225. The framework to help you conquer you fear of starting

Episode 225: The framework to help you conquer your fear of starting




Are you wanting to freelance but scared to start? Do the “what ifs” keep you from starting? You know this is exactly what you want but fear holds you back. Then, this episode is just for you! Use my three step framework to conquer your fear of starting.

1. Name your fear. 

What are you afraid of? Why can’t you do this yet?

2. Evaluate.

Is this true? Is this even worth worrying about? Is this hypothetical? Can I control it? What can I control?

3. So what? So, even if this does happen, then what?

I share with you common fears that I hear people who are wanting to start say and we talk through them. I even share how I recently went through this same framework recently with my new course, Pivot to Premium, a course I created for established freelancers who are wanting to take their business to the next level.

You can go after the things that you want. Doubt is going to creep in. That is normal. We are human. We can’t let those doubts control the actions that we take or let them define our life and our future. If you are afraid to start, go through my framework and then take action. Come join us in the Live Free Academy. I would love to support you in building your freelancing business. If you have went through this framework, and you’re still needing more help, send me a DM on Instagram (@micala.quinn) or an email at [email protected]. I would love to help you with this.

More about the Live Free Podcast with Micala Quinn:

How do I get started? What if I fail? Who will hire me? Is it really possible to create a consistent, full-time income from home?

Welcome to the Live Free Podcast with Micala Quinn where we will be answering these questions PLUS many more! Whether you’re just starting your freelance business (heck even if you don’t know what freelancing is yet) or you’re looking to scale, this podcast will give you tangible business advice along with inspiring interviews to help you create a life and career that works for YOU and YOUR family.

Your host, Micala Quinn, started out teaching high-school English, but when her first child was born, she immediately began searching for something more. She wanted a way to stay-at-home with her daughter (and future babies), but still needed to bring in a full-time income to help support her family. Micala started freelancing, quickly replaced her full-time income, and now helps other moms (like you) get started and grow their freelance business from scratch to 5K and beyond! She believes that being a working mom or a stay-at-home mom no longer needs to be a black and white decision. You CAN have both. On your terms!

Our motto is Mom Strong, Work Smart, and Live Free. Are you in? We’d love for you to join us each Monday, as well as in our Live Free Podcast Facebook community!
