All I can tell you really is if you get to the point where someone is telling you that you are not great or not good enough, just follow your heart and don’t let anybody crush your dream. – Patti Labelle
Dreams are not given to committees and thus not everyone will approve of your dream. Similar to a new company and its founder, so must you be with your dream. Have a business start-up like attitude, savvy, tenacity and resolve to get it done.
Treat it with the same level of discipline as you would your 9 to 5, but for yourself. You can get there.
