When you listen to this episode you'll learn the importance of tenacity but some of the other things Kellee did right were;
- Finding community - Kellee has talked about this many times but it's so important to find a like-minded group of people who are doing similar things to you and who understand the struggles you face, these can be online but it's also nice to find a physical community if you're able.
- Getting mentorship - This can be in the form of free Youtube tutorials, paid programs where you are learning a skill or tool, or mentorship through coaching or joining a mastermind. Be open and willing to grow and learn, it is this way that you will learn the skills needed to run your business.
- Be consistent and show up - this can mean different things at different times of your journey but keep showing up and showing who you are. You are your brand. You can change your platforms but keep showing up. Consistency in visibility is everything.
- Be willing to be different. Be willing to try things. As her father would remind her, If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
