When you make the decision to take the plunge and become an entrepreneur, it is both thrilling and terrifying. The rush of becoming your own boss and chasing that dream is invigorating to say the least. Then the reality hits you that you didn’t go to business school and you have no clue what in the heck you are doing. All you know is that your dream is out there and you are ready to make it a reality. Well Now what? Take a walk on the wild side of my entrepreneurial journey and what it’s like with a pride.
In 2018 I had been a business owner for about a year with little traction and direction. Recently graduated from my Master Makeup Artistry course. Ready to be a successful businesswoman. I had created my own website and was gaining clients, very slowly might I add. As I watched my friend help other entrepreneurs and thriving I started to wonder what am I doing wrong? Why isn’t this working? Standing on my platform for all my friends and family to see hoping they would start to book with me.
Frustrated and lost I reached out to a friend to shed some light on my dimming dream. It all started with a website overhaul and an idea I had for bringing my skill set to the online world. Sacha was the brave and fearless face as I gave my little idea a try. We worked out kinks and blocks and I was starting to see that HEY I can do this after all. Finding a strength in the fact I had an entrepreneur friend, that not only understood where I was on my journey but has been there before. I was introduced to this fantastic online community called The Empowerment Pride!
Now we are getting to the juicy bits as I was suddenly part of a group that just got me! We were all on the same path and at different points. Quickly I found out that we are stronger together. With weekly power up meetings to keep me on track. To setting realistic goals, a plan of attack and the ability to actually achieve them. Having a new focus on my dreams and a way to move forward I found my new place in the busy world of entrepreneurs. Not knowing the first thing about business only a hunger to learn. I devoured the multitude of learning resources at my finger tips as a perk of joining my Pride. Batch Tasking, Time Chunking, SEO and how to pitch myself were topics that made my head spin. Through the never tiring efforts of Sacha and her team of lions our library of knowledge is ever expanding. From within this pride of lions we roar and grow our strengths and businesses. Finding myself a pride has brought so much more of hunger and the ability to see my target and take it down.
