Episode 84: Overcoming Fear Factors in the Writing Business

Are you scared to start your writing business? In today’s episode, I am talking about overcoming fear of starting your writing business.

“No matter how great you are, or the skills and experience you have, those aren’t the things that keep you from growing your business. It’s your self-doubt.”

Here are steps to overcoming fear factors:

Recently, I quit my educator job at the hospital and it was extremely hard for me to do because from my peers- the nurses, I was supported. But the support I was given from my bosses and the negativity I was exposed to. It was really horrible. I’ve never been happier since I quit. Then there are a few things afterward that solidify the negativity and make a clearer picture of why you quit.

Find More Accountability

After you find some support you get some accountability from other people to push yourself forward and get some self-confidence and you will soar.

It is important to make sure you’re clarifying your message out there. Ensure that you are telling people who you are, what you do, and who you do it for.

Steps in Starting Your Writing Business:

If you keep denying yourself just because you’re not good enough, opportunities will never come to you.

At least get curious about starting your writing business, you don’t have to do it today, you don’t have to do it tomorrow but I don’t want you being paralyzed from the fear of not doing it.
