We are talking all about confidence today. What it takes to build confidence and how it’s not easy to find the confidence to start and grow a business. Starting seems to be the easy part. But sustaining confidence throughout the journey is a lot harder. So in this episode, we’re talking about tools and mindset shifts that we are practicing in our own businesses to create confidence not only in our businesses but in motherhood as well. After listening to this episode, I hope you’re able to boost your confidence and feel a little less alone.
In today’s show we discuss:
- Regaining confidence in your business after becoming a mom.
- How taking the leap and getting started before your ready builds confidence.
- Expectation vs reality. How much work you can actually get done in a day.
- Perfection vs confidence.
- Practicing forgiveness and building emotional intelligence.
- Avoiding isolation and surrounding yourself with other mom entrepreneurs.
- Quieting your inner critic & making peace with your weaknesses.
- How confidence and fear are not mutually exclusive.
