For me, it’s a struggle sometimes to really believe in myself. Nor are you too young, too old, too whatever…, and I know I’m not alone in this. So I decided to write this post, to remind all of us, powerful but at times insecure, ladies, of all that we’re capable of.

Right now, I want to remind you to believe in your own potential, even though you:

  • Think you are too late.
  • Have limited resources.
  • Don’t have a massive network (e.g. in the country where you live, or in your home town).
  • Feel you don’t have a lot of experience (or maybe not in this field).
  • Never even thought about starting your own business because no one around you is doing such a thing. 💡

{fill in whatever applies to you}

And I’d like to add:

💯 Even though you aren’t 100% sure yet what you want to do and what your business will look like.💯

You are a woman hear yourself ROAR and believe in yourself!

These factors above don’t matter. However, what does matter is that you choose to take the reins of your life in your hands and lead. It’s never too late. Nor are you too young, too old, too whatever…

Starting is the hardest part but do it anyway.

In other words, don’t wait, and start now, right from where you are. No matter the doubts and fears, the shaking hands, the trembling voice, start. Even when it feels like your courage is located somewhere in the pit of your stomach. It doesn’t matter. Start.

Keep things simple and start small

If starting a business is your thang, take a micro-step by finding free courses that can teach you all about small business management. Luckily, the internet is a treasure trove of free information. A lack of resources shouldn’t keep you from realising your dreams.

Do you think you need more experience?

Are you looking for a new job and believe that you don’t have the required experience? Ask yourself if that’s really the issue. It’s all relative. What’s missing, most likely is self-confidence. Really, you know so much more than you think you do. In fact, I bet that you’ve probably already read 10-15 books on the subject. Hello, you know more than most, and that’s enough to get started.

Surround yourself with people that inspire you.

There are people abound in this big, but at the same time small, world. So, there really isn’t any reason a small network should stop you. In most towns, you’ll be able to find many events, especially for women (entrepreneurs) looking to empower each other. Even if you live in a small town where nothing fun like that ever happens, don’t despair. The internet exists for a reason, go online, follow other female entrepreneurs and let them inspire you.

Believe in your potential.

How will you show that you believe in yourself?

P.s. The photo above is of me believing in myself and setting things in motion at the Chamber of Commerce (Jan. 2019). The action was part of my year of yes attitude. It was an important step on the road to taking myself seriously and believing in my dreams. So much has happened since then and more is to come.

Stay tuned 😉

It’s never too late, all you need to do is take the first step and believe in yourself!

Adventure Awaits!
