I have so many thoughts and ideas trapped in my head that I simply do not know how to filter them all into some sort of meaningful plan. I know that many of you who follow me will understand EXACTLY what I mean. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to turn these thoughts into something creative and productive. My worries are numerous, what if I am not as creative or capable as I imagine? What if someone else does it all before me? What if I fail? Questions, doubts and hesitation.
Fear of failure should not be reason for doing nothing. It is the importance of making the very best of whatever talents I may have, realising a dream, doing something for ME, fulfilling a need to create.
Apart from the obvious requirements of financing any projects, sourcing materials etc etc, there is the concern that if my plan doesn't work, where does that leave my dreams? Having had these feelings of wanting to start my own business for SUCH an age, what would I do if I lose them?
There is I think something very special about women that decide to start a business of their own. Often (though of course not exclusively) these women are Mothers. I firmly believe this contributes hugely to achieving success. Raising a child is such an all consuming occupation and passion that, as in my case, once they leave home, the desire and instinct to NURTURE continues, I feel I NEED to nurture a business and raise it to the best of my ability.
Any advice welcomed!!
