3 Key Points:
- Live your truth, speak your truth.
- Ask yourself what you want from life before starting a business (and don’t just say “more money”).
- There’s power in being adaptable, but there’s also danger in its inherent absence of focus—if you’re adaptable, find someone or something to help you zero-in on what must be done to succeed!
