Keeping at it
Andy Dunn, the co-founder of Bonobos, once said, “Companies don’t die because they fail, but because entrepreneurs give up.” Not every day is rosy and amazingly bright when you are an entrepreneur. Many great founders also do not make it for various reasons. As a business owner, you will have hundreds of aspects to look after, and with or without help, you will falter at times. But the things that will keep you going are focus, dedication, and commitment. You have to convince yourself that the problems are “temporary” and not without a fix. The trials and tribulations are all part and parcel of starting out on your own and following your dreams. Successful companies do not get built overnight. You will have a lot of ups and downs along the way and feel like giving up many times. But the greatest success stories are all laced with war wounds that have ultimately brought them where they are today.
In the spirit of “not giving up”, we are here with yet another issue of WomLEAD Magazine to give startup owners that added push in the face of adversity. We feature stories of trailblazing women entrepreneurs who internalized their dream and passion to make an impact in their respective fields. They personify the fact that not everything will be under your control, but between fight or flight, they choose to fight and emerge victorious.
