Since then, with help from my husband investing some money to get me started and my accountant, I have taught myself everything I know. I have expanded and have one main business with several branches underneath. I trade shares online and have several websites with more to come.

It is very exciting sitting down at my lap top computer and checking on my businesses. I love it. Did you notice I said my lap top computer? Yes I have a lap top. A few years ago if someone told me I would be doing this today, I would have laughed and said they have rocks in their head but here I am.

I've heard - and preached - about breaking big projects down into little ones, butrepparttar principle has never come home to me so clearly as on this trip. When I looked at it as a whole, it was so scary I almost backed down. But once I got out there and did just one task at a time and focused on that task only, it became not only manageable, but almost easy.

Just as important, all that "unnecessary" worrying I'd done beforerepparttar 146102 trip actually paid off. Because I'd mentally worked through a dozen different problems beforehand (of course,repparttar 146103 problems I ended up facing weren'trepparttar 146104 ones I'd worried about), I was more confident about meetingrepparttar 146105 challenges that did arise. And since my ultimate Plan B gave me permission to fail, I hadrepparttar 146106 courage to try.

So go ahead. Worry. But don't let it stop you. And give yourself permission to fail. Because only then will you haverepparttar 146107 courage to succeed.
