Business Confessional

Confession:
I’m scared. Worried. Unsure.

A lot of the time when it comes to business stuff.

Especially as I prepare for today’s Q+A call.
Especially when I think about the new year and all the new stuff I’m planning to try.
Especially when I think about biggifying (that’s Havi’s word).

Confession:
I don’t know what I’m doing a lot of the time.

I have an idea, I put it into motion.
Whether the Learn to Knit Kit or the Year of Yarn or today’s call.

An idea comes to me and I run with it, while I have the courage.

But often, during that sprint from new idea to finished product, I second-guess, doubt, wonder.

I wanted to share that today, as so many of us are thinking of the new year. You may be plotting to quit your dayjob or trying follow your big dream and I wanted to remind you that these big things often come with fear or doubt.

It’s a step in the process, not a sign you need to turn back.
If anything, it’s a sign you’re on the right path, that you’re really reaching towards awesomeness.

So today, if you’re feeling a bit of overwhelm at the awesomesauce of the coming year, I want to let you know: you’re not alone.

In fact, you’re right on schedule.

    It's so true for me too. If I get an idea and don't act on it right away, I overthink and guilt or scare myself into not doing it. This also happens if I DO act immediately and don't keep moving.

    LOVE this post! Every budding entrepreneur should read it… It takes courage to follow your dreams and turn them into reality.

    Especially love this part:

    “An idea comes to me and I run with it, while I have the courage.

    But often, during that sprint from new idea to finished product, I second-guess, doubt, wonder.”

    Hope you had a great Q & A!

    I red in a book a quote. It is very inspiring and I try to consider it sometimes. It says:

    “Feel the fear but do it anyway”

    and the next great quote, cosequence of the first:

    “You can not fail. You can only learn and grow”

    regards
