WRITTEN BY: JENNIFER STROUT, FOUNDER OF MOTIVATEU
I had so many ideas since I was a young child and over the years I would see them come to life through others.
But I would shrug it off because I thought, oh well, I’ll never do it myself.
I didn’t know why.
I just knew I wouldn’t.
I continued with this narrative, yet it made me increasingly uncomfortable.
I started to become resentful of the idea that it couldn’t be me.
Then one day I dropped back on LinkedIn, I hadn’t signed in for years. And I saw a ton of people I graduated college with as startup founders.
These were my peers. People I knew on a first name basis.
I realized at that point that there was literally no reason that it couldn’t be me. And that quickly turned into a determination that it would be me!
