How To Overcome The Fear Of Starting Up Your Own Business

My mum and my sister and also one of my best friends have started up their own businesses in the last year which I think is amazing and I know it's something that a lot of people would love to do but are perhaps scared so I have gathered up some advice and tips I have learnt from them and thought I would share with you here.



Never doubt yourself

Believe in yourself.  You obviously started on this journey for a reason and know that you're good at whatever it is you're starting up so don't doubt yourself.  If you believe in you and what you're doing then others will too.

Go for it, no regrets

Try not to keep thinking what if.  If you don't take a leap of faith and go for it then you will always live in regret and that is way worse.

There will be failures

Of course not everything is going to go to plan but that's what makes it all worth it.  Things will go wrong but you will pick yourself and try again.

Be prepared to work hard

Don't expect it to come easy just because you're good at it.  You are going to have to work your socks off, long hours and possibly not earn much money in the beginning but eventually it will all pay off.

The best is yet to come

This is one of my favourite sayings and it's so true.  I may not have started up my own business but I am working towards qualifying as a lawyer and although I've had a lot of set backs along the way I know the best is yet to come which keeps me going.



Do you have any advice for starting up your own business?
