“As an entrepreneur with three businesses and a family, I understand the overwhelming fears, the sheer exhaustion from fighting each day and the temptation to give up. What helped me overcome those critical moments was not what I did, but remembering WHY I was doing these things. We don’t give up because we are stressed from overworking. We give up because we lose our purpose, we forget our ‘WHY?’. From experience, I can tell you that if you can remember your WHY during those difficult times, you will not only change the way you approach problems but also find the courage to stay on purpose and create life changing moments. The concept of purpose or finding out “WHY” and the motivation behind our choices is something that is incredibly important for me, and something that I am reminded of every day with Alyfe as we support organizations of all sizes in finding their WHY.” –Kay Lakhi
