Confidence is something that I have always always struggled with and as expected, it is proving to be a significant issue as I venture into the world of creative entrepreneur. Being a business newbie is scary shit. For us creatives, there is no set formula for success and there is SO MUCH that we don't know about traditional business methods and strategies. The question on my mind today is: HOW do we make a start as a business newbie and HOW do we start building our confidence as an entrepreneur? I also share 5 tips for building your confidence - tried and tested from my own experience!

After my experience at last month's Artful Business Conference, I felt inspired to make this week's episode all about the importance of finding your tribe! When you are in the depths of building a creative business, or you are embarking on a project of some kind, you must must must have people around you - a community - that will be able to support you no matter what. Online communities are great, but you also cannot beat meeting and making connections with people in the flesh. My main message is this: believe in yourself, get out there in the REAL WORLD, and show your lovely face!
PS: I do make some errors as I tend to do ;) so I have added some corrections in the show notes...
