Common Fears of Starting a Business and How to Overcome Them

Imagine walking on a tightrope with hungry tigers underneath.

Or imagine free-falling off a cliff into a waterfall.

That’s how intimidating the thought of starting a business is to some.

I don’t blame anyone. There is no safety net or undo button when you make the wrong move. There is a lot at stake and no one to point fingers at, if things hit the fan.

And there’s no one to hold you accountable, if you slack.

In this live stream, as I analyze the range of fears that hold would-be entrepreneurs back, we’ll see that while some of these fears are healthy and rational, some are counterproductive and not rational. With this clarity, you may have fewer reasons to avoid the leap into what could be one of the most exhilarating and rewarding experiences of your life.
