Reema’s Words of Wisdom for Other Women Thinking of Starting a Business:
1. Start with your why
2. Commit to your plan
3. Identify Strengths and Areas of Growth
4. Be Grateful
5. Don’t quit
It is most important to know why you are doing what you are doing. According to Simon Sinek, most decisions are made from the limbic part of the brain which is responsible for gut feelings and emotions. It is critical, to start with why you do what you do before you share what you do or what you have to offer. share your story and know that you are committed to the plan. Your network has to believe you will stick it out no matter what. Take a paper and identify YOUR strengths and areas of growth so you know where your personal development has to come from. You need to be grateful. I lacked gratitude during my journey over a 3 year period. To grow I had to be grateful for the now before I could welcome abundance. Finally, quitting is not an option and you need to shut the back door and the window so that success is your only option.
Just like having and raising that adorable baby, it’s challenging, it will bring you to your knees, you’ll find strengths and qualities you never knew you had and discover that with a positive attitude and open mind, the lifestyle, freedom and fulfilment that you get are so worth it!
