And the thing about passion is, it makes you hungry. And when you’re hungry for something, the drive you can get from it is like no other kind of motivation you can get. People may doubt you, but they aren’t you. Only you know how much you want this and how hard you’re willing to work to get it. If long days, late nights, and unsociable hours don’t frighten you, the chances are, you’re going to make this work.
The Pressure Will Push You
Because people will doubt you. Or at least, some will make you feel like you can’t do it on your own. But that pressure should only push you to succeed. It’s powerful to be able to take the insecurities of others and turn them into your own kind of motivation. Because with the right amount of pressure from people, including other companies, you can definitely make things work for yourself, no matter how long it takes.
You’ll Learn Along The Way

The Internet Is Your Friend

You’re Not Alone
It’s also important to remember that you’re not alone, even when you feel like it. In business, it’s always great to find yourself a mentor. With a mentor, you’ll have someone there to challenge you and push you, champion you and support you whenever you need it. Plus, when you have your own mentor, they’re likely to be able to share a wealth of experience with you, which isn’t always something you can find online or read in a book. It’s priceless.
You’ll Add Something New
You might feel as if you’re starting off green, and in a lot of ways, you are. But remember, green is also fresh as well as new. So, although you’re new to the business world, you also bring your fresh perspective with you. Because you’re desperate to succeed, you’re going to be bringing a lot to the table to not only make your business shine but also to try and outshine the competition too. And that’s something you may not have if you felt too confident in your abilities.
There’s A Professional For That
Even when you feel like you’re going to struggle and you won’t be able to handle the workload, remember that you don’t have to do everything yourself, because there’s a professional for that. Whether you need to get some HR consultancy services, hire an accountant, or anything in between, you can. In fact, outsourcing to experts is the best thing you can do when you have no idea if you’re doing things right.
Your Failures Will Make You
And yes, before you think you won’t, you probably will fail at some things. Whether it’s a spelling mistake in a tweet, or forgetting a zero off a figure that you’re invoicing, you will mess up from time to time. Because everyone does. But failure builds character; it’s what makes you stronger. So welcome failures when they find you, but remember to put them right.
It’ll Be A Fun Ride
Above all else, starting out on your own when you’re not entirely sure of your capabilities will be a fun journey. It’s going to be tough, but you should find it gives you some incredible stories to tell and it’s definitely enjoyable to be able to do something for yourself. So do exactly what, enjoy it and believe in yourself along the way.
