with Tara Gentile
Overcome your fears and
start your business today
Let’s face it: starting an online business can be scary. And the scariest part is the big launch: you press the “go” button, hold your breath and hope for the best: What if nobody cares? What if everybody thinks my product stinks? What if I’m annoying everybody?? We’ve all been there— the fear is real!
But starting a business doesn’t have to be scary, and it’s not as complicated as you might think.
The secret is that it doesn’t matter how shiny your website is, what software you use, or how many Twitter followers you have — the only thing that matters is whether you understand your customers. That’s it! The rest is just execution.
