In Episode 4, we chat with Jess about her personal insights and learnings on what entrepreneurs may want to know before they start their companies – on what they may have done differently and what they can learn from their mistakes and pivots of others.
It may not be the easiest time to launch a startup, however if you really believe in what you want and need to do for someone or a need in business or community – give it a try. For Jess, passion and belief in what you are doing during this journey helps her to get to her goal.
If you are going to fail, do it quickly to allow you to move forward to getting to your goal. Bring others in to help you navigate your journey! You will get there – just may not in the way that you envisioned! For Jess, she wouldn’t change the ups and downs she experienced during her journey in moving forward with her startup Jess Black!
Stay tuned for Episode 5 – Entrepreneurs and Work Life Balance!
