The biggest thing that we all have when we start a business is FEAR.
How do we put ourselves out there and show what we can do without pooping our pants in fear.
I totally get it. Holy SHIT do I get it. It took me forever and a day to get my shit together and just know that I was good enough to be able to get out there and be like “hey, I can help you!”.
Know that you are NOT alone in the fear.
Know that all those Entrepreneurs and Biz Women out there have felt the fear too. And chances are, they probably still do. I know that I do. But you learn to cope with you and own it anyway.
So how can you get over the fear?
- Baby Steps!
Launching your business is HUGE and you can really feel it too. It can be overwhelming. So, what you need to do is break down everything into small baby steps. Make sure each step has a actionable tasks and do it bit by bit. Commit to taking a step or two each day and then you wont feel like you are getting buried in the overwhelm.
- What are you afraid of?
Journal!!! Write out everything that you are afraid of, next to it write out what the worst thing that can happen from it. Are you scared of judgment? Scared of being rejected? Losing money? Really sit and think what is the worse result that can come of it if you put yourself out there. What are the chances are these scenarios actually happening? I’m going with slim pickins.
- Just be you
There is this new word that is trend going around in the business world. Which is just being ‘Authentic’. Find ways where you just put yourself out there by just being you. Share on social media, write a blog, do a video. Whatever represents YOU and putting yourself out there. DO THAT.
- Get a support team
No one should or wants to do this business gig alone. Join Facebook groups , hire a coach, get your friends and family on the support wagon. They will be there to encourage you, pick you up when you fall, help you face that fears and cheer you own when you smash it!
- Fix your marketing mindset
You are giving VALUE. You are not pestering or being a cheesy salesman. It is scary as hell to reach out to people, but you have to know that you are offering a valuable service and you can HELP those people. It’s not like you are going around asking for money with nothing in return. You are helping them thrive in their business.
- What is the diff. between FEAR and Intuition
Even though you feel like you are going to poop your pants with fear, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it. Some of the most amazing things are hidden behind the fear. Feeling uncomfortable is part of growing and up leveling in your business. If you feel like you are going to puke and your stomach is just saying HELL NO then chances are that is your intuition telling you not to go there. Learn to know the difference and know that it is normal and a good thing to feel a little uncomfortable.
You know that saying…. FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY.
