How to conquer fear on your entrepreneurial journey

It’s quite amazing how many times when women entrepreneurs get together, the subject of fear comes up in conversation. Fear of moving from a corporate career to becoming an entrepreneur, fear of the unknown when starting up a business, fear of not getting the balance right between business and family life, and fear of failure, to name but a few. Yet the important thing to remember is that no one is without fear; it’s what you do with that fear that separates you from those who succumb to it. There’s a great quote on the subject by the seemingly fearless Arianna Huffington, Editor in Chief of The Huffington Post. She says: “Fearlessness is not the absence of fear. It’s the mastery of fear. It’s about getting up one more time than we fall down.” What a great way of putting fear into context - something to think about when you next get one of those fear-ridden, anxious moments on your entrepreneurial journey!
