Dawn’s startup life advice:
1. Trust yourself. It’s so important to go with your gut. If you believe that something is greater than you, trust it. We don’t listen all the time. Listen.
2. It’s definitely a marathon, not a sprint. You know, they say it takes 10 years to be an overnight success. That’s true. I’m living it now.
3. Understand that you need to pace yourself and celebrate every little every small victory.
4. Absorb every bit of information–every criticism, every rejection, every bit o praise, every perspective, and read as much possible.
