11 Fears Every Entrepreneur Must Overcome
By: Deep Patel
It wouldn’t be an adventure if it wasn’t scary. Fear is a fundamental part of human psychology. Our brains are wired to feel fear because it helps us avoid calamity; it keeps us safe.
But fear can also hold us back — if we let it. Fear feeds on fear, meaning the more we try to avoid something we’re afraid of, the bigger and deeper our anxiety grows. To overcome this, we must face our deep-seated misgivings and worries. We have to acknowledge our fears and find ways to move beyond them.

By: Jeff Haden

Do You Need to Start Outsourcing? Here’s How to Tell!
Business 2 Community
By: Melissa Ingold
So many entrepreneurs consider outsourcing to be a luxury; something they’ll pursue when time and money and resources all align perfectly. But here’s the hard truth: That alignment may never happen! And waiting for multiple components of your business to click into perfect harmony is a massive waste of your precious time.
Many of us fear handing off tasks to total strangers, or feel that we don’t deserve to work with hired help.
So we trot out excuses like “I can’t justify the expense,” or “I’ll hire out once I start making $X per year,” and stifle growth with fear.
