Like many, I grew up believing that in order to have a stable career, I needed to be an employee.
I was taught from a young age that having a job was far more secure than running a business. As immigrants to Canada, my parents had worked hard to get secure jobs, which enabled them to provide for us and give us opportunities, and I internalized the message that I should do the same, even though I always had an entrepreneurial streak — even as a young child.
Many of us don’t view ourselves as entrepreneurs, so the thought of starting our business fills us with fear and apprehension. We’re afraid that we don’t know what we’re doing and that we won’t be able to build a successful career. We’re afraid that we lack the skills to build a successful business and career and to build a steady stream of income.
But as someone who has now been running a business for over ten years, I can tell you that you likely have many of the skills you need to be an entrepreneur — it’s that fear is holding you back!
In this video, I share an exercise that will help you to reveal that you have the skills to be an entrepreneur. I hope it will help you realize that your entrepreneurial spirit has been there all along — you just need to embrace it!
