It's hard when you've always worked for someone else, you don't get much say in the company mission vision and values. You receive a handbook, and pen. Then you sign your life away never truly understanding their "Why? Your why is super important when you start working on building your brand. Your WHY should be in your heart and on your mind at all times. I tend to be reminded of my why, my Daughter - AKA Pooh Bear daily. Thinking of her keeps me going. Everything I've been working on and learning is to help change our future. So I'm always thinking about how my Brand reflects both of us and what it stands for.
Moving on to step three of the BYOB course reminds me of the saying "Always Remember Why You Started!"That's one of the best parts of starting your own business you are in total control. You finally get to make the BIG decisions and set the tone for your brand. I take a lot of pride in my mission, vision and values and each day I try to hold myself accountable for them.
