Hey Girl Baus! 

Entrepreneurship can be very rewarding but it can also have its challenges. Sometimes you are overwhelmed by how much work you have to get done. Many times you have to create a bulk amount of content to keep your readers engaged, check emails, complete follow up tasks and even restock your inventory. There are even times when you just don't know what to do.

You won't be able to party all the time even though you are still trying to maintain a healthy diet and social life. Let's not forget about those late nights and early mornings when you are up creating and you get no sleep at all. Then you still have to get up and go to work or class the next day!

 

Last but not least, you may have many friends and family members who don't support you. You may even have people who find any reason to tell you to "GET A REAL JOB." Even though your business is your REAL JOB, you live and breathe your brand and many people just don't understand that. Everyone will not understand your vision that is why it is your idea, dream, goal or business and no one else's!

Business Bestie /Baus Babe: Your business bestie or boss babe knows the ins and outs of running a business. She is running her own business and you are running yours as well. You all connect, collaborate and inspire each other to keep going to bring your brands to the next level. Whether you all are brainstorming over brunch or reading your favorite book, you two push each other to strive for excellence.

Corporate Chick: This friend is not a business owner! She decided to take the corporate route. She’ s happy to know her checks are coming every two weeks on the 1st and 15th! Nonetheless, she is still supportive and when she’s not working you all have a great time catching up and having fun! This friend allows you to have a great outlet when you don’t want to think about work and all the things you have to do.

These are my top 3 ! Which friend are you? Feel free to comment below.

Best,
