    Business Tip of the Week:
    Despite the fear, focus on the REWARD.
    Go for it! When starting a new venture, just go for it despite the fear that it may not work out. You must adopt the mindset that the entire journey is a large experiment and failing is not an option, because through the "failure" comes learning and growth. Noor Hibbert states, "Focusing on the rewards instead of the fear is the real key to success."
