Community Over Competition

I think one of the biggest lies you hear as an entrepreneur, and as a woman in general, is that life is a competition. Many assume that nice people finish last, that it's a dog-eat-dog world and that to get ahead and succeed you have to beat out everyone around you. But, I've found that the opposite is true.

As a business owner, one of the biggest encouragements in what I do is having other #girlbosses around me who build me up and speak truth into me. They give me practical tips, sound advice, and a listening ear.

Two of those women are pictured in the photo above. Alison (middle) owns Jules & James Boutique, a successful and women-empowering clothing store. Megan (left) owns Fever Performing Arts, a premier dance studio. Both of these women are hardcore boss babes who motivate, inspire and encourage me in this crazy fun journey. They are both local to my hometown, but they are not my competitors.

Yes, despite what the expectation would say, these women are not my competition. They are my community. They are my friends, sisters, and fellow entrepreneurs, and they seriously rock.

I will always choose community over competition. I believe in working together to empower the women in our small region of Georgia, and across the world.

Right now, we are currently hosting a HUGE giveaway together on all of our Instagrams! Head to @julesandjamesboutique or @feverperformingarts to find out all the rules and deets, but you have the chance to win a $150 Visa gift card, $50 J&J cash, a $50 Pin it Co. gift card, and a free month of classes at Fever Performing Arts!

Don't miss out on such an easy opportunity to win these incredible prizes! 

And don't forget boss babes: they're your community, not your competition. And if your community is anything like mine, they are seriously awesome.
