Badassery Magazine Issue 2 July - Page 5

Letter from the editor W hen I first started my journey into business ownership I felt so lost! There are so many questions and legalities that everything can start to seem like Mount Everest. You can’t figure out how you will ever reach the top. Eventually everything starts to fall into place. Of course by fall, I mean you work so hard you think your heart, mind and body might explode. But yes, eventually things start to happen and momentum happens. Momentum is bumpy and unpredictable. Everyday you will find ways to doubt yourself. Don’t. Don’t let those small pieces of doubt take you off track or derail your goals and dreams. AND never apologize to yourself or anyone for working the hustle, EVER! You have the right to be unapologetically boss. You don’t owe anyone an explanation. Guilt can crumple and kill our dreams. It will make you the shell of a person you once were. Hold your head up high. Don’t even apologize to yourself. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at myself in the mirror and thought, “what the hell is wrong with me”...I need to do better. I learned the hard way this is no way to live. If you are here, pull your crumpled self off the cliff and stop apologizing for anything! You are a badass boss and you deserve to strut yourself. Some days I only change into new pajamas and some days I look like I could hit the runway! I don’t have to apologize to anyone for that, especially to myself. I encourage you to be so damn unapologetic that you are an unstoppable force. Keep building your empire and never look back! Be so #unapologeticallyboss that you turn heads. You’ve got this!
