Hey everyone, I’m trying to find out how one could really improve the lives of Entrepreneurs ;)

I just have 2 simple questions:
  1. As someone who is currently self-employed, do you sometimes find yourself held back by fears, doubts or anxieties? If so, what are the 2 biggest issues you’re dealing with?
  2. Regarding fears, doubts or anxieties, what would you wish for more than anything else?

Thanks so much -
please DM me if you’d prefer, looking forward to reading your answers!

For me, the biggest anxiety would be whether or not I'd make enough for my family.

I started working since I was in high school but I was always employed. It was only when I started a family when I became self-employed. Like a lot of people, I equated employment with stability and to give that up for work-life balance was terrifying.

Another source of anxiety for me was whether my personality would be a good fit for business.

I'm really more of an introvert. I don't like socializing and I have very low tolerance for small talk. I know I needed to network for business but, for the longest time, I wasn't really sure how I would manage to do that.

I'd like to think I've found a way to manage most of my doubts, fears and anxieties. I'm still here, aren't I? ;) And my family is happy and well-provided for so I must be doing something right.
