Women Entrepreneurs - Who do You Believe?
So many women entrepreneurs I speak to and work with have fallen into the trap of believing that having the right information and knowledge and getting your strategy right is the key to guaranteeing a successful business. But for the majority of women in business this just isn’t the case.
I say this because of my own personal experience, and the experience of many of the women I’ve coached.
So what’s really going on here?
Well, if you consider you’re bombarded with information from the time you start your business that says you need a strategy, you need these specific tactics (whether that’s marketing, sales, networking, or social media) in order to succeed. And you believe this is everything you need to succeed. But where are you in this success equation? Do you put this information through your own internal filters? Do you check out how it sits with you in terms of who you are and how you want your business to be? Do you listen to your own body in terms of how it feels to you?
Because I believe as a woman entrepreneur you’re emotionally invested in your business and that if you don’t put this information through your own emotional filters it can all get overwhelming, you can find it difficult to focus, and you can struggle to get the results you actually want!
So, are there certain business strategies, tactics, or actions you find aggressive or competitive? And do they leave you not taking the actions and beating yourself up for procrastinating; or feeling like a fake or like you need to be different (more ‘professional’) in your business; or maybe feeling like you’re just not good enough? If so you’re not alone!
