How the entrepreneur cuts costs is strategic and experience discerned. While utilizing funds for needs and basic requirements wants go out the window at this time. If it is not mandatory it is not essential. I found that my life experiences had prepared me for my entrepreneurship journey. I learned some new tricks along the way, but I had foundational and fundamental requirements.
I was already a cost saving minimalist expert. I gained experience in renovation, upkeep, and repair with the purchase of my first condo. Minor construction and upkeep were delightful in my estimation and I loved nursing and birthing a project. I scoured The Restore for leisure on the weekends. Sipping herbal tea wearing Uggs, baseball caps, second hand furs and oversized Ray Bans. I sought out high end donated kohler toilets, quartz, and artistic tiles. I developed pricing and comprehension techniques and most importantly I formed relationships and contacts. I encountered my share of hiccups and blessings along the way, both helping me to become the builder, and entrepreneur I am today. I take calculated risks and stand firmly in a relationship, faith, communication, and obedience to The King of Kings. I believe firmly in justice and order as such I will review poor service and attitudes.
It became clear to me how to handle people and issues that arise. Treating others as I would desire to be treated is my preference. Delays were bound to happen, but how would you go through them? Would you blow your top or would you allow conflicts to simmer and be settled amicable? There were times I worked with “professionals” that needed to retire or some had bust out of the gate at maverick, lightening speed. We are always going to be on a learning path, however having experience under your belt counts tremendously and knowing when to rest is essential.
The entrepreneurship journey is developing you, but do not allow it to discourage you. The better you steer the more places the journey will allow and afford you to go – always count the cost and the blessings and you will soar. Today with my board members, team, and affiliates we manage both FOR and NON profits – in the North and South while I am simultaneously gearing up for a pre med track in Nauropathic Medicine this summer.

28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,
30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
