Has starting your own business ever crossed your mind? Mine too! Ever thought, well I can do that. Me too!
I'm here to share a few struggles and tips on overcoming them from my experience with Pineapple Triangle.
Being a business owner isn't as glamorous as it seems. You work around the clock, always on the call and there's ALWAYS something that needs immediate attention. However, it's true what they say "Find what you love and you will never work day in your life!" Starting Pineapple Triangle was a dream of mine and I truly enjoy every part about it (even the late night emails, good thing there's coffee).
I've also learned that being a business owner is about taking risks and putting yourself out there. Yes, it's true, you have to get out of your comfort zone sometimes to make progress. I've been lucky enough to surround myself with supportive friends and family, who are there for me on the good, bad and absolutely amazing days!
Pineapple Triangle's mission is all about welcoming change. If I can convince just one person to welcome change and do what they love, then I feel that I've done my job. And remember, celebrate the small successes -- it will keep you sane and who doesn't like celebrating?!
