Being a small business owner has a lot to do with finding that extra umph to complete the tasks before you so that business may go on. We wear so many hats. And let’s not even talk about our personal life hats! Shonda Rhimes – star writer for television and screen (and director and producer) who has taken the world by storm with the tantalizing dramas of ABCs Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal delivered one of the most realest commencement speeches I’ve ever had the joy of witnessing. And that’s saying something because there is another speech that comes in a very close second ;). So, please watch. Be encouraged. And for you other Mompreneurs, turns out she doesn’t have a special cape after all! Enjoy.

Shonda’s speech is from 1:41:22 – 2:04:23. Fast-forward to get to the best part.
