So, you’re ready to become your own boss?

You’ve had enough of the 9 to 5, or more likely the 7 to 9! You are finished with the sleepless nights, the lost weekends and the crappy boss. You’re ready to scrap the endless meetings, lots of hot air and zero action?

You’ve broken free from the corporate world, taken your redundancy, made the decision not to return after maternity leave or just plain old handed your notice in. You feel good about what you are going to be doing and why you are doing it.

You have a great idea, a fantastic set of skills, you’re an expert in your field and you know you’ll be great.

So, what’s holding you back now? 

What’s that cold fear that’s creeping in to the newly found sense of freedom and anticipation? Why the procrastination? Why are you watching daytime television, ironing tea towels or cleaning out the garage??!!

 

I know why. I’ve been there.

 

You are a professional business woman. You’ve probably done one, some, or all of the following:

  • coached endless numbers of people on business or personal improvement,
  • run fantastic marketing campaigns,
  • generated millions of pounds of income,
  • stood in court and faced the opposition head on,
  • finalised accounts, advised clients, dealt with HMRC and complex tax issues

The list is endless of the brilliant and amazing things that business women in the corporate world achieve.

So, what’s so tricky about this owning your own business malarkey?

Well, if you don’t have a plan and you’re not sure where to start and you don’t know who to ask then it’s going to cause a problem. And, by the way, asking your best friend isn’t the answer!

Go to all the networking events you want, but if you don’t know who your ideal client is, if you’ve not researched your target market, if you don’t know how to pull together your income & expenditure together or set up all your social media accounts with links and scheduled posts, then before long those networking meetings may just become an excuse to get away from your desk and pretend it’s not happening.

The good news is this, you don’t have to have all the answers, you don’t need to be in control of everything, you are not selfish or lazy when you outsource things to others. Women are brilliant at just about everything (except reversing – because we look forward to the future instead of looking behind to the past!), we multi task, we engage, we support, we are passionate – and sometimes we need to let go.

Letting go is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of recognising that you are brilliant at what you do, what your passion for business is and you don’t have to know everything. If you want a supportive, empowering and knowledgeable consultant to offer direction, assistance and value for money then I am your lady.

  1. Great advice although many ladies including myself need to deal with issues in the past before they can move forward and be more confident in their abilities.

    1. Thanks for your comments Victoria – and I do agree. It’s taken me a long time to get my confidence back and it’s always a work in progress. If I’d had a “me” 4 years ago I think it would have sped up the process. I know everyone is different and sometimes it takes an outsider to help us see what talents all of us have x

  2. Networking is a great way to make sure you don’t feel lonely in your business, so is using co-working space and mastermind groups.
    You don’t have to be in your own business on your own.
    (defining your ideal client and your networking is a whole other post though!)

    1. So true Louise – are you reading my mind?! Watch out for new blogs and freebies coming up about networking the right way for your business and nailing your ideal client!
