“A rose started off a bud, a bird started off an egg, and a forest started off a seed.”
― Matshona Dhliwayo
Dell started in a dorm room. So did Facebook and Google. HP, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and Disney were all operated out of garages at their early stages. Under Armour began its existence in a basement. Virgin Group and Epic Games started as basement operations too. The first Harley Davidson motorcycle was built in a shed.
Don’t let yourself be held back by embarrassment about your starting point. That’s just the beginning of your story. The most important part of your story is what you’re creating and the people you’re empowering. Keep going!
