Navigating the ebb and flow of entrepreneurship requires an important skill: resiliency. 


And a little bit of grit plus recognizing that striving for perfectionism will always leave you unsatisfied because it’s impossible to achieve.  


Resiliency is understanding that sometimes things don’t always work out as planned but with an unwavering confidence in yourself and refusal to quit, you will always rise to the top.
