#2: Andrea Slinde, founder of Golden Root:

We chatted with with Andrea, founder of Golden Root ($4K/month). In our interview, Andrea says:

The process of launching the business was a lot like putting together a puzzle with a couple pieces always missing. It may feel like you need more of the details ironed out before you can start, but I assure you that starting is the most crucial step in learning more concrete details about your concept.

Additionally:

Your vision is a flame that you hold in your hands. It is your responsibility to protect your vision, refine your vision, and communicate your vision to others. You are obligated to keep the flame alive by sharing it with others.

Further:

Becoming more focused on solutions has helped alter the way I think and act, and as a result, I have been more capable of welcoming the support and advice that people are willing to give.
