How I delight lately in finding new blogs and new people! Today I found Shelley Davis and her Blue Spiral Blog.
This most recent blog post was fun to read and brings up a tough question for anyone feeling uncertain about their current direction as a solopreneur.
They say every entrepreneur experiences imposter syndrome; just ignore it. But what if it’s really your gut…warning you you’re on the wrong path?
I definitely have had imposter syndrome in the past. Thankfully though, I was fully aware of it and completely embraced it as part of the process – a phase I had to work through and prove myself.
I have also experienced the other. I’ve found myself with whispers if discontent and even dread about my current path and it WAS indeed that I was headed somewhere I didn’t really want to go.
I’m blessed to be able to make quick decisions when I recognize a clear mistep – I call these little side journeys ‘suckers’ in my Big Tree Business Philosophy. When I spot them, I take an axe to it ASAP.
That’s easy because I’m clear about what by Big Tree is. It would be far more challenging if I weren’t.
How about you? Do you struggle with this right now? Hope over and read Shelley’s post (Imposter Syndrome or Gut Feeling?) and add your comments. I bet it will be an encouragement to her :)
