Q: What advice would you give women just starting out in business?
A: I would advise not to think too much about how things will come together in the future. Just do your best from the beginning, and everything will be just fine. Do not be afraid to work with others that may have a skill set that you do not. Everyone cannot possibly be good at everything. Think about what you do best and make it a goal to do more of it every day. If you find yourself overwhelmed, take a step back and think about what you may have available that can help. Sometimes it is time, and other times it is resources.
Also, take care of your body and mind. It is easy to fall into an unhealthy lifestyle when work gets stressful or family life becomes hectic. Try and get good sleep, eat as healthfully as you can, and get in some exercise. Those things make a big difference.
