I founded my business as a sole proprietorship in 2000 and struggled for many years through the normal growing pains associated with a start-up – deciding when and where to invest, identifying new target markets and prospects, and determining when the time was right to add new staff or services.  After 13 years of modest but steady growth, my company began to take off, doubling year-over-year revenue and adding new clients in record numbers.  This rapid growth earned us a spot on the Inc. 5000 and me the honor of being name to the Impact 50, a ranking of the 50 most influential female leaders of Inc. 5000 companies, as well as numerous top entrepreneur awards and accolades.

According to the Small Business Administration, over 90 percent of all businesses are considered small, which is having less than 500 employees. While there is a lot of information readily available to explain to would-be entrepreneurs about how to go through the steps to open one of these small businesses, that’s only half the equation. Nearly as many businesses close each year that open. Having a Marine mentality is one way to approach entrepreneurship and help the business become successful in any industry.

In my role as a book publisher and sales coach for authors, I’ve learned that the top fear of introverted entrepreneurs is fear itself. And it comes in the form of self-doubt.

I can’t tell you how many people I’ve sat and had a coffee with who have sheepishly shrugged their shoulders and said, “It’s probably a stupid idea. Maybe I shouldn’t do it.” To which I always reply, “How long have you been thinking about this idea? When did it first come to you?”
