As I am making my way closer to the launch of SassaB™, I am finding that the one thing you have to have when starting a company is tenacity.
When I said (or kinda yelled) to my Husband "This is SO hard!", he calmly replied, "That is the reason most business owners do not make it. They give up because it is NOT easy." How true it is...
I have suppliers that threaten not to make something I need for SassaB™ if I ask them "how much longer will it take to receive my goods" one more time or suppliers refusing to accept any other type of payment other than a money order (which costs me $50 each time) so I am forced to go on the hunt again for another supplier. All of which is very frustrating.
Then there is the logo...I wish I was even a smidgen talented in graphic design so I could work on this myself...I know it'll be worth the wait but it is a lengthy process.
Without having any previous business experience, I am learning all of this as I go and that alone is enough to make me throw my hands up in the air and say "FORGET IT!" but...I refuse to do that because of...tenacity.
If you are going to start your own business, launch your very own invention, please learn this from me...you CAN do it but do not think for one second that it is easy or will happen quickly. It isn't and it wont. BUT all of your hard work, hours of frustration, bouts of pulling your hair out will one day pay off...so make the word "tenacity" a part of your vocabulary...you'll need it!
