Being focused and having a smart business plan will get you a lot further than you may think.
My advice for young entrepreneurs? Listen to your peers, build a strong network around you, and never take no for an answer.
It is never too late to follow your dreams.
Understand your strengths and weaknesses and build from there.
Sometimes you don’t always follow the path you thought you would, and that’s OK.
Never stop learning or seeking out new information. You never know what will benefit you the most.
