He also explains the significance of thinking ahead on whatever things you’re currently doing to prepare for the future. She added the importance of having a high tolerance, flexible thinking, and mental agility on risks and failures whenever starting a business.

Moreover, according to her, in order to thrive and succeed in your business, humility and listening to your employees are key. This is the ability to open up difficult discussions before it is truly difficult, and planning how to act, and elaborate on their comfort level.
