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?”

Entrepreneurialism.  When most hear that word they think excitement, adventure, and unlimited opportunities.  While true, there are other words that complete the picture: Stress, anxiety, and sleepless nights.

I’ve been an entrepreneur for 11 years.  While the journey has been worthwhile, it hasn’t been easy.  During those dark, difficult days when you wonder how you’ll make payroll, or whether the purchase order will come through, you need to rely on something to keep you going.
