Has it been a smooth road? Of course, not! Every venture is not a smooth road but that is the beauty of it! Other than the obvious many NO until you get the yes! My biggest struggle was to always get the best quality with minimum investment. It took a lot of creativity, stubbornness and asking the right questions many times until I got what I wanted. My biggest advice would be to keep working always no matter the pay, money would come on the way.
