Before I started Brevity, I read inspiring founder stories, and each story would make me increasingly more curious about the entrepreneurial path.
I was curious about what exactly went into taking a business from idea to launch, and I wanted to experience it first-hand.
So when I got the idea for the Do Anything Jacket, curiosity propelled me to take the leap, despite how terrified I was.
However, after the initial leap, I continued to encounter fear again, and again. Oftentimes, the fear would show up as self-doubt, then turn into perfectionism, and ultimately result in procrastination.
Curious about why, I delved deep into research about mindset and habits, and embarked on an unexpected personal growth journey.
While you could say curiosity has taken me on a windy path, I believe it's given me the opportunity to broaden my horizons and meet incredible people like you.
Thank you for being part of the Brevity chapter, and hope you'll join me as this next chapter unfolds.
