“Follow that dream!” (11.15.18)

When you look into the mirror, Patricia Bokowski, do you look for what you love most? 
Do you look for me? 
Do you smile? 
Did you just ask, “Is there any other reason to look into a mirror?”

Follow that dream!

People always ask me.

What is the entrepreneur lifestyle?

Lets see.

Being an entrepreneur is NOT a job.

It’s a way of life!

It is a constant 24/7 hustle.

And the hustle is REAL!

It is most definitely not for everyone!

If you happen to be one of those people that need regularity in your life.

A regular schedule.

A weekly paycheck every week.

The entrepreneur life is definitely NOT FOR YOUโœ”โœ”โœ”

Yes, that’s the reality of being an entrepreneur.

You are ALWAYS working! 

For me, even going to the gym is for work.

In one way, shape or form, just about everything I do has something to do with business!

The thing is, you don’t really understand that part when you start.

At least I didn’t. 

I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when I first started.


Those first couple of years, I basically stumbled around.

I networked a lot.

Got my name out there.

Went to a whole bunch of seminars, classes, meetings, you name it!

Anything to help me grow my business. 

Trying to figure out works and what doesn’t. ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

What you want to do vs what you don’t!

After all, it is YOUR business.

So, you really only want to do the things that work AND that you like to do!

Here’s the thing.

You don’t really think about that when you start a business.

You just kind of think.

This is thing I want to do.

And this is how I’m going to do it.


Sometimes that works.



It doesn’t.

At that point.

You have two choices.

You can quit.

Which I do not recommend.


You switch the plan.

That’s right.

Don’t quit.

Figure out another way to get there.


In case no one has told you.

There are about a zillion way to get there.


Being the magical place.

The top of the mountain.

The block of gold.

It’s different for everyone.

But one thing is the same.

We are all hungry for it.

That’s why we do what we do.

This crazy entrepreneurial thing.

Be crazy enough to think you can succeed and you will!

Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to speak with other entrepreneurs.

And one thing we all agree on, you go through many emotions!


LIKE:   you will cry (alot),

You will be broke,

You will have self-doubt,.

You will want to give up. Don’t!!!๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

You will lose friends and relationships.

Yes, that’s something no one talks about, but totally true!

You will work many hours and not get paid one penny.

You will be giving up much of your time and energy for it. 

Then wonder if it’s worth it?

HINT:  It is!

So what’s the payoff of all this work?

No, it’s not money.๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡

It’s FREEDOM.๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰

The opportunity to make a living doing something you absolutely love is absolutely worth it!

To have the opportunity to follow your passion.

Do things you never thought possible, and so much more!

In the beginning, I wasn’t even sure it was for me. 

Those first few years were quite rocky. Stop waiting for Friday! (8.15.2020)

Only, I had no plan B, no exit strategy, it was all or nothing.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

That’s how you have to be. ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿ‘†

100% total commitment. 

Pure desire. 

Steel-focused vision.

That’s what it’s all about!


FACT: An entrepreneur would rather work 80 hours and make a dollar, than work 40 hours for someone else. 

You really do have to be half mad, and be totally fine with it!

As I said, it is NOT for everyone!


I talk to so many people who tell me they want to start a business,

Only they can’t because of ______ fill in the blank. 

I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when I first started.

Only, that didn’t stop me.

I knew one thing, I was going to make it work, one way or another.

Fierce determination and daily persistence got me a whole lot further than smarts!

When you have that kind of determination, you are UNSTOPPABLE๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ


No one can stop you, except you!

You really have to have total faith in what you are doing!

An iron-clad decision you make with yourself that you CAN do this. 

Even on the days that you are doubting yourself!


Kermit the Frog๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ

That is most definitely true. 

Everyone, and I mean everyone, will try to talk you out of whatever it is you are trying to do. 

Don’t listen to them!



Henry Ford got it right. โ˜โ˜โ˜

It’s all comes down to your attitude. 

If you think you can, you will keep thinking of new ways to make it happen. 

And, if you think you can’t, you’ll think of all the reasons why ๐Ÿ™  

Your attitude determines your future!

Kermit the Frog๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ

Here’s what you need!

And it doesn’t cost a cent.

You need determination, will-power and enthusiasm.

If you have those three things, you can make anything happen. 

Otherwise, you’ll be sitting on the couch watching Jerry Springer and eating Doritos. 

And no one wants to see that.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ


I tell everybody, I’m going to be working on this until the day I die.

No retirement.

No giving up.

Nope, this is it.

I will just thinking of new ways to market, improve and better my business.

Well, actually, I’m past the building a business stage.

I am well onto building my empire!

I’ve come this far and put in this much work, so that’s where I’m heading!

I tell people all the time, I am building my empire. 

And I mean it!

Ride or die, my motto!
