If I’ve learned anything from starting a small business, it’s this. In order to start anything from nothing, you have to be patient. Success (typically) doesn’t happen overnight, in a week, or even in a year. If you don’t have the patience, and the excitement to be willing to wait and see your something in ten years, you probably shouldn’t bother creating it to begin with. I’m writing this to encourage and inspire those who have the will and vigor to start something from nothing and I’m also writing this to keep myself accountable! If you love what you are doing and are doing it well, keep at it! If no profit comes from it, at least it will feel good doing it and you’ve found yourself a new hobby. Giving up because the beginning stages are a little rough and you aren’t where you thought you would be? That’s the easy way out.
