Teaching the youngins

Recently, a friend of mine asked me to speak to the New Leaders Council in DC about my business.  I'm not gonna lie, my first question was "what can I possibly tell these people?  I barely know anything myself!"  And my first instinct was to say no (not to mention I was supposed to go on at 9am . . . on a Saturday, no less!)

I told myself this was a favor to a friend and made myself go.  So I did it.  And I talked openly and honestly about the struggles of starting a business from scratch.  And I think I even said something useful to these SUPER accomplished people.  And it was kind of fun to talk about something I'm passionate about: women led businesses and international development.  Like Nike says: just DO it!!
