Start up fears can cause your business to come to a crippling halt.
I am speaking from experience! Fears are the real deal and can create havoc, stress, and anxiety in both your personal and professional life. I have been there and most people in the start up phase have had some type of fear!
Fear held my company back for the first year! I didn’t even realize that it was fear! I thought it was a lack of motivation or not being able to clearly lay out long term plans.
However, the real issue was that I had underlying fears. Fears that were feeding into not being able to schedule out goals! Fears that created a lack of motivation. Fears that left me feeling inadequate!
If you are launching your own business or feeling like you are “stuck” in your business… this blog post is for you.
I am laying out 5 common fears in business and how to start overcoming them today.
Start-Up Fear Number 1: Where To Even Start?
If you are in dream up or the start up phase, not knowing where to start can be debilitating. There are so many tasks, activities, projects, deadlines, the list goes on. Which items come first? What do I need to research to make an educated decision? I have been there…
To overcome this fear, I want you to look at other people who are successful in your field. The people that are achieving your dreams, goals or aspirations.
Look at how they laid out their company and what their overall strategy was. Contact them and ask if you could seek advice and ask them a few questions.
If they say no, you can do a little investigating on your own. Study their business and analyze what steps they took to create their brand.
