Take the Shot


More powerful than the will to win is the courage to begin.


I do not remember where I saw this quote, but I do know that it's one of the few quotes I hold onto. Being an entrepreneur seems to be the dream of everyone I speak to, but the majority of them always hit the roadblock of being afraid to take that leap into what they're passionate about. We all hear the saying “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take,” and while it may seem cliche and overused, I notice many people I come in contact with not taking the shots.

Once you begin, what are the tools and shots you're taking to maintain and grow your business? Starting can be difficult, yes, but maintaining and staying afloat can be an even bigger struggle. At the end of the day, the best investment you can make is in YOURSELF! Consider your current financial knowledge and how much more you can learn to take things to another level. That thing you’ve wanted to start, please start it, educate yourself on everything it entails, and push forward in your journey.
