When I was young, I did not think much about what my role model looked like until Disney’s Mulan came out. I was glued to the movie. I loved that I shared so many similarities with her: tomboyish personality, daring to dream big, daydreaming, sneaky, and long black hair. I was especially moved by the scene when she left her family to join the army in place of her father disguised as a boy.
I can tell when I lack sleep. I feel a bit disoriented, crave sugar, and start noticing random details around the room instead of focusing on what I wanted to do. Unfortunately, as a full time bootstrapping female entrepreneur, this scenario is far too familiar. When we choose to do something we are choosing not to do something else. When we say yes to everything we set ourselves up to not have the time to explore projects and opportunities that are more in alignment with our personal visions.
