I grew up loving business – I loved the independence; I loved the endless possibilities; I loved making people happy with creative products and services. Not much has changed through all these years!
I’m going to share with you why 10 times was a charm for me and the power in the perseverance of business.
It all started when I was 10 years old and began a babysitting business. That sounds young, even to me, but I already had 3 years of experience. My sister was born when I was 7 years old. She was like my baby – always on my hip. I offered childcare services until I was 18 and was known as the “town nanny.”
Later, I studied music at the Chautauqua Institute and offered haircuts to the folks in my dorm, as well as chauffeur services to and from the local airport.
Therefore, the journey continued…
At age 19, my bestie...

Ugh! The dreaded feeling of being an entrepreneur when it seems like you’re spinning your wheels, pumping out great content, and no one is listening. What are your choices? You could stop writing your blog and posting on social media. You could keep repeating your routine. Or make some changes.
This may seem like the easiest and best answer at first. I mean, if no one is listening or commenting on your hard work, why bother…right? But, let’s think about this. If you choose to hang up the towel, you are eliminating any possibility of getting recognized, seen, and/or heard. You are really saying to the world: “I don’t exist.” I don’t think that’s what you want is it?
I believe there is great power in dedication.

Many times in business, whether we’re supporting a local brick and mortar or an online establishment, our daily interactions are not with the founder or CEO of the company. Sometimes we connect with the manager, but more often than not, our dealings are with the support staff.
As customers, we associate the company with its employees. Our opinion of customer service (the frontline) contributes to our views regarding the business.
This is important for any entrepreneur because a solid frontline improves your bottom line.
Recently, I was at a local Starbucks and I told the Barista behind the counter that both bathrooms were out of toilet paper. Instead of apologizing and immediately rectifying the situation, she replied: “Oh, alright.” – with an eye-roll. Can you imagine if you were out on a date and that happened?
