Entrepreneurial Role Models:
“If you are sincere enough then everyone is your role model, everyone has something that they can inspire you to do”
My spiritual Teacher
When business started difficulties overcame:
I had a little money from my parents and no business experience and it took me 5 years in the red before I started to turn a profit. And I had a client who was in business and she said to me oh people have to stay in business 3 years before they turn a profit. So I did that. And then she and visited me about 3 years later and she was oh no no five years. So I stuck it out for 5 years and in the fifth year I turned things around.
