This past year has taught me so much about who I am, my business, my clients, and where I want to be. I love the passion we all share for our businesses. This blog is all about sharing my insights, my passion, my journey, and my learnings along the way to inspire and help other entrepreneurs on a similar journey. It can be lonely those first few years of starting your business and finding a way to connect and share our stories is what the sweet p hive is all about.
Did you know that Melissa means "bee" in greek? I always was drawn to bees (when I was a little girl my dad would help me hold and pet them! Cool, right?!?). When I started to think about names for this blog, I couldn't think of a better way to bring my own personal story to life! I started to look into the meaning of bees and I was amazed at what I learned.
Bees have a strong work ethic but they also stop to smell the roses each day. They represent the need to find balance between the two. A good reminder for those of us hustling to build our businesses. What good is the hustle if we don't stop to enjoy the journey or the rewards?
Aerodynamically bumble bees should not be able to fly... but they do! We all need to channel this mindset to move past our limitations and achieve our own successes, no matter what life throws at us. Where there is a will, there is a way!
The bee represents community, living and working together for a greater purpose. This really inspired me as an entrepreneur, to find my tribe, join other tribes, and work together to build communities that help each of us succeed in life and business.
Even writing this blog today is inspiring new ideas for how to live my story and reach new goals. I am so excited to learn more about your stories, and share our learnings, success, and challenges together.
The next blog is something I am very passionate about - Design! I have learned so much over the years and I will be sharing some fun tips with you. Stay tuned!
