How to be a confident entrepreneur

Starting something on your own requires tenacity, faith and patience to make it work. But there are some times when even the most resolute entrepreneur lacks self-confidence. Self-confidence is not a static trait; rather, it’s a mindset that takes effort to maintain when the going gets rough. It isn’t just the luck of the Gods or something you are born with, it’s a muscle you need to strengthen.

  • being aware of your emotions, actions and response to adversity 
  • cultivating optimism and growth mindsets to help you audit your current capabilities,
  • identify what you have yet to master and how to grow accordingly.
