This past week was one of those weeks for me. I questioned the work I
was doing, both on the web sites and on our crafts. I found myself wondering
if all my time and effort was worthwhile.
Would our new business provide
the income we needed? Is my work good enough for others to want to buy
or to read? These are only a few of the questions that ran through my mind.

my self-confidence, I went to the website to read quotes on confidence

to follow it through!
It Takes Time
Reflecting on my previous career, it took me 20 years to realize success.
I laughed at myself for thinking this new career would be a success in one year.
If I have realized anything from working on the wow4u website, and from
the experiences of my previous career, it is that success takes time,
persistence, determination, and most importantly, believing in yourself!
Your own mental attitude will determine your future.
