Real talk…. I never thought I’d make it this far when I got into business.
Especially on nights that I couldn’t freaking open my garage because my electricity was out. Or my cell was off. I was trotting around Houston looking like a dime but with an empty bag-not from lack of effort. I was just in a business where you wait and you hope and you pray that your client don’t F up their credit before they close on their house and mess up your whole commission.
Every time you get a check-you are 2-3 months behind and it feels like you’re constantly in quicksand trying to pull yourself out of a financial hole….Rocky is an understatement. But I lack embarrassment. I figure I can help you more from my struggle years than to just to look like I’ve always been winning…..
I earned EVERY SINGLE LESSON in these 15 years in business. And I wouldn’t change it for the world truly. My only regret is that I didn’t start sooner and get all those lessons out of the way earlier. But I held back. I was fearful. I said-next year I’ll launch. Then the next and I found that my journals were getting thicker but the goals weren’t changing…..I digress. I could go on and on.
I write this teary because I can’t scrape together 3 people who believed me from beginning to end. But in all with or without support-I made it. I still help people. I still pay bills that ain’t mine. I still come through. And I feel that God continues to bless me for my tenacity and for respectfully keeping a short memory for those who couldn’t find a reason to share a word of encouragement……. BUT GOD.
The way that it feels that I can invest in my projects, and have people on staff, and not struggle and wake up each day to touch people globally. There is no feeling that compares. Nor would I go back and change my struggle years. Look Ma-I made it. 15 years in and a lifetime to go…..
