Something to think about...
“An entrepreneur is on a journey of self-development; this can be one of the most difficult and rewarding adventures at the same time. Lasting success takes time, courage, recognition of behaviour patterns and personal reflection. This cannot be avoided, it will reappear until you deal with yourself”
Nicole Attias, communications skills and business coach
