Blog #5: One step forward, Two steps back

“In the process of working on your dreams you are going to incur a lot of disappointment, a lot of failure, a lot of pain, a lot of set-backs, and a lot of defeats.

Oftentimes, we feel because everything isn’t happen now for us now. We should quit. Because nobody is paying our ideas,  small businesses, or even blogs any mind we should give up.

Our dreams will be painful. Think about it like this: Say you have a favorite
