Thinking about entrepreneurship?
Who are your people?
YOU NEED PEOPLE.
Starting out people. Cheerleader people. Hard truth people.
Search them all out, you’re going to need them.
Starting out people….
this one’s a bit scary. There’s trust, insecurity, and doubt issues. You’re fragile. You need people who can give you advice, maybe an inside look at what you are about to invite into your world. And you need to trust them because it feels a lot like your heart is on the line when you’re ready to leap into entrepreneurship. Does that mean you need to heed all their advice?
GAWD NO! Don’t do that. Never take all the advice you're given...especially if it dims your light. Click To Tweet Take what you need, and leave the rest.
oh man, you need these ones. The ones that can get fired up and excited for AND with you! The ones who will pull out the pompoms right when you’re feeling like you just can’t do it. They’ll do wonders for your ego, drive and motivation.
Hard truth people…
the ones who will give you the straight up. It’ll sting. There will be pouting. But you need them. Criticism is important. If you only have cheerleaders you’re going to walk around thinking you’ve got this. (Here’s an insider’s tip…you’ve never fully got anything ;)) Hard truths help you grow.
Find your people and keep finding them. Meet new acquaintances and put yourself in awkward situations.
Awkward situations are where all the start-up, cheerleader, and hard truth people hang. 😉
