Today we are talking about an uncomfortable subject – getting out of your comfort zone!
So why should you be getting out of your comfort zone?
This one is really simple. Essentially, when you get out of your comfort zone, that is the place where the growth happens. And if you’re interested in starting a business, you’re really not going to be able to do this if you’re not prepared to get out of your comfort zone.
One of the first questions a new business owner should be asking herself is, what’s the quickest way I can earn money in this business? Luckily, the quickest way to your first paying client is also the best for your business, and in this video, I’ll show you why.
They say that starting a business is like going through intense therapy; it brings up all your issues and personal stuff that you have to work through in order to make things work.
I see this all the time with my clients (and myself!) and one of the most common places it shows up is in our confidence.
Clients tell me that they’re afraid to post their blogs or mention their opt-in offer on social media because they’re afraid it’s not good enough, or they don’t want to come across as too salesy, and I can totally relate. When I was just getting started, I found my first blogs excruciating. I thought they were so bad! But actually looking back they are totally fine.
You are always going to be your own worst critic, and the first steps are always the hardest, but actually doing them is what makes or breaks your business, so you’ve got to dig deep and find the confidence to take action.
