3 Takeaways:

1) No matter how many businesses you have started or been a part of, there will always be struggles when you are launching something new. Keep going anyway.

2) Times get extremely difficult sometimes when you are a business owner and you have to surround yourself with a strong network that will support you and allow you to be transparent. If you don’t, the effects can be deadly.

3) Sometimes you can see a solution to a problem and bring it to market that will help so many people and make money at the same time. This is a win-win in business. Whatever you are selling should be beneficial for all parties if you truly want to achieve success.
