Now, I wish I had a magical story to tell you, but to be honest, I struggled through my first year of business like you, and the many before me. However, there is one thing any small business owner can do, that will almost always set you above the rest.
I suppose I can claim being creative is in my genes. I grew up watching my mom create an absolute legacy of a floral business all on her own. My grandmother is always crafting, sewing, and creating new recipes. My grandfather on my mom's side is a master home builder, not to mention other extended family members who are creative entrepreneurs and talented artists in their own way! From a very young age I was always expressing myself in some way, from singing, painting, creative writing, or acting, you name it and chances are, I did it. Through middle and high school I was always in some type of art and music class. I was certain I would graduate and pursue musical education in some fashion. I was completely in love with the idea of teaching kids how to express themselves in the same ways I did growing up. It wasn't until I was handed a camera that I realized I had such a burning passion to not just create art, but to do so in a way that encourages others express their deepest emotions!
However, creativity and passion, are only the first sparks to ignite a bright and burning future. Do you want to know what that one thing is that has set all the world's successes above the rest?
