Valentine's Day 2016: that was four years ago when I quit my job. Although we had already started a festival vending business selling cotton candy and frozen drinks, in our minds we had a plan about what the next steps were 😳, but we really didn't know what the hell we were doing. We just knew that we had to find a better way to live this life. At the time, all we knew was, we were running a cash based business, it was fun and it was just the two of us and every once in awhile we would have friends & family help us. And it just felt like the best thing to do... feeding people, seeing people laugh and smile and working our asses off.
Fortunately, we quickly realized that those things aren't the only things that keep a business going. You also need ACCESS TO MONEY... It's what allows you to purchase equipment, inventory, increase your marketing spend, or whatever else you need it for....but in order to access the money, you need 1 or all 3 of the following: ✅GOOD CREDIT 💳
✅LONGEVITY IN THE BUSINESS⏳
✅A GOOD PLAN🛣
It's been 4 years since we went out on our own, and although our businesses have changed our why is still the same: to create our own kind of freedom, to make people laugh & smile and to love on our families. But in order to make all that happen we had to plan and implement the necessary steps in order to see success.
Whatever your why is (for whatever you decide to do in this life), remember it's about taking the small, strategic steps to get to your own definition of success. That's the best kind of love!! Happy Valentine's Day ❤😘!!
