I want to thank you for inviting me to the NAWBO business event. I enjoyed Jan Long's story. She was very inspiring and spoke to me as a young person wanting to be an entrepreneur and wanting to run my own business. I learned about the concept of the risk of change vs. the risk of regret.

Many of the women spoke about the pivotal moment in their lives, where they were faced with having to make a decision, if they were going to stay safe and secure at their corporate jobs or if they were going to take that leap of faith into starting their businesses.

The film “Dream, Girl,” got me thinking about whether I would rather stay safe and work for others or if I'd rather be uncomfortable pushing to start a business.  These are real questions I must answer if I’m going reach my dreams and goals. I honestly don't know what my business will be exactly or how I will get there, but I know exactly what I want my life to be. I am willing to put in the work to get the success I want.

NAWBO is a great organization that connects, supports, and celebrates women in business all over the country.

Thank you, Jayzhia
