So, if you know me… you know I’ve been on this journey of full time entrepreneurship for close to 4 years now (and mannnn, has it been a journey). I get questions about how this journey has been for me and how I got to this point. Well, a little over a year ago I wrote an Ebook and recorded a video entitled, Her Journey: A Road to Entrepreneurship explaining everything.
