They say the first five years is usually the hardest.
Someone asked me recently if I planned to start a business. I told her no, that it was an accident.
I started writing my journey to JunElevenCo but then it’s been a year and I still haven’t gotten around to finishing it.
Oh well, here we are.
It’s been officially one year and it has been quite the journey. I’m either always torn between feeling on top of the world or threatening myself to get a 9 – 5. It’s been crazy but I like I said in a previous post, It’s an experience I won’t trade for anything as it was bound to happen sooner or later.
Today, I’m particularly thankful to God first of all. I don’t think I’ll be anywhere without him. That still voice always nudging me in the right direction is something I’m eternally grateful for.
I’m also thankful for my clients who are all unintentionally amazing women, my Sheroes who are literally taking a chance with me. Half the time, I’m just winging it and hoping to God that a strategy works. Thank you.
I’m thankful for my tiny support system who drive me crazy most of the time but it’s also great to know that they’ll always be there.
Finally, I’m thankful for my boyfriend, my biggest cheerleader with whom I can be the best version of myself. I love you, babe.
I feel like I’m supposed to follow up with business lessons I’ve learnt over the past year but I’m gonna reserve that for another post.
In the meantime, I’m just gonna end with my very first feature from Business Day’s The Spark NG. Enjoy!
