What does it really take?

Hey there,

I was reminded this week of the meaning behind the word courage and it made me reflect on what it really takes. Whether it be in your personal or professional life, having courage means that we don’t let our fear stop us from doing something difficult or risky.

Being an entrepreneur and running your own business can be hard. It takes a lot of will, hard work and determination to succeed. But as Winston Churchill states:

“Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.”

I am constantly amazed and inspired by designers who are putting themselves out there and creating the life they love. Check out this amazing interview with Emily McDowell who did something that she thought was impossible. Do you have a story to share? I would love to hear about your journey!



P.S. We are working up some exciting plans for those designers who are ready to make 2014 their best year yet, including a special VIP Mentoring Day in NYC. Stay tuned… ♥
