Are you wondering how to overcome your fear of starting a business? Then read on. 🙂

To all women who dream about being yoga instructors, coaches, healers, shamans, creatives, writers, bloggers, freelancers, consultants, having a shop on Etsy, becoming a solopreneur, a soulpreneur, a mumpreneur, or whatever else keeps you dreaming:

The time to embody that which you came here to be IS NOW.

I have worked with so many women who have had the training, and the certifications, and theoretically are ready. Yet, most of these women think they don’t feel ready. And therefore are stuck in jobs that they hate.

“What do I have to teach?” They wonder and feel like a fraud by just thinking that they can lead a group of people in a yoga session. Or to actually coach people.

They block themselves and think that if they spend more time reading books, and blogs, and practicing for free with friends will help them gain confidence. They hope for the strength to start actually working in the field they trained themselves in.

Many women also block themselves as they don’t trust they can earn a living with it. Or not enough to pay all the bills, or their kid’s education. Yet I have so many examples of women who just went for it, never looked back, and made enough and even more than expected. Anything is possible if we set our minds to it!

It was scary for me too

I was in that situation too when I swapped my career for my healing business. Having zero clients, no idea how to build a website, nor having any savings left to hire anyone to do my website was scary. I also felt so small and not ready to start my own business.

But I did it anyway. I did my own website and created my whole business from scratch. Did I ever feel ready? Nope!

If you know you have a passion for something, and you feel deep down you would be amazing doing this very thing, then go and do it, dear ones. Life is too short to procrastinate or to succumb to our limiting beliefs and fears.

Having said that, when we have too many energetic blockages, too many of these limiting beliefs to the point where we feel blocked to even start, then there is work to do. 🙂

Oftentimes, there are also past life issues and karma in the way of starting our business or running it successfully. Then these need to be looked at, understood, and cleared.

What steps can you take to overcome your fears of starting a business?

As an intuitive business coach, I have seen countless women struggle with the fear of starting their own businesses. It can be daunting to take that first step toward entrepreneurship, especially when there are so many unknowns and risks involved. However, I firmly believe that anyone can overcome their fear and achieve their business goals with the right mindset and support.

The first step to overcoming your fear of starting a business is to identify the limiting beliefs that are holding you back. These beliefs can take many forms, such as “I’m not smart enough to run a business” or “I don’t have enough money to start a business.” Once you have identified these beliefs, it is important to challenge them and replace them with positive affirmations that empower you.

Another effective strategy for overcoming your fear of starting a business is to surround yourself with supportive people who believe in your abilities. This could include a mentor, a business coach, or a supportive group of friends or colleagues. By surrounding yourself with positive energy and encouragement, you will be better equipped to tackle any challenges that come your way.

As an energy healer and mindset coach, I also recommend incorporating practices such as meditation, visualization, and energy healing into your daily routine. These practices can help you clear any energetic blocks or negative emotions that may be holding you back from pursuing your business goals.

Believe in yourself

Ultimately, the key to overcoming your fear of starting a business is to believe in yourself and your abilities. As women, we are often taught to doubt ourselves and our capabilities. But the truth is that we are capable of achieving amazing things when we believe in ourselves and take action toward our goals.

In the words of the legendary Maya Angelou:

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

As a female empowerment quote, this serves as a reminder that we have the power to inspire and uplift others through our actions and our energy. By overcoming our fears and pursuing our dreams, we can inspire others to do the same and create a more empowered and fulfilling world for all.
