Focusing on doing rather than being

As editors, we like to learn, read and look at things from all angles. If we’re not feeling ready and confident in our business, we can focus too much on consuming more content. We convince ourselves we need to know more to do more; we need to learn more before we can take action.

But most people know what they need to do. The problem is that they are not being the person they need or want to be.

Becoming a confident business owner means taking action before you’re ready. Which means believing that you are, in fact, a confident business owner.

Not a fan of ‘fake it till you make it’? Try ‘act it till you become it’.

And if you’re not feeling it, dig deep to find out why. What are those fears that are holding you back from being the confident business owner you want to be?
