Startup Stories: Moving Up and On

20131127_1820361

Tell us about your entrepreneurial product or service.
I am currently writing a book that talks about the things I have learned on this hard road called life. Growing up, I was usually kept in isolation except when at school or church and was abused and unloved by my family. At 18 I was then kicked out and spent two years living on the streets trying to survive. I was able to pick myself up and through hard work have reached the place where I now own my own home and live in relative comfort and security. Going through the things I did gave me many opportunities to learn lessons that are not usually learned in such a way or at such an age. I would like to share with others what I have learned. Hopefully I can inspire others who are suffering and show them that there is a way up and out, you just have to fight for it.

What inspired you to launch your business idea?
I would not have been able to turn my life into a success if it was not for the people who helped me along the way with bits of advice and wisdom. It was their kindness that gave me a chance and I would like to pay it forward.

What problem does your business or organization solve?
Too often we become trapped in our pain and don’t know how to escape. I am hoping that I will help people find the way out of their internal nightmare.

What has been your biggest challenge as an entrepreneur and how are you working to overcome it?
Because of the way I was raised I struggle with networking and establishing the proper business connections. I have difficulty expressing myself in such a way as to show my true intent, which can cause division. I attempt to overcome this by paying attention and learning from each encounter, but I am still far behind.

Give us one word that people might use to describe you.
Acceptance

How has Project Eve helped you and/or your business?
I have valued the inspiration and hope that is provided.

Give us an insider tip that relates to your industry or startup story.
No matter what anyone tells you, what they have done to you, they have done. It is not you and could never be you. Recognize this and walk away. The strength that it takes to do this will serve you well for the rest of your life.
