Main Points in What I Learned in My Entrepreneurial Journey

  1. To be the best you need to give your all, all of the time. People will doubt you, even those close to you, but you have to follow your gut. 
  2. You can study all the education to improve your business, but if your mindset isn’t right it’s not going to stick.
  3. Authenticity is key for boutiques to survive going into the future.
