The confidence of knowing I can do it…

At least I know where to start and where to go from here. It’s possible. It’s not something completely out of reach for me. Or something only a certain type of person can do, or you need to have XYZ background in business and marketing to do this.

I can do it. I mean, everything has a risk to it, but at least knowing the tools and the support that can be there makes it feel more doable.

Imposter syndrome got you down?

Perfectionism keeping you from pursuing your business dreams?

Hell, maybe you’re just straight up depressed and anxious from getting through day-to-day life.

These aren’t personal flaws to overcome by pulling hard enough on your bootstraps.

These beliefs are baked into a system that consistently undermines and undervalues the work of women of color.

But I believe entrepreneurship is an act of resistance.

It is a way to free ourselves from depending on powerful white men to give us the money and respect we deserve for our work. It is a way to keep resources within our own communities instead of enriching a privileged exploiter. 

And it’s hard to do, especially when you don’t know what you don’t know.

But you don’t need a lot of money or power or privilege to start a business.

What you need is access to supportive resources and community.

Which is what I’ve built for you.

JYOB gave me more confidence!

It was reassuring to know I am on the right track and that my [business] canvas made sense. It also helped to get JDF’s opinion on the area I should focus on—speaking/teaching—which is what I wanted to focus on anyway. The video review was helpful and valuable easier than trying to schedule a time because I could watch it whenever.
