We have a natural fear of unknown. Many of us have doubts about our abilities to perform (especially out of our comfort zones). This fear is most often the road block when we want to start a new business, start selling our art or even signing up to a gym.

In this episode of the Extra Paycheck Podcast I answer Joy’s question: “At what point did you begin believing in yourself and your business? Was there a specific moment where you were like, oh yeah, I’ve got this, or did it just slowly happen over time?”.

A lot of people reach out to me saying “I am not an expert”, “I am not good enough” and I always reply with the same thing: We all start somewhere. People who succeed in their ventures aren’t special, they simply decided that they want something different in their life and they went for it. Were they afraid? You bet! Did they succeed right away? Probably not. In fact every successful person could write a book about all the obstacles and failures they had to overcome through their career.

Failing is not bad, failing to start something is. In this episode I share my story and I offer a few tips that would help you break the fear and move forward with your dreams.
