have met the most INSANELY INCREDIBLE people just from talking to people next to me on airplanes.
And I've made such great friendships from doing so!!!!
Never be afraid to ask questions. Asking these things will
Inspire and be inspired. You're worth it!!!!!
