any entrepreneur can suffer a crisis of confidence

A 22-day Project Exploring The Many Ways Entrepreneurs Face Their Insecurity And Level Up

 

Tara McMullin
Founder & Host of What Works

Entrepreneurs like us appear to be confident people.

We’ve got it together. We’re making it happen. We’re doing all sorts of things—on a daily basis—that most people wouldn’t dream of doing.

On the inside, however, there’s often a roiling sea of emotion, insecurity, and questioning.

I’ve experienced plenty of times when I do feel confident and in flow running my business. Experience and diligence allow for ease.

But any time I step out into unknown territory, set a new goal, or seek to level up, that insecurity can come flooding back.

Leveling up takes a new level of confidence, too.

What happens when…

  • The next step in your plan requires you to show up in a whole new way and do things differently?
  • The call to level up becomes louder than the call to stay safe?
  • The situation changes and you need to recalibrate?
  • The excitement dissolves into panic? How do you move forward?

Candid Confidence is a collaborative project exploring how entrepreneurship and confidence collide–even many years after a business gets started.

Our goal is to shine a light on the mental habits, self-talk, and actions that help small business owners find the confidence to take the next step in their lives & businesses.
