Maria’s Biggest Challenges as an Entrepreneur
 
Inconsistency

One of the biggest challenges as an entrepreneur she has had would be overcoming the fear of inconsistency.

When you are working as an entrepreneur, you can feel like you’re always on your toes, trying to make sure that everything is running smoothly and nothing falls through the cracks. Especially as it relates to finances. Not having a stable income, especially in the beginning stages of entrepreneurship, can bring on a major feeling of fear to the point of wanting to retreat or give up. This is a challenge she overcame by believing in herself and what she had created.

 
Balance

Finding balance in the midst of building a business can be tough. There is so much happening around you and your to-do list feels endless. Building a business requires a lot of time and energy—and not everyone has enough of either resource at their disposal when they first start in business. To combat this problem, Maria recommends that new entrepreneurs make sure their personal lives aren’t being neglected by their businesses (or vice versa). If you’re pushing yourself too hard during work hours then there’s no way you’ll have enough energy left over when it comes time for family obligations later on in life; likewise, if all your free time gets eaten up by business instead of family activities then there won’t be any left over when it comes time for work either!

 
Forgetting your mission

With all of the challenges, stress, and ebbs and flows of being an entrepreneur, it can be easy to lose sight of your mission. Why are you doing this? Why did you start your business? Combatting this challenge requires a lot of intentionality with every decision you make. Thinking back to you why and knowing what is and isn’t aligned with it; that’s how you continue to build a business that fulfills you.
