Don’t overthink things

I often hear this from women entrepreneurs in our network: “Had I known then what I know today I probably wouldn’t have started!” We have probably all felt like that sometime during the course of our entrepreneurial journeys. Yet there is something to be said for the power of naive optimism in those early days of building our businesses. It’s all too easy to get bogged down by people around you who question your business ideas or new product concepts; or to feel overwhelmed by the masses of information available to the newbie entrepreneur about how to build the perfect business model. There can often seem to be far more reasons not to start a business than to take the plunge. But ask any seasoned entrepreneur how they got going all those years ago, and chances are they will tell you they didn’t overthink things, they blocked out all the naysayers, and armed with a good dose of naive, some might say blind optimism, they just went out and did it!
