“ Learn how to do your research. As an entrepreneur, you have to be resourceful. There won’t always be someone there to answer your questions. No one owes you anything so don’t be upset when someone you don’t know doesn’t reply to your DM seeking help. If you find yourself really struggling, HIRE A COACH. Don’t be afraid to invest in yourself. Not only is it worth it, but it will make the journey a lot easier. Entrepreneurship isn’t cheap *lol*.
