One of the great things about being an entrepreneur is that we are free to be whoever we want to be. I started my forte into entrepreneurship at only 18 years old and struggled with overcoming the obstacle of my age at first. However, I quickly learned that I was able to present an image of whoever I wanted to be. I started dressing a lot more professionally for meetings and I carried myself in a different manner. When I was only 19, I had clients that would have pinned me at 30.
This is important for more than just overcoming obstacles of age. As entrepreneurs, we can paint an image of a grandiose version of ourselves and our companies. Don’t show people who you are, show them who you know you can be.
