Oprah Winfrey once said, “Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.” And that is exactly what Bright Moments strives to achieve.
Starting a new business is tough! But in traditional brick-and-mortar businesses you have people physically by your side, working on the storefront and dealing with logistics.
Now, with the digital era, the opportunity for women to start businesses in their own home is incredible. But, it also lends itself to loneliness.
When you’re a beginner entrepreneur, starting your business often uncovers more questions you didn’t know you needed the answers to!
Having the expertise and support of those who have been there before helps you to save time and energy. Plus, it makes you feel like you’re not alone. We all had to start somewhere, and understanding that the reason others have these answers is because they’ve been through this can stop you feeling overwhelmed.
This wealth of knowledge at your fingertips makes sure you’re feeling confident in your new venture and supported, which projects outwards to your clients, making you more likely to be successful.
Building On The Encouragement
Ever felt like you wanted to quit? You’re not alone. Sometimes life just gets in the way and it stops you from achieving what you would like to.
For example, many other small business owners we are connected to have children, families and other commitments so they know the stress and balance that needs to be struck between a new business and your home life. Sometimes we just need encouragement if we’ve had to stay up late (again) because things haven’t gone according to plan.
Encouragement boosts our self esteem and gives us the validation we need to push through when we need it most. Because nothing can be as challenging (or rewarding) as starting our own online business so you’ll need plenty of encouragement along the way! Then you can build on this to find lasting success.
