Some common fears we have:
thinking our things are not good enough
sharing our story
speaking in public
reaching out to retail store
seeking wholesale ventures
The big thing we fear is having other people judging us personally and creatively, and the really big one, the fear of failure.
An easy way to get past those fears is to know that you are not the only one that feels that way. It is common emotion for most creatives. You just have to take a deep breath and go for it, regardless of the results after making the first step each step after that will get a little easier.
Fear can be your friend.
Use your fears to know that you are learning. Exploring those new territories, even scary ones, make you more alert to growing and learning.
Fear is also a sign that what you are doing is important. The stuff that is important to you usually has some fear around it, because you care about how it turn out.
When you are in a situation that scares you, accept the fear, take a deep breath, recite a positive affirmation, and go for it!
Fear is part of our process as creative business owners. Don't let it stop you from trying new things and growing your business.
