Dear Entrepreneur,

Everybody is afraid of something, including entrepreneurs.

We have plenty to be afraid of. So, if you are insisting that you’re afraid of nothing, sorry, I’m calling your bluff. As humans, fear is a natural emotion. No matter how confident you think you are, or how cool you feel, I can guarantee that you’ve felt afraid from time to time and that this fear has influenced plenty of decisions you’ve made, too.

The truth is that denying your fear won’t make it go away. In fact, allowing your fear to hide away in the shadows, will only give it more power over you. It’s high time that we get really honest with ourselves and admit that we are vulnerable.

Try to take some time and think about what you’re truly afraid of. Don’t only think about your fears, ensure that you write them down, and acknowledge what you are really afraid of. Doing this helps you address and overcome your fears rather than living in a state of denial.

With love,
