When you work from home - no matter if you're a baker, mechanic, pet sitter or VA - you're going to come across these moments where you are just terrified about what you're doing. And then you start to ask yourself questions like: Where am I going with this? How will I pay my bills? Why isn't this working? What am I doing wrong? I'm going to fail, aren't I?
It's terrifying. But it's okay. It's okay to be scared. Being scared means you're thinking about what you're doing. You're looking at problems. You're not complacent. And this can be great to motivate you to make positive changes. But you have to remember that. Let your fears motivate you to positive changes. Don't crumple up into a ball and let them control what you want.
Rather than: I don't have any customers. I'm a failure.
Tell yourself: I don't have any customers. It looks like I'm not targeting the right audience. I'll need to change that.
Rather than: No one is buying my "X." Why did I do this in the first place?
Tell yourself: No one is buying my "X." I need to analyze my marketing strategy. I need to get some feedback on my product to understand why people may not be buying it.
Use your fears to become proactive with your business. You can do this!
