Building a business as an entrepreneur is often hard and lonely work. You're 100% guaranteed to come face-to-face with fear, financial hardships, and failures. These valuable lessons can't be avoided, but with the proper mindset and resources, you can learn how to bounce back from your encounters. "Uncover Your Greatness" was created to help entrepreneurs manage their mindset while navigating their journey. We'll cover how to start a business using what you already know, ways to expand your business to generate additional revenue, and share tips on how to manage your business more effectively.
In today’s age of social media and being our authentic selves, where do we draw the line? How much of your life should be shared for public consumption? How do you decide what’s sharable and what you should keep to yourself?

In fact, she turned her journey, the ups and the downs of it, into a business that has served thousands of women entrepreneurs over the years.
