Ep 81: Let's chat about undue pressure you're putting on yourself

So many of you are putting so much pressure on yourself as you start your business. Yes, your business is important but so many put undue pressure on themselves and you need to stop yourself from bearing this.  

Know that you are not alone if you feel pressure. In my 1x1 coaching, in my FB group, and in my Just Start Academy,  I see people expressing the pressure they feel.

Here are some examples of what they are telling me:

  • Some feel heavy with the weight of the whole business process.
  • Some feel pressure to do everything in their businesses...but you don't have to.
  • Some feel pressure to be something they are not and take on tasks that aren't their best skill. Nope, you shouldn't do things that you aren't good at  - get help.
  • Some feel pressure to have everything perfect out of the gate. Nope, you don't have. There is no way it can be perfect right away.
  • Some feel pressure about the money. And yes, it's understandable. But there are so many ways you can be resourceful and not spend a ton of money getting started or risk a lot of money.


One big way to take the pressure off is to realize first of all that this business is not life-threatening. The world is not going to end if the worst-case scenario happens: it fails. Let me tell you that the world will not end.  If you are taking smart steps though, there is a really good chance this will succeed!

Another thing you can do is to sort through what needs to be done and turn them into steps. Rate all of the steps and rate them according to whether you would love to do them, will do them but don't love them, and then those things you for sure don't want to do. Those last things are the ones that need to be outsourced.

And the main thing you can do is CHANGE YOUR FOCUS. Focus on HELPING people vs. all the things going on in your business. Think about how your product or service can help people. Take steps to help people. Then...those random thoughts of pressure will slowly start to subside.
