Full disclosure here’s a topic that scares the absolute shit out of me. As I build my business and watch my teams grow, it’s super awesome for me to see what people create, the culture that develops and the friendships and bonds that are made. But it scares me to death to realize that I am one of the most important people in their lives. It reminds me of when I was living the corporate life and working for someone else. My boss was a very important person to me. And now that’s me, I am the boss. That is super scary because what if things go wrong? What if I’m not able to continue providing? and what if I have to let them go?
It’s a scary, scary thing. Knowing that level of responsibility and knowing that I’m important in someone else’s life is a tough thing to accept. It is hard for me to embrace but it can also be a fun thing to embrace because it shows I am on the right track and things are growing the way that they should. The awareness of this has actually made me monitor my actions and monitor the D Face and the things that are coming out of my mouth. I know that the things I’m doing as a leader are so much more important and more watched than the things that I do completely on my own. That is one of the important steps to take in this entrepreneurial journey even if it is super scary. So, I am curious, how many of you have come across this or face the same issue? Does it scare you too?
