When people ask me what I do and start talking to me about career coaching and helping people find a job they love, I often hear the response ‘I’d love to do something different but I can’t do anything else.’ Inside I am screaming YES you can.
Maybe you are like me. I used to think that I wasn’t brave enough to work for myself, that I didn’t have the skills needed to promote my business and make sales and therefore being a business owner was not for me. The world entrepreneur I associated with creative people who were filled with bright ideas. They were brave and willing to take risks. I would think of inventors and Dragon’s Den and I would dismiss the idea as I just didn’t associate these traits with me. However, what I was doing was getting in my own way. I was letting my low self-esteem and confidence hold me back.
