Advice for Entrepreneurs
"Being a successful entrepreneur is incredibly rewarding, but success does not come easily. As part of the journey, you're going to have REALLY tough days, and that is a natural part of the process. Find great people you trust early on who will give you candid advice. People who will celebrate with you on the good days and help get you through the difficult ones."
