“If you’re still doing the same thing you’ve been doing for the last 5 years or 10 years, it’s probably time to assess. Has the business grown? Have you grown? Have the people following you grown?”
“I started to realize the longer I was in that niche, the more people were jumping in the niche with me. I was getting better but my numbers were starting to go down. I could tell immediately I picked the wrong niche.”
“You didn’t realize you had to go through all these other steps to get to that profitable stage first. So now you’re disappointed and you’re discouraged and you’re like, ‘I’m just trying to get something going.’ But we all have gone through the struggle to make this work. This is part of entrepreneurship.”
