“A business is a vehicle and that vehicle has to have wheels. You have to have all the working parts in order to make it work for you.”
“You should create your own path, create your own goals and, for every goal, you have to have some action steps to accomplish it.”
“Where you are today is a direct result of what you’ve been doing for the past 5 years.”
“You can’t give up on yourself, you just have to keep moving.”
Having trouble staying persistent in your business? Karwanna shared these ideas to get you going:
1) When you have a goal, the mere fact that you thought it means it’s possible.
2) You’ll never know what might have happened if you give up too soon.
3) Not everything will happen overnight, but if you’re persistent, it will happen.
