Challenges of running your own business

Challenges of running your own business

I have to share that my confidence is very shaky. For the past 9 weeks I've been writing a business plan and I have wanted to quit this whole biz thing on several occasions and just go back to finding a regular day job. But I keep on going.

My fears about running my own business:

  • I’m going to loose all my money doing it
  • It wont succeed
  • I don’t have a good enough idea
  • I’m not creative enough
  • What if I end up resenting it
  • I’m self taught and I don’t have the right ‘credentials’
  • It’ll take away time from doing other things
  • There is so much competition
  • I’m gonna have to ‘put myself out there’
  • No one is gonna care and I’ll waste a lot of time and money

Reasons why I’m gonna keep doing it anyway:

  • I AM creative!
  • I can always take courses and learn from professionals in the future if I want to get credentials
  • It’ll force me to interact with people in my community (and I might make new friends along the way :)
  • I’ll spend my savings in my business carefully and keep testing the waters without going into debt
  • There is only one Lutska - I stand out by being myself and that's literally the best I can do
  • I MAKE the time to do other things like music. It might not be a lot of time, but I will still keep it as a part of my life.

I’m done pumping myself up haha! I don’t know why I just spontaneously made that list, writing these updates has a way of digging into my subconscious and clearing some junk out!
