As Susy Smith, the Editor of Country Living Magazine testifies herself, ‘feelings of self-doubt are something we all suffer with from time to time’.
Last month saw the launch of Country Living Magazine’s latest Kitchen Table Talent book, Turn Your Hobby Into a Business. It’s focused on helping enterprising women find their confidence and enabling them to earn a living from their creative talent. The book is full of tips and inspiring stories of women who have overcome their own fears and self-doubt and successfully set themselves up in business.
Turn Your Hobby Into a Business identifies nine confidence-related themes which many women have struggled with and overcome on their journey towards female entrepreneurship. In the book I share my thoughts and some client success stories on four of these themes:
1. Choosing a new path
2. Working differently
3. Beating Imposter Syndrome
4. Turning failure into a positive
5. Being true to yourself
6. Planning how your life could look
7. Gathering what you need to get started
8. Embracing the fear factor
9. Remembering you’re not alone
You can also take the quiz to test how ready you are to turn your hobby into a business which could save you previous time and money if you’re thinking of setting a creative business up.
So, whatever your talent, please know there are women out there who have been through what you’re going through and who are ready to support you and share their learnings so you can succeed in making a living from doing what you love!
Turn Your Hobby Into a Business may still be available to buy online from Hearst Magazines.
