I confided in a friend how inadequate I was feeling. I told her that I have a business degree, not an English degree. I have only ever worked in advertising not writing. I'm under-qualified. I've just had a good streak of luck with my blog and luck doesn't last long term. What the heck am I even doing?
Confidence. On one hand, a part of us believes that authentic confidence is inbred, and in fact, requires no additional investment. On the other hand, another part of us is convinced that true confidence is acquired via hours of practice. The truth is that we all come into this world in pretty much the same way, so I can guarantee you that no one is actually born with confidence, and that it is in fact very much an acquired trait.
About six years ago I made the decision to leave my "safe" corporate job and pursue my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. I was scared, this was just after the financial crisis and the economy was slowly starting to recover. Plus my father was dying, it was an emotionally challenging time for me, but I knew that this was my window, this was my chance, I felt it deep within me.
