SE 2: 1:- Jennifer Puno - #CREATIVEGIRL: Quit your job at 27 , build creative businesses whilst travelling across the globe!
Welcome to the 1st episode and 2nd season of #WEARYOURDREAMS, hosted by Alice Oluyitan and featuring inspirational conversations with girls in business.
This week, Alice has a chat with Jennifer Puno, aka Punodostres! Puno is the ultimate creative girl. She has started many businesses, including Map and ilovecreatives, which is a curated community of creative people. Puno also dabbles in photography and styling, and she even helps other businesses with their branding and social strategies!
Here's what we learned from Puno:
It's okay if you don't know what you want to do with your life. Take time to figure out what you're passionate about because that will lead you to your ultimate dream!
It's super helpful to set measurable goals for yourself, especially when you're growing your business. For example, if you want to get 10,000 Instagram followers, make a plan for how you'll gain more followers each day. Once you've made a plan, it'll be much easier to accomplish your goals!
Now that you've planned it all out, you've got to be consistent about accomplishing those goals. Do something every day that will get you closer to your dream!
Things don't always work out the way you expect them to, especially when you're growing your business. But it's super important to stay grounded and stay positive!
