Launching a Business is Scary

Updated: Nov 2, 2021

I feel like the title is the post, but... since I'm here, I'll add the list of scary things:

  1. Will it be successful?

  2. Will I be good at it?

  3. Will I need help?

  4. Will people give me advice that I don't want?

  5. Do I have to be nice about the aforementioned advice or can I tell them to leemelone?

  6. Will people who haven't had a conversation with me in 2 months/2 years/2 decades and have no idea what I know, what I've experienced, and how I've changed attempt to speak with authority about what I know, what I'm doing, and what I'm offering?

But of all the questions and fears I have, the reason I'm moving forward is because of the answers to the questions below:

  1. Are you sure? Yes.

  2. Will the naysayers ever have the courage to say nay to your face? Ha! Yeah... right.

  3. Do you believe this is connected to your purpose? Absolutely

  4. What's the harm in trying? There is none.

So... even though this is scary and I still struggle to explain exactly what I'm doing, I know that this endeavor was placed on my heart for a reason. I have been building my knowledge, skills, faith, courage, and values system for such a time as this.

If not now, when? If not me, who?

Besides - when I asked Hobbes if he thinks this is a good idea, he ignored me - which is his way of saying "it's a great idea, I know you'll do great, and I'm proud of you". And that's really all the confirmation I need.
