Take care of yourself boo
When starting a business or growing one, we often fall for the RA RA mood of it all. We find ourselves pushing harder and harder sometimes out of full motivation, other times because we want to be seen as being consistent and other times, to meet our goals. We are plagued with the whole “sleep 4 hours a day” hustle mentality that in my experience, does us no good. If you are starting a business or growing one, am essential part of what we do is SELF CARE. You should never put yourself second to your goals and your business. As hard as it may be.
