Today is National Face Your Fears Day and is a day where I have been reflecting on some of the things that I have overcome.
I'm not sure if you are able to tell from the videos I post on our socials or from our stories, but I am a very introverted person and have always been quiet growing up. Even till this day at my 37 years I am still a little quiet sometimes when I'm within a group of people.
One of the things that I was scared of when I founded my own beauty brand was putting myself out there for others to judge me. I mean nobody likes being judged so I think you might relate to me in a similar aspect.
A very important thing that I have learned is getting out of my comfort zone. Getting out of your comfort zone is how you grow. I can not tell you the many things that I avoided when I initially started the brand just because I was scared of people. It came to a point where I realized that I was hindering the brand's growth and reach.
I reminding myself that I am a CEO and Founder of a small self-funded independent beauty brand! So my little introverted self was the only one who could share to others about my love and passion for this brand.
I didn't want to feel any regrets so I took one little step out of my very comfortable bubble and started attending networking events, speaking in front of a group of people in pitching competitions and creating beauty video content to share.
The more I put myself out there, the more comfortable I got in FACING MY FEARS! Taking little steps led me to connecting with other amazing women entrepreneurs and also led me to other amazing opportunities, so taking a risk was so worth it because GREAT THINGS never came from comfort zones.
