Getting your first major feature is always the hardest so I am beyond thankful that @huffpost has brought my story (link in bio) to their millions of daily readers. It's crazy to think that at the age of 21 I have done enough to get a feature with the prestigious Huffington Post, I know most people go through life without such accomplishments so I am humbled to been able to get this done so early in life, but I know this is just the beginning. I made goals for myself as an entrepreneur that are so large that I can't simply stop here, I am only going to floor the gas peddle even further. I look back now and remember when I launched the company at 19 and emailed hundreds of reporters to get article like this out, and I was only greeted with laugher and they told me yes you're young but now you have to make real sales to have a chance (I had less than 10k sales at the time)... so I put off my dream of having my story in the media and got tunnel vision on skyrocketing sales. 3 months ago my business writing professor asked me why I wasn't pursuing traditional media and I answered I'm only focused on sales right now, she said you have enough to get your story out there. I thought maybe she's right, and here we are a few weeks later. Never stop when you're told no, instead work so hard that your success becomes hard to ignore. Everyone wants the headline, but no one wants to put the work in. This article shows that hard work, and young ambition is rewarded and can be done by anyone. Don't be scared to put up a fight and make your dreams a reality.
