I am interested in how you started your business and what kind of support you found as you were getting started.?

Well, first of all, when I read your question, I immediately sent a link to Patrick for the main line. Excuse me, Main Street vegan Academy, which is the brainchild of Victoria Moran someone who's very well known and respected in the plant-based Arena and she teaches you how to start a business and she has great tips for teaching everyone how to pursue their their dreams and wishes. So I think that touching base with Victoria would be helpful. and then you know, I know a lot of people who are who have business plans and they have coaches and all kinds of other things and you know, I think sometimes employing your common sense and making A business plan is one way to start to start and then the other thing that I find very helpful. It's called a SWAT SWOT analysis. Where you make a what you take a piece of paper much like this gigantic Post-It note that you know, I love and you break it into four and you take one quadrant. Well, that would be your strengths. the other one would be your weaknesses the other one would be see others who are doing what you are doing and then the tea would be who it stands for threat. But who else would be in your Arena so make a SWOT analysis. And if you have strong s for strengths that tells me that you're ready to pursue what it is that you like to do. And this just did I've been doing this kind of work for well about 10 years and Next week. I'll be launching my website it took me 10 years because I thought oh, you know Instagram is great. Oh, you know Facebook is great. But lots of times I've met people who have asked me. What's your website and having a website I think will be helpful. I'll let you know when it launches. It's called well-planted by Char Nolan and it's primarily resources and personal stories and a recipe here and there and other things that I like to do, but follow your heart follow your dream what you're meant to do and what you're meant to serve will happen and I believe that with all of my heart and you know vision boards help. Also, I'm a big a big plan or a vision boards and I make them every three months so that I can upgrade them. And the one I have hanging up here on my wall has put yourself first self-care 100% healthy the power of positivity and Oh, the best thing is know your limits. So I think that sort of tapping into your own resources and finding out what it is that you want to do and You know, there's that graphic. Maybe you've seen it where it's an arrow going up and it says success but the real way to success is it's a wriggly line where you go up and down and around and you just have to keep working doing what you love but do not give up.
