Listener Q&A: How To Know When You’re Ready To Start Your Business — Ep. 102

by | Jun 21, 2021 | Podcast

I survey my audience a lot. The most common reply I get back to most of the “Why not?” questions I pose is, “I’m not ready.” Not ready to start, not ready to change, not ready to grow, not ready to pivot.

As a current or future business owner, the idea of “readiness” is a mental and emotional block that will keep you stuck for a looooong time. In this listener Q&A episode, I’m giving you a few different tools to use to release that block and find out if you’re ACTUALLY ready.

“You start before you’re ready.” – Shawn Mynar

“I was no longer willing to spend my precious time in a situation that I didn’t love, doing something that didn’t light me up.” – Shawn Mynar

“My desire to live my life in the way I wanted to live… was just one notch higher than my fears, my doubts, my beliefs and the scary stuff, and so I started my business.” – Shawn Mynar

“You have the power within you to make that decision for yourself.” – Shawn Mynar
