Do you get overwhelmed looking at where you are now compared to where you want to be?
You are not alone. We all face self-doubt, fear, and overwhelm along our entrepreneurial journey. It’s a lot easier to avoid these unproductive business habits, instead focus on your brand and what you wanted to create in a first place.
As business owners, we’ve all faced blocks throughout our entrepreneurial journey. Some struggles might hit us harder than others, but we’ve all been hit by them at some point. I’m sure you know that feeling of panic, overwhelm, and “what am I doing!?” all too well.
You’ll be happy to hear that some of your biggest business blocks can be solved.
1.Lack of Confidence ( Imposter Syndrome)
If you can’t answer this simple question—”What do you do?”—without every other word being “um…” and “uh…” then you might be lacking some confidence in your business.We get advice on saying “fake it till make it” lot problem with that but when you fake it, subconsciously you don’t feel confident.
Defining your vision, mission, value, what you do, who you help, and how you help them—will make you authentic and you feel confident when you’re sharing your business with someone new.
Practice your line
I help [who you help] to [what you do] through [how you help them].
The more you repeat your one sentence, the more comfortable you will get with it. When you’re sharing your one sentence naturally and receiving great feedback, your self-doubt will be silenced.
2. Stop Comparing yourself with others
When we’re just starting out with our business, we spend a lot of time “researching.” Aka, we stalk website of competitor or every other person in our niche until we start second guessing ourselves and asking questions like: “What am I doing!?” and “It can completely paralyse you”
My advice turn-off Instagram and get to work on your brand on your business, Instead of comparing yourself and your business to others you need to focus on what you need to do in order to get where you want to go and what makes you different from the rest of your niche.
3. Put first thing is first
As new business owners managing your time, you most likely struggle with (a) not knowing what to focus on first or (b) feeling like you’re being pulled in a million different directions.In order to take control of your time, you need to define your brand direction and business goals. Once you have a solid idea of where your business is headed, you’ll be able to determine which tasks to focus on and accomplish first. Make time management system, schedule out your weekdays “Asana is great app use to plan my project, business in general”.
Consistency and unity across your brand are key to building trust and brand gaining more followers and getting new clients. If you’re sharing bright, crazy-colored photos on Instagram but using soft, calming tones on your website, your followers may not recognise you as the same person or the same brand. Having consistent with messaging and visuals across all platform can be a challenge for a busy entrepreneur.
Get designed cohesive brand identity with style guide that you reuse again and again translated you do not have your logo, typefaces, colour scheme, and overall design aesthetic planned out, every time you need to create something visual you’re spending unnecessary time and energy starting from scratch. You need to have your visuals planned and preferably documented in a style sheet. That way you don’t even have to think about design—You’ll know exactly what colours, typefaces, and photos to use every single time.
