We’re so proud of our Fellow Sarah Hernholm.
What is your best advice to a younger entrepreneur hoping to follow in your footsteps?
I remember when I was starting out, I felt the pressure to have the answers and know everything. It felt like I needed to overcompensate for being young and “green”. BUT this approach of acting like you know everything doesn’t serve you in the long run. You know what does? Humility, and the willingness to keep learning. Myself, and many of my peers, are more inclined to support, help, and even invest in, young entrepreneurs who have a great hustle, mixed with a big dose of humility. Plus, even those of us who are considered more experienced don’t know everything. We don’t have all the answers, but what I think a lot us do well is we listen and keep learning.
So my advice is to stay hungry, keep hustling, but above all else, express humility and curiosity … always, and in all ways.
