It's a familiar story for a lot of us.
You start diving deep into research, learning everything you can about how to start an online business.
You're keeping up with all the hottest marketing blogs and business blogs, like Neil Patel's work and Entrepreneur magazine, and you're on the hunt for the ultimate business idea.
This can go on for a long time.
And that's because there's a lot of anxiety associated with making the decision to go into business for yourself.
What if you fail?
What if you end up looking foolish? What if you lose all the money you invested in it?
When it comes down to it, you have to make a leap of faith.
This takes a lot of courage and conviction, and it's not easy.
That's why so few people become entrepreneurs.
In an article for Entrepreneur, business coach and branding strategist Amber Lilyestrom explains how critical this leap is.
Make the leap.
There comes a point where you have to make the investment in yourself and your businesses and walk away from what's no longer serving you.
It doesn’t have to all happen in the same day, but the quicker you start creating your business plan, the sooner you can start putting it into motion and starting your own journey.
After all of the preparations you’ve made to get to this point, don’t be afraid. I had one client when I made that leap, but somehow I knew I was doing the right thing.
It’s your turn.
Think about what you want the most and how your life is supporting those desires. If your life isn’t supporting those desires, it may be time to make the leap.
Don’t feel like the life you want is too far from reach. Quite often, it is just one decision away.
