Ever got caught up in business-window-shopping mode, browsing the glossy websites and carefully curated social media streams of your peers and finding yourself thinking: “Woah, everyone else has got their sh!t together. Am I the only one struggling here?”
If so, you’ll love today’s video blog because we’re getting real about the yo-yo journey of self-employment. I’m chatting with award-winning social entrepreneur Mark Leruste who’s interviewed business owners like you and me about the ups and downs, fears and insecurities we can so often encounter.
He’s sharing five reasons why self-employment can feel so hard, and also eight ways to start taking care of your primary business asset (yep, that’d be YOU).
Settle in with us and watch now:
In this 19-minute candid conversation, we’re talking Imposter Syndrome, unconventional hustling and how to deal with rejection, shame and self-doubt, as well as lessons learnt from the world of Mixed Martial Arts – plus be sure to watch to the end if you want to find out one of my “dirty little secrets”…
Over to you
What’s your dirty little secret? Share with us one fear or doubt you’ve encountered on the entrepreneur path. I guarantee: you’re not alone.
