In Blood, Sweat, and Goals, Neva Williamson shares the hard lessons learned becoming a full-time entrepreneur and escaping the traditional 9–5 workday. Her passion is helping people who struggle with creating additional income options because of limited connections or access to business loans to get started.
Most aspiring entrepreneurs who dream of leaving a job for the excitement of running their own business never actually do. The few that try fail more often than not. After years of too little pay and too much work, Neva Williamson unshackled herself from the depressing repetition of a successful corporate career to set her own course as an entrepreneur. Along the way she drew a roadmap for other entrepreneurs who seek clarity, confidence and energy to change their lives. Approachable, conversational and inspiring, Williamson’s words can help you if you are stuck and reassure you if you are wavering. If you need a boost to your entrepreneurial spirit; if you want to hear from someone who knows what it’s like to navigate between work and family while rolling with the punches, here is a truth that is raw, honest and real, spoken from the heart. Blood, Sweat, and Goals lays out a path to follow not only for building a profitable business, but also for a complete and balanced personal life.
