self-con·fi·dence n. Confidence in oneself or one’s own abilities: “Without self-confidence we are as babes in the cradle” (Virginia Woolf).
Here’s a work around if you don’t have that self-confidence…
Get a partner who has it and team up. YOU do those things you ARE good at, e.g. time management, offering tlc, training, nurturing others, organizing events, i.e. whatever YOU bring to the table.
The self-confident person does the reaching out and engages new people.
A business like ours requires more than one person, more than one skill set and different talents to get it off the ground and keep it running. Find someone you can work with.
That’s what I did. The partner I had in building my most successful NM business is the person who suggested I do it. She proposed that I be the ‘out front sales person’ because I was the self-confident one. She’d do the ‘behind the scenes’ work, including the organizing, training and nurturing of the team, because she was the one with brains and therapy background. I agreed and we built a successful business together this way.
Many effective people do this and call it ‘working smarter not harder.’
“I not only use all the brains that I have, but all that I can borrow.”
-Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the US.
