4 reassurances for the emerging entrepreneur

January 06 2017

1. Stop pretending. You don’t need to have everything figured out, you don’t need to be someone you’re not. Be authentically, completely, fully you. Direct your energy towards what you’re good at and what brings you joy. When you are able to step into your own and confidently accept your unique talents and quirks, you will be richly rewarded.

2. It is perfectly fine to take a slow beginning. Make cautious choices and weigh decisions carefully until your path and vision become clear.

3. Beat perfection. There will never be a perfect circumstance, and there will always be an obstacle waiting to derail you off course. Don’t let it. Sometimes you’ll need to ship before you’re ready, sometimes you’ll need to pitch without preparation. Go.

4. Nothing happens overnight: success, change, failure, pivots. Play the long game and keep your eyes fixed on your goals.
