Every day, I meet people who I’m either doing business with or meeting in the course of my day. Whether as a consumer or observer, in many instances two things come to mind- 1. That they’re super talented and 2. they don’t seem to know their worth.
As an entrepreneur, my own journey was delayed, denied and procrastinated to the hilt. I took the leap after becoming fed up of wasting my time (and energy) working on someone else’s dreams, while mine was gathering dust. It took realizing that my time is precious and was better spent in pursuits that speak to my innate talents-which is to write, to engage, to teach and to learn.

The entrepreneur by accident - My car detailer who has the most wonderful vegetable
garden and who makes the greatest organic burgers, hot sauces, and seasonings; my nail tech who is gifted beyond measure; my hairstylist extraordinaire, who always manages to create (for me) an effortless chic that has become my brand.
And there are so many more. I often talk to them, yet when I push even a little, I see that look in their eyes of not yet, of wanting everything to be perfect before they jump. I see how they long for success, but because of fear, they envision falling instead of flight.
I know how you feel; however, I also know that the quest for perfection can delay you forever- leaving you with regret at what might have been. Together, we can create a new economic reality – one that is built on the gifts and talents you possess.
