How do you find inspiration?
As business owners, you’ve had your fill of uncertainty, joy, fear, empowerment… It’s difficult to stay motivated 24/7 and keep evolving to reach your business’ ultimate success.
Well, I love stories, especially ones that spotlight wonderfully imaginative individuals who are willing to share how they’ve worked to develop a business in a really cool way. They’re inspiring!
The story doesn’t have to be about saving the world because hey, let’s face it, that’s impossible. I’m talking about small changes – whether you’re suggesting a new way for people to think or helping someone finally find his/her unique style.
I think we can all inspire each other – no matter where we’ve been, where we are, or who we are. The following people strike my fancy and while they’re
kind of a big deal today, at one point, they were all in your shoes – a small business owner. For example, Sara Blakely, founder of Spanx (and Atlanta resident – hello!), started in her home as a one-woman show. Today, she’s “the youngest self-made female billionaire!”
We hope you get inspired by these three stories:
1. Sara Blakely, founder of Spanx
2. David Gilboa & Neil Blumenthal, cofounders of Warby Parker
3. Kevin Systrom, founder of Instagram
So, we’re curious. What drives you? Share your story with us. We’d love to hear!
