For so many, the gut reaction to hearing the word ‘entrepreneur’ is a nice, messy mix of fear and anxiety. And I get it, I’ve been there.
And no amount of time makes it go away. That’s one of the biggest myths of fear – that you one day stop feeling it. Ah hell, no. Even Queen Bey, Beyonce, isn’t immune. “I have accomplished nothing in my life without a little taste of fear in mouth.”
As an enthusiast and Ambassador of Shoeboxed, I recently sat down for an interview with a Shoeboxed team member to talk about my journey of fear, shipping and the building of Modern Entrepreneur (less-than-ideal clients, fretful nights, amazeball apps and awesome employees included).
Without further ado, check out the interview below, where I unveil how this pint-sized Basque girl overcame her fear of becoming an entrepreneur with a beautiful thing we call organization: Conquering Fear and Building Businesses: A Shoeboxed Success Story.
Are you a Modern Entrepreneur? Do you live and work at the junction of high-growth and high-impact? Do you know that you can do well by doing good? Do you know that there is a better way of doing business? Are you looking to connect with other like-minded people who “get” you and your work?
At The Modern Entrepreneur Community we provide each other with:
– Honest feedback.
– Introductions and important resources to your most trying challenges.
– Support when you’re feeling beat up or wanting to burn it all down.
– Examples of doing well by doing good: because you can’t be what you
You don’t have to do it alone. So why are you?
