This time we’re coming to you from a spiritual tip.
During this first quarter I have heard from several women with plans as start-ups and existing businesses to make sure the first few months coming out their business decisions would be on track. Like most of us we have a timeline to make sure plans are on target, (Marketing- branding, financial, sales, increase of revenue) objectives are met. In some cases, we met two out of the four but, this is not the time to get dishearten there is still HOPE.
The Bible states clearly. (Hebrew 11.1) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. When you think you are at a standstill and your goals don’t seem in sight, we want to encourage you to press forward. I have been where you are, not giving up and being determined for the long hall, just know in the end you will WIN. It might not be within the first quarter but keep your goals in sight. WIN to a level that you feel good about your goals and then you can look back and smile. For the plans of a good man (woman) are clear in sight if you remain steadfast, hold on and don't give up.
Reach out to friends’ relatives, colleagues who will support your efforts understand you are not by yourself. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King " If you can't fly run; if you can't run, walk; if you can't walk crawl; but whatever you do keep moving forward." We are all connected, and we all need each other to survive, grow and thrive. Here's to the journey.
I’m not going to belabor this, I just want you understand during the Woman’s History Month and going forward SUE has your back.
