The following are entrepreneurial ventures I’ve embarked on in the past. I grew up running lemonade stands around different neighborhoods in my town, and created an empire of babysitting clients as a teenager. Running my own business as an adult takes a bit more inner futzpah and is chock full of “Can I really pull this off?” triggers that are scary as all hell. But it’s 100% worth it for the will-power, creativity, freedom, and ability to make an impact that truly resonates with your soul.
Here are some of the businesses I started. If you’re thinking about going the entrepreneurship route, I’ve got your back! Keep Going. One step at a time, one push forward at a time, and don’t forget your heart in the process.
