Your State of Mind Is Critical!
Who feels like this today besides me? It starts with a thought like...
My vision is crystal clear, my focus intense, my goal is in sight and I am relentless. There is ZERO chance ANYTHING I want will get away.
Sometimes it can be difficult to focus on the positive, especially when you are starting a new business. Every little setback or obstacle can feel insurmountable. We feel like we are losing direction. Maybe we are being foolish to think we can be entrepreneurs - especially at our age!

I was just reminded of how important it is to have a support group after attending a wonderful 4-day event in Orlando. Spending all that time in a room with like-minded people was empowering. It was like a breath of fresh air - or maybe I should say a gale force wind because it completely swept my mind free of some negative thoughts I'd been having. I remembered all the people who had reached out to me when I felt like quitting. And I knew I had to go back and remind everyone of the same thing - you are not in this alone!
