What difficulties did you encounter as a young female entrepreneur, and how did you handle them?
"One of the major difficulties I’ve encountered being a young female entrepreneur is having people doubt my business knowledge because of age. The industry is a very mature one, so it can be harder to get deals or collaborations if you are new and young. After running into this problem so many times, I decided that I would not give up, but instead better myself so that they had to give me a yes. I studied my industry in and out, I came up with new and innovative marketing strategies and used social media to build my own successful platform. One thing I took away from this, is that you don’t have to wait for another person or brand to validate you. You can use what you have to grow your business, and once they see it's successful on its own, they will have no problem doing business with you."
