AZF: What motivates you to keep going amidst the challenges that come with being an entrepreneur?

AZF: What’s one piece of advice you’d give to a young entrepreneur who is just starting out?
TB: Don’t stop even when it gets hard. Keep showing up for yourself & others you work with. Baby Steps, stay consistent, have faith that you will succeed, and don’t be afraid to talk about your business with everyone you meet and seek advice from others that have gone before you.
