You’ve just got to believe in yourself and what you’re doing. Have a clear vision of what you want to achieve, not let anything get in your way and work your ass off.
It’s easy in the beginning of starting something no matter what it is, a job, a company, a movement even, to compromise your principles and listen to those people who say you’ve got to do it this way. Why? Because that’s the way it’s always been done. Well, how are we ever going to move forward, develop, innovate, create if we carry on in the same way that those before us have? Whatever we do in this life we need to be pushing the boundaries, constantly questioning and not accepting someone else's truth or the nay-sayers that think it can’t be done.
Elon Musk, the craziest entrepreneur of them all (If you don’t know who he is then find out!) said,
"I think it is possible for ordinary people to choose to be extraordinary."
So there you have it, it’s just a choice you’ve got to make. Find something that you’re passionate about and go after it, if you’re passionate enough you’ll succeed.
That’s what we’re doing here at Yuhme, we’re passionate about creating innovative products that also contribute to helping those that, through no fault of their own, have been born into a life that does not even provide them access to clean water. If you want to understand the problem that people face in the Central African Republic then just read the blog post below from Water for Good. Such inequalities should not exist in our World, it is unacceptable and it is our mission to contribute to this change. By you buying our water bottle you also contribute to this change, as well as having a positive impact on climate change by buying a water bottle that is CO2 negative. We are the only water bottle that can claim that. Now that’s what you call 2 for the price of 1 or is that 3?!
