It’s OK to mistakes. Whilst it’s human nature to dwell on them, I’ve learned to pick myself up, figure out what I did wrong, and know I’ll probably never make that mistake again. Plus, I’m better off spending an hour marketing my awesomeness, than wallowing in the odd, stupid mistake!
After being a clinical nutritionist for nearly a decade, I found many clients had not only physical health issues, but also mental health issues. I wanted to support them emotionally, not just physically. When I evaluated the market, I realized that the two areas I could differentiate myself (food counselling and nutritional psychiatry) were poorly represented.
Follow your dreams, or you’ll spend the rest of your life working for someone who did.
I’d share the advice I was given: say ‘yes’ to everything and fake it ‘til you make it (within reason!). This pushed me out of my comfort zone, but I realised I always managed to deliver. Also, there’s sooooo many free government resources for small businesses in Australia. Use them!
