I want to have an open and honest conversation with you this week about fear. Now, I’ve talked about this before, but I’ve been thinking about it differently, and seeing it show up a bit differently in you, lately. I want to call this out!
You Are Your Own Worst Enemy
You are your own worst enemy, especially when it comes to getting the success you desire in your business. I know a lot of you have fears about becoming visible, and having the spotlight shine on you. Believe it or not, I, too, suffer from this having grown up a very, very, and I mean very, shy child! I know, as a new business owner, you might be lacking confidence, and this too, is affecting the way you want to show up in the world.
I understand! Those are real fears. However, with the right support and guidance, I know that you can show up and shine! So, this week, I really want you to think about where, and how, fear is showing up differently for you. How is fear affecting your business? Really dive down and ask those questions.
You Got This!
So, some of the things I’ve personally noticed with my own clients, is that they 1) tend to obsess over making their website perfect. It’s important yes, but sometimes you just need to take action because done is better than perfect! Sort of a tag onto this perfectionism is 2) trying to polish things up and having everything well-presented. By the way, I’ve made these mistakes too, so I totally get it!
Another thing is that a lot of you who are just getting started in this side hustle have your ‘real job’ to go to, whether that be at a company you’re not passionate about, or being a full-time caretaker in your household. So, sometimes you’re not as free as you’d like to be, to work on this side hustle 40-hours a week, but that’s okay! It doesn’t have to take 40-hours a week to get things done. However, it does take some planning and scheduling. So, if you value your business, make time for it, even if it’s not as many hours as you want. Because remember, if you don’t actively and consciously make time for it, it’ll never get done!
