Sarah’s Advice

One thing I've struggled with during my entrepreneurial journey is spending so much time learning. Whether it's through podcasts or courses or books. Of course, education is important, and you should learn. But if you spend all your time learning and never implementing what you learned. What's the point Really? So recently, I've adopted this for every hour I spend learning, I'll spend another hour implementing what I learned. That way I don't get stuck on that. I guess a rabbit hole basically, of education. Just reading and listenting to podcasts because if you never implement what you learn, it's kind of pointless.

My particular advice and that is I never would have thought I would be in the circles and doing the things that I am now like 10 years ago. The more that I pushed forward, the more that I was able to break down doors and glass ceilings. So now everything seems pretty limitless. For a lot of founders out there, they just feel like they're going to win overnight and then most folks are not going to win overnight.It's like a 10 year journey itself. Your journey. I've seen folks that raise several rounds and they're still, like needing to raise more rounds. Really believe in yourself, surround yourself with other folks that believe in yourself. But also challenge you to be better.
