633 Myoshia Boykin - Anderson: Imperfect Action
Why Doubt is Just a Trick, and How to Grow Your Self-Belief
There are silver linings in any cloud, big or small, and the best entrepreneurs instinctively know that when we’re in the middle of a storm, sunshine is on the way.
That is, as long as we’re prepared to be persistent in taking “imperfect action” and learning along the way.
Many successful entrepreneurs experience adverse circumstances and challenges along the way because the journey of innovation itself is one of constant change, roadblocks to traverse, and iterative learning.
Myoshia Boykin-Anderson started her first business as a single mom of a 6-year-old with no savings and no college degree after losing her job when the company she worked for closed the division she served. In that moment she saw an opportunity: Why not serve the clients left behind by the closure that cost her job?
After 9 months of “no’s” and what Myoshia calls her persistent and “imperfect action”, she launched her first business and never looked back.
She went on to build a multi-seven-figure IT consulting firm named by Inc Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. She’s the CEO and founder of AndTech Solutions, providing custom application development and other technology services to some of the top U.S. companies and organizations.
