If you’re building a business, do you worry about your critics? When you’re putting content out there or creating a new offer, do you find yourself obsessing over what people might say and think? Are you worried that people are going to come out of the woodwork and criticize your ideas and poke holes in them, and make you feel inadequate, inexperienced, or wrong?

I know a lot of entrepreneurs struggle with this, and I have also seen this fear of criticism hold a lot of people back from doing their good work in the world.

If that sounds at all familiar then you’re going to love this episode because I’ve got a guest with me today who has been struggling with this exact issue, and you’re going to get to sit in as I coach her through it, in real time.

Here’s where you can listen in to our conversation:

Julie Doan is a previous client of mine, and she has built a very successful health coaching business. She is a pharmacist by training, and she is also a health coach with a very busy and successful practice helping people with their metabolic and hormonal health.

But Julie has been thinking about a new direction for her business for quite some time, and the time is ripe right now for her to start building out this new project, but there are a few things that are standing in her way – probably the biggest is her mindset around this new venture.

So the format of this episode is going to be a little different because I’m going to be coaching Julie on this issue and I think you’ll be really interested to see how it all plays out, and what Julie discovers as we dig into her mindset about her new project for her business. 

How To Stop Worrying About Critics

I hope you enjoy this episode and that it gives you some new ideas or perspective about how to handle those mindset gremlins that will seek to stand in your way as you build your business!
