Starting a business has been the most difficult and interesting journey of my life. There's a ton of soul-searching involved and owning up to your short comings. Why put yourself through this kind of scrutiny? I have an easy answer for this "Freedom". I've worked in the health care industry for 14 years as an Occupational Therapist and never have I felt autonomy, creative freedom and independence such as owning my own business. I ultimately have the freedom of choosing my own path as well as the freedom to make mistakes. I understand that making a mistake is pivotal towards growth. The mistakes I made has afforded me the understanding of what to do and most importantly, what not to do moving forward. Are you thinking of starting a business? Remove your fears and follow your path. You will not regret it!
