Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. It’s often messy, frustrating, and overwhelming.  And most people will bow out before they “succeed.” Because they don’t have the entrepreneurial grit and tenacity it takes to build a business that will grow and last.  It can NOT be done perfectly. And it will be messy.  Because no matter how much you pre-plan and prepare, there will be obstacles.     The product launch you spent 40 hours a week for 6 months preparing for fails.  Your computer melts down as you’re backing up your files and you lose everything for your business.  You hedged everything on the loan you didn’t get, and you can’t pay rent.  How you handle the inevitable obstacles will make or break your business.   So what do you do?  Do you respond like a deer in headlights and shut down? Taking forever to decide what to do next. Because you worry that every decision might be the wrong choice.  Do you come up with solutions quickly, but can’t decide which one is best? And even when you do decide you second guess whether it was the right choice.  Does it feel like nothing you do ever works? And it makes you question whether you should keep going.  Perhaps you melt down and get crazy emotional, taking days to process and get over it before you can even deal with it. Or maybe you’re a super quick action taker who doesn’t “think it through” which causes you to go down the wrong rabbit hole a lot. And you end up having to backtrack and clean up more messes.      The reality is, that most people don’t deal with obstacles well. And for most people, that’s fine. Because they can tailor their life to avoid most obstacles. But as an entrepreneur, you can’t do that. They are inevitable.  And your ability to handle these obstacles in a constructive way will be a MAJOR factor in the growth of your business.  Because doing it wrong affects your business exponentially as it grows. So even if poorly dealing with obstacles is not having much of an effect now, it will in the future. Unless of course, you don’t want to grow your business. (Which is totally okay, it’s not for everyone.)   One of the reasons I love doing my podcast (Be the Wolf: be who you were born to be) is that I get to share stories and tips about overcoming obstacles. This week I talk with True Crime Author, Pepper Anne, who had to overcome unspeakable obstacles to finish her book The Notorious Texas Swindler. She is a true example of the entrepreneurial grit and tenacity it takes to bring your gifts to the world and succeed in business.   Connect to Genea: Free Gift: The 3 Secrets to Maximize Profit and Impact (that the business gurus won’t tell you) : http://ideservethisgift.com/ Website: http://geneabarnes.com/ Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/genea-barnes/ Facebook business: https://www.facebook.com/geneabarneselevate/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/geneabarnes/  TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@geneabarnes YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/geneabarnes   Connect to Pepper Anne Website: https://www.pepperanneauthor.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/PepperAnneGetsTheScoop Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/PepperAnneAuthor/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/pepper_author Tiktok: https://www.tiktok.com/@pepperanneauthor  Bio:  Pepper Anne is a 7th generation Texan, where she and her family currently reside. She gained experience working alongside private investigators where she learned to find detailed information about stories of interest and eventually expose their cover-ups.    Pepper's dream is to bring to light the story behind some of the nation's biggest true stories that we've all heard about, and she is making sure that we hear all sides to the story, so that we may make our own decisions.
