Boss Like A Lady – Women Entrepreneur Series – Lisa Congdon, The Illuminator
To celebrate Women’s History Month, I am creating a limited hand-lettered and illustrated series of some women making history. These women own their own creative businesses and make them successful despite many obstacles, including their own occasional self-doubt. I hope they inspire you to make a little history of your own!
What is your greatest mistake? My greatest mistake was assuming someday I’d arrive at perfection if I just worked hard enough.
What is the best advice you ever received? The best advice I ever received was from my mom as a kid: stay focused on your own path.
What is the best source of inspiration? Travel and adventure.
What do you do when you get discouraged? I remember that struggle is actually my friend.
What do you do when you doubt yourself? I eat lots of chocolate.
