5 ways we get in our own way as entrepreneurs

… and how to deal with it!

In episode 10 of Micro Entrepreneur: the magic of thinking small I speak with Teresa Mitrovic, my personal business coach, on how we get in our own way as business owners (and let’s face it, we ALL have blind spots).   Teresa shares loads of gems and insights on how we can uncover these blocks and move through them.

This week’s guest

About Teresa Mitrovic

Teresa is an Executive Coach and the Founder of Redefining Life, a consultancy that helps executives and entrepreneurs create ambitious careers that are satisfying and sustainable so you can aim high knowing you have the skills to deliver incredible value while living a well-balanced life (however you define it). Together we create a career plan and working style that’s so closely aligned to that definition that boundary-less bosses, demanding clients, difficult teams, exhausting workloads and thriving careers become manageable again and work life balance is (almost!) inevitable.

What we covered in the show:

  • Head, heart and gut … how to know when you are on track an aligned
  • Why coaching is so powerful and what you should look for in a coach
  • How to deal with overwhelm as a barrier
  • Dealing with needing everything to be perfect before you launch or put stuff out there
  • Dealing with fear and how it might be having a bigger effect than you might think
  • Your comfort zone vs your stretch zone vs your panic zone
  • How to stay connected and keep moving forward
  • No man or woman is an island
  • The importance of keeping inspired
  • How to be more effective when we get a new product / service out
  • You can be amazing what you do and still be the best kept secret
  • How to move beyond fear of failure
