The self-employment paradox: we crave the freedom...then wither in isolation
We're smart. We have ideas. We’re independent and want to call the shots and do things our way and mostly by ourselves.
Yet isolation is our biggest nemesis.
When we work alone - for ourselves and by ourselves - we miss out on the perspective, ideas, feedback, accountability and inspiration that comes from being part of a team.
Isolation also leads to procrastination and self-doubt - making it extra hard to take the actions we need to take in order to succeed.
If you're not one of those Self-Driven Hustle Hustle Hustle Type A personalities - you might start to think that you don't "have what it takes" to be in business. (You may even have been told that before.)
It's possible to succeed on your own terms (even if you're more of a laid back "Type B" like me). It's OK to get help and support. And business coaching doesn't need to look like someone else's cookie cutter blueprint of ethically questionable sales tactics.
