Does a fear of failure hold you back from taking big, bold steps in your business — or from launching altogether? You’re not alone! As entrepreneurs, we feel pressure from ALL sides. We want to impress not only our customers, but our fellow entrepreneurs, friends, and family. An offer falling flat can make us feel as though we’ve lost credibility in the eyes of our audience, which can lower our confidence… and even make us start to think about giving up.
If you want to achieve the success that you deserve, you need to be able to work through that fear… and come out the other side stronger than before!
My guest Stephanie Muskat is the founder of the mental health community Compassion in Caregiving. When Stephanie launched her first group program, she got the response that no entrepreneur wants to get… crickets. Stephanie could have let this kill her confidence. Instead, she sat back and followed my #1 piece of advice when it comes to fear of failure — and wound up feeling even better about her business than before her launch!
