I also wanted to feature Kerry's story, as heard HERE in Episode 77 where she was interviewed by Wilson Kanaday. I love that they put her on the other side of the microphone during this episode so she could share her story. Even though Kerry and I have just recently met, I am finding her to be extremely inspiring. Even if you aren't interested in selling flags or buying flags, there is a ton of wisdom in her interview. Kerry and I have a lot in common, for instance, we both had several "side hustles" when we started our business before we went full time. I think this is one of the most important take aways and best business advice I can give any entrepreneur these days. Don't be so quick to quit your day job. When I first started Bella Vita I did everything possible to earn a dollar so that I could reinvest all my money back in to my business and then pay my personal bills with money from waiting tables or working at our local bead store.
I won't spend time giving any more advice or preaching here, just go listen to the interviews linked above.
