About this Episode

Fear is something that holds many women entrepreneurs from reaching their goals. Yet, all too often, we don’t clearly identify that fear is, in fact, to blame for our inaction. Fear can be a tricky little sucker and disguise itself in all sorts of ways. It’s not always obvious and up in your face. Or sometimes our fear deceives us into believing if we’re afraid that maybe we’re just not ready yet. “If you allow fear to hold you back, you’ll miss out on what could’ve been some of your greatest accomplishments.” - Ashlynn Cubbison. There are at least a dozen ways fear can disguise itself, but here are a few common examples: perfectionism, procrastination, anxiety, doubt, excuses, stress, anger, people-pleasing. Ashlynn and Lindsay don’t leave you hanging without sharing some practical exercises you can utilize to identify how fear pops up in your business!
