Entrepreneurial set back

In her entrepreneurial journey, her business which she had great passion towards had to close its doors. It was an internal collapse due to what she thinks either did not materialize as promised or late project finance thus leading to financial difficulties. Her business partners left and went ahead opening a competitor company. Her partners also used the social media and the press to accuse her falsely. Not only was she publicly defamed but also her family was physically threatened. This defamation got her into depression for about one year.
