Business is not easy. Working from the inside out is critical in building the mindset muscles that you will need to persevere the journey of entrepreneurship. Belief sometimes can be in and out. There is so much upfront work that needs to be done and unfortunately there is no compensation for it. You are in the development stage of entrepreneurship. Whether you are just starting, revamping or moving to the next level of your business, personal development is a critical practice throughout the business life cycle.
Having a community of like-minded women surrounding you who understand the ups and downs of entrepreneurship is what ASCEN is all about. We are there for one another in the good times and the bad time.
“Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender; it’s holy ground. There’s no greater investment.” ―Stephen Covey
Developing your business will start with creating Smart Goals and a clear picture of your mission. Learning the best strategies, systems and tools for your particular business comes with being in action and stepping outside of your comfort zone. At ASCEN we support one another in staying in action so that growth can occur. We understand that every step that you take in your business will strengthen you and bring you closer to your dream whether the step is successful or not. If the action step works, you are doing the "happy dance." If it does not work, you are learning. Both are successful positions to be in.
"To be successful, you have to have your heart in your business, and your business in your heart."
— Thomas Watson, Sr., former CEO, IBM
