A bright new day to all of you,

Have you ever wondered what ‘perseverance‘ actually means, and why our approach to it so very important to life in general, and our journey as an entrepreneur?

Our guest shares about her inspiration to start a business and offers memorable gems of encouragement with you and I.

If you could do with a message on perseverance shared with grace, then listen HERE {3:39} or continue reading.

Without further ado…

“My inspiration for coming up with this business really stemmed from a passion for nail technology. I always loved to have my nails done and I actually enjoy polishing my own nails – it is quite relaxing.


These coupling of things caused me to pursue a nail course. When I did the course, it really was to satisfy that desire of wanting to learn as it related to the world of nail art, and out of that, Nails ExQuisite was born. The business services both females and males.

Going through this whole process of business and growing a business – sometimes it can be quite frustrating.

I just want to encourage you, ladies, as you traverse on this path of growth and development particularly in your business, and even personally to…

maintain perseverance

Most of us are familiar with the word ‘perseverance.’ Maybe it makes you think about someone who has been relentless in pursuit a particular goal or someone who stays true to their diet on the holidays  – you have your own personal idea of what perseverance is – you are the one on your relentless pursuit of a particular goal, and

you are persevering

The Greeks give us a little more insight into the original language and meaning of that word. The word translated means ‘cheerful‘ or ‘hopeful endurance‘ or consistency.

Enduring with cheer

It is one thing to keep going no matter what. It is something more beautiful to do so cheerfully and hopefully.

As we pursue that thing that God has placed in our hands, may we have that cheerful and hopeful endurance and consistency, so that our gift and our talent will be something beautiful as we release it to our client and our customers.”

James 1:2-4 “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

“Let us be filled with cheer – let us be hopeful in endurance and consistency, as we pursue our purpose.” Faith Bascombe (owner of NailsExQuisite)
