A little over a year ago, I would have never pictured where I am standing today. It has been an amazing, blessed, hard, and surprising year. Starting a company is extremely hard and having the tenacity to go at it again day after day with the same passion baffles even me!
Of course I would be selfish in this blog post and encourage you to come to NewCo and attend my session. We’re presenting Sushi Zushi!
Let’s put this in a different perspective, to pass judgement on this woman or man in the supermarket is the same as seeing a woman always walking with her head down and engaging in a series of abusive relationships without taking the time to realize that she grew up with a mom who called her ugly since birth and told her she would never amount to anything. This young woman believes she is ugly because the people who matter most to her have told her this her whole life. This is all she knows about herself and this is how she will engage with the world. She feels beaten down in life, tried a customer service job but got fired for not smiling, so she can’t even afford a hair brush… We all know that to rebuild self-esteem it takes time, but it requires tools and better vision and a hair brush helps. She can’t just hear it from you and only use a mirror and brush when visiting your house, she has to own one of her own and preferably a talking mirror with an inscription that says, “Hello Beautiful” when she looks at it. Over time, she will say “Hello Beautiful” to herself before the mirror says it.
